Janine loves to see the fading image of her career as a sole practitioner CPA in the rearview mirror as she continues to put months, years, and miles between licensed tax work and shinier prizes like coffee dates and writing groups. She lives with her husband in Bend, Oregon with their above-average yellow Labrador Retriever, Pearl. The two sons of this memorable and life-tested marriage live within hours and a few mountain ranges. Both sons are unbelievably handsome and married to exceptional women. Janine has been an active and maturing member of a local faith fellowship in Bend. Discipleship and walking side by side with younger women has been a priority of hers for years and she now is releasing words onto paper continuing that voice and fulfilling her love for writing.
