Biography Janine is a Hudson-certified Executive Coach, a certified EQ Mentor, ICF-ACC certified, as well as being trained by and a Partner with Evolution. Coaching is her third, and final career. She started off in Engineering, as a tech consultant with Accenture, went on to lead all technology for the North American offices of a global advertising agency, TBWA Chiat/Day, and then led all non-legacy engineering efforts at DirecTV. Next up, she founded and exited a tech & product recruiting agency focused on So Cal startups. As her career progressed, she started to coach and mentor Founders & Executives, and found her place in the world.

She sits on the board of Women Founders Network and Target Zero, and has taught entrepreneurism in prison. She’s a mentor for Techstars LA and Stubbs Alderton’s Precellerator. She Co-Founded Women in the Tech Part of Tech, a group of female startup tech execs with a mission to increase our voice and mentor the next gen.

Areas of focus in coaching:
• Core Values as a mechanism to drive clarity in decision making
• Co-Founder dynamics/communication breakdowns
• Scaling up a team & organizational structure
• Leading when you deal with anxiety
• CTOs/Engineering Organization & Team Dynamics
• Women Executives & Founders (but I love working with men too :))
• Integration of core values/culture into operations, processes and systems, especially in the realm of People Operations
• Transition Coaching

List of clients she’s worked with in her various career incarnations: Riot Games, BeachBody, NBC/Universal, Oblong Industries, Warner Bros, Evite, HUM Nutrition, The Apparel Network, Avisare, CBRE, TechStyle, Califia Farms, BeautyCounter, Dave.com, Evolve Media, Cast & Crew, Heal.com, DirecTV and many others.

Experience I coach primarily startup Founders and Executives, as well as doing coaching engagements surrounding the establishment of culture, and its integration into core processes - Recruiting, Interviewing for Culture Fit/Culture Add, Onboarding, Feedback Mechanisms, etc. I'm a Mentor for Techstars LA and the Stubbs Alderton Precellerator, as well as being on the Board of Directors of Women Founders Network, a virtual accelerator for Female Founders. I've also done a significant amount of pro bono deep dive and business coaching for incarcerated individuals. Given my background in recruiting, I've done quite a bit of transition coaching as well.
  • Entrepreneurs / Small Businesses
Hobbies & Interests
Hobbies & Interests Leveling the playing field is a big driver for me, as well as animal welfare (in addition to the above, I'm on the Board of Target Zero, which gets Fellow cities to zero kill through mentoring best practices). I love to be outdoors, and consider nature one of my biggest allies.
Current Projects
Current Projects 1. Revamping a client's entire Talent Aquisition process to address D&I and Culture Add/Culture Fit as main components, including providing Leadership Coaching to the T.A. Execs. 2. Executive Coaching a Founder who has had great success as an entrepreneur, and can get funding from VCs easily, but he really needs to tighten up his ability to hire the right people and then lead them in a balanced way. 3. Executive Coaching a Founder that has to transition to being a CEO. His company has been in business over 6 years, and like many (all) Founders, he's hitting a burnout wall, and needs to re-energize, and shift his leadership to meet the company at its current stage.
