About Janine Khan

Janine’s professional journey spans over 25 years in office and administrative services, with an additional decade dedicated to property management. This wealth of experience and unwavering dedication is now channeled into her role as the new Office Administrator at the Business Development Board of Martin County, where she is poised to make a significant impact.

Janine’s academic journey is a testament to her unwavering commitment to learning and professional growth. Hailing from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, she embarked on her undergraduate studies at Temple University, majoring in Anthropology and Psychology. Despite having to pause her studies to become a caregiver, she later triumphed, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies from Thomas Edison State University. Her thirst for knowledge led her to obtain a certificate in Project Management from Villanova University, and she is currently pursuing an MBA.

She enjoys reading, writing, researching, cooking, and traveling in her spare time. My favorite destination so far is Sorrento, on the Amalfi Coast, Italy. She loves music of all kinds and is especially fond of live performances, visiting museums, and exploring new places, especially here in Florida.

Additionally, she volunteers as an advocate and marketing associate for, a non-profit organization. Making a difference in someone’s life is her ultimate goal, and she strives to achieve this through her volunteer work.

She is also a devoted paw-parent to several pets, who keep her both busy and covered in pet hair.
