In previous lives, she worked as a web journalist and social media strategist at Village Voice Media, the Los Angeles Times and USC Annenberg's Online Journalism Review.

Janine holds a L.A. Press Club award for blog editing and a Society of Professional Journalists award for feature writing. She was named a "rising star" in media for 2013 by magazine trade pub Min.
