Angela Janic

Her story: What’s unique about Angela is that she started as the average pool player. Her natural talent for the game caught the eye of Viking and we quickly picked her up adding her to our ambassador team in 1997. Sadly, she had to give up her passion for the game in 1999 to focus on her family.   Dedicating what time she could while her kids where young, she worked her way up the corporate ladder while going back to college twice graduating with an associate degree in 2004 and her bachelors in 2015 at the age of 39. She is now a full-time employee for Grainger Industrial Supply in her 11th year. Being a single mom of two teenagers, she waited until her girls were old enough to support her dream of billiards and with their support and encouragement decided to give it a another try at the age of 42. Even though she’s had limited time to devote to the game, she achieved her life-long dream of making it to the WPBA and has risen through the ranks to earn the respect of many players and organizations throughout the sport. She is known for her exceptional fundamentals and shares her knowledge by giving lessons as often as she can. She works hard for women’s billiards as a newly elected board member for the WPBA and gives back to her sponsors as much as she can to help grow and promote the sport she loves. Angela is a true ambassador for the sport, and we are proud to have her as part of our team!
