Janine Snell (2019)

Janine is a third generation resident who has lived in Pender Harbour almost her entire life. She spent six years in Vancouver obtaining an education in counselling with a focus on family and community, and volunteering with multiple community based non-profit organizations. After experiencing city living for long enough, she recently moved back home with even more appreciation for her hometown!

Janine grew up swimming, fishing, boating and benefiting from all that Pender Harbour has to offer, and she is dedicated to the conservation of this oceanside community and its long-term sustainability. Seeing all that the Lagoon Society has already brought to the community and the potential for the PODS project, she was motivated to join the board and to combine her deep love of this place with her passion for the promoting the protection of the environment.
