Janie B

Janie has been involved with Special Olympics for more than 20 years and is a team manager and coach for multiple sports, in addition to being a coach/director for the California Eagles Golf Program. She began volunteering for Special Olympics after retiring, which led her to a new career serving the disability community. Janie admires her athletes, students and clients with disabilities. “Everyone could take a lesson from them and treat others as they do: without prejudice, without judgement, without jealousy, quick to forgive and to express joy in their friends’ accomplishments and wins. What an awesome world this would be!”


Janie on going to the USA Games:

“Getting selected for the Games that one of my golfers is competing in is just the best. I can’t wait to see him and all his teammates share the experience, have fun, show what they can do, and ‘shine as one.’”
