Confession: Jenny's Newbie Quiz is waaaaay overdue. Like, a year? Our bad.

Here's the thing: Jenny joined BAVC's Preservation Department all the way back in 2012 as a Dance Heritage Coalition Fellow and, well, she's basically the bizness. Between dropouts, dubmasters, baking tapes and yelling at the playback goblins (I'm speculating here; video preservation is really complicated you guys! --ZB), she does it all and we ended up bringing her onto the BAVC Staff permanently. So, please forgive the lateness of this blog, sit back and meet Jenny!
