Janene is thrilled to join the Girls Leadership team where she gets to combine her financial talents, which she has honed for over 15 years, with her passion for girl empowerment. A Cal Poly graduate, she started at Oracle Corporation and enjoyed working as the Real Estate Controller before leaving to raise her three daughters. While chasing and driving those girls from adolescence to teenagers she joined several boards for non-profits and discovered a passion for volunteering and giving back. Janene loves working with girls and has spent the last ten years as a Girl Scout leader for three troops. In her leadership role she most enjoys giving girls opportunities where they can build their self-confidence and self-esteem. Before joining Girls Leadership Janene spent three years working for Education Unlimited, one of the nation’s leading summer academic enrichment program providers. A Bay Area native she still loves all that it offers – an abundant amount of hiking trails to chase after their golden retriever, heading to the beach or off to the mountains to hopefully find some snow to ski on.
