Janine’s life experiences have tested her in many ways. Janine lost her brother to a 2-year battle with Leukemia when he was 21. She was 19 years old, and began running marathons and triathlons to raise money with Team In Training for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to make a difference in the lives of other families and in research. In recent years, Janine has supported other family members’ physical struggles from her mother’s breast cancer to her father’s brain tumor. One of her passions is competitive athletics, and she is a 4th Degree Black Belt in Isshinryu Karate. She is an avid runner, a “Tough Mudder” and loves a good physical challenge. Beyond the eustress of athletics, Janine has experienced the distress of infertility. After years of many treatments and procedures with the support of her husband, the courage and determination paid off. They are the proud parents of three children – two through IVF and then a “miracle baby” naturally. Janine balances all that ‘doing’ with ‘being’ by enjoying yoga, spa visits and nature. Janine loves all things outdoors including running, hiking, skiing, scuba diving and fishing. Her favorite quote is “The most wasted day of all days is one without laughter.” -ee cummings. These are just some of the examples that enable empathy for her clients while supporting all that is possible for them.
