St. Anthony's Senior Living

Introducing Jessie Mehl, St. Anthony’s New Director of Community Life

We are proud to introduce our new Director of Community Life, Jessie Mehl, and welcome her into the St. Anthony’s family!

A few words from Jessie:

“Growing up in the suburbs of Kansas City, I always knew I wanted to work with older adults.  After obtaining a Master’s degree in Social Gerontology, I looked for jobs where I felt like I could make a difference. My experience includes working as an activity director, a mental health case manager, a senior center director, and an executive director of a county-wide senior service organization.  I have also worked for other senior living communities in K.C. including John Knox Village and Lakeview Village.

I am excited to work at St. Anthony’s. I was attracted to this community because not only does St. Anthony’s seek to meet the physical needs of seniors, but they are addressing the spiritual needs as well. But, wait! There will be fun as well. Helping seniors live vibrantly with a sense of purpose, curiosity and joy is my mission.

I live in Roeland Park, KS with my husband Steve. My son, Charlie graduated this spring from MU. We enjoy time with our pets, researching our genealogy, going to farmer’s markets, and taking day trips. I am a die-hard Anglophile and enjoy all things British. When I don’t have a book in my hand you can probably find me eating cake.”
