Closing out my query for now. I used to think she reply to YA fantasy on Saturdays. There is not a way to nudge her without get an offer for from another agent.

justinjoseph...$25/year is well worth the money for a Premium membership. Please spend it. It's not fair for us to give you the info for free. And don't DM me please.

EDIT: I said DON'T DM me.

@JustinJoseph Sometimes agents do take longer than six months unfortunately. Agents are really swamped these days and I've heard writers sometimes get responses a year later.
If this is your first time nudging, I'd say it's okay to go ahead and nudge her. But if you've nudged before and received no response, there really isn't much else you can do.

Same form as others: "Thank you so much for giving me the chance to consider ____. It’s clear that you’ve devoted a lot of hard work to this project, and your passion comes through in your writing. However, while there is a lot to be commended, I didn't have a clear editorial vision for the project and thus don't think that I would be the most effective champion for your book."

To the comments below, I've sent my query in March too, about 6 months ago, and no response. I think agents close for queries when they need time to catch up.

Bobo3080, I think at this point she might finish reading queries until late November/early December. I know it’s extremely difficult but persevere. I’m still waiting on March submissions.

@sally646, you may feel a little better knowing that the agents won't directly get the money you paid for the pitch--the conference organizer which paid for them to participate does. I work at a literary center with a writing conference, and that's how we're able to offer literary agent pitch meetings--an opportunity most writers in our region wouldn't have otherwise. Still, I understand the frustration of meeting an agent who requests pages only not to hear back from them for several months (if at all), having experienced it myself. Good luck with your querying! And as I tell myself: all you need is one yes from a great agent to start a writing career.

@gwprouse, thanks I’m just hoping for good news.

for my last query to her, it took her 350 days to respond. I'm also waiting for a response on my current one from March. More than likely she will respond at one point, but yes, it could be awhile, or not until you nudge once she opens to queries again.
