After graduating from Fordham back in 2010, Janine moved to Hoboken with her best friends “just for a year”. Five apartments and almost a decade later, she couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. She’s worked in fundraising and events for nonprofits in healthcare, the arts, and higher education and is excited to bring her passion for giving back to the community to Hoboken Girl Helps. Janine loves a good dance class or run along the Hudson (does the view ever get old?!) but reserves equal if not more space in her heart for Biancamano’s sandwiches, brunch at Elysian, and iced coffee from Bwè. She never says no to a Target run or beach day. When she’s not out and about in the Mile Square, Janine enjoys hosting dinner parties with friends, True Crime podcasts, and prosecco – sometimes all at the same time!
