With the mentality "giving back to society enriches us all", Janine has been active in the community for many years. Here are a few of the activities & groups with which she is involved.


It’s always a special occasion when we can blend our passions for giving with our work.  I’m excited to be an Assante “Circle of Giving” advisor and will be supporting the leading-edge Princess Margaret Hospital in the One Life Gala.
