Janet W. Sisler

Janet W. Sisler, Mundelein College '74 and '82, began her career in education at Mother Guerin High School, and then moved to the Office of Catholic Schools.  Currently, she works for the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago, where she is the Executive Director of the Madonna Foundation.  She is also the President of the Franciscan Community Benefit Services, through which she coordinates charitable work for women, children, and the elderly.

In the early days of the Madonna Foundation, Jan worked to engage the Gannon Scholars in collaborating on a leadership retreat for the Madonna Scholars.  The Gannon Scholars have led retreats for the Madonna Scholars for the last four years and the two groups have recently developed long-term mentoring relationships.  Jan also supports the Gannon Center as a member of the Mundelein Alumni Advisory Board and the Gannon Center’s Spirit of Mundelein Club.
