After teaching for twenty years in several elementary schools in the Los Angeles Archdiocese, Sr. Jean was assigned to the Education Department of Mundelein College where she served until the affiliation with Loyola University in 1991.

Since that time, Sr. Jean has been an academic advisor, campus minister on LSC and WTC, Chaplain to the men's basketball team and to Regis Hall residents.

She is responsible for the SMILE Program (Students Moving Into the Lives of Elderly), a partnership between Loyola students and residents of The Clare Retirement Facility.

Because Sr. Jean talks with students all day long, she is provided with great opportunities for having fun and developing relationships.
