Since returning to her hometown of Winnipeg, Janine has been heavily involved in the Manitoba rowing community. Through these experiences, coupled with her athletic career, Janine realized her real passion for coaching. Janine has been Head Coach for the Manitoba Rowing Association in 2017.
Janine is a fully certified RCA Performance Coach and an Advanced Coaching Diploma student of the NCCP – National Coaching Certification Program. She is a Chartered Professional Coach and a coach mentor with Sport Manitoba.
As a coach, Janine’s Vision is to create a safe and enjoyable space for people to learn life-skills through rowing, to be successful people and athletes.
Janine’s Mission as a coach is to use rowing as a mechanism to draw out the best in others by instilling in them the importance of being yourself, of working hard to achieve a goal and of cooperating with others to find the best version of you.

I will come to have fun.
I will show respect for others through my actions, words, and attitudes.
I will commit to showing up, to working hard and to self-improvement.
I will believe in myself and the goals I set.
