The centrally located and well-appointed Clarendale Clayton will enter the senior living scene in Saint Louis as the only modern, high rise community in the area offering Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care.

The Clarendale Clayton team is being led by Ryan McHugh who brings more than 10 years of executive-level leadership experience in senior living management and operations to his role of Executive Director. McHugh is honored to be building a staff of individuals who will selflessly serve seniors in the Clarendale Clayton community. He is enthusiastic about heading up the operational aspects of a premier lifestyle community, but he’s most eager to be a part of the daily lives of Clarendale Clayton’s future residents.

“I’m inspired by residents and most enjoy visiting, sharing stories, having coffee or a meal together. After all, we will all be part of the same Clarendale Clayton family,” says McHugh. “My goal is to ensure that everyone who works in and calls this community home is safe, happy and healthy!”

Joining McHugh to help bring visibility to the unique offerings of this one-of-a-kind community, interact with surrounding neighborhoods and businesses, and assist seniors in the selection of their perfect apartment at Clarendale Clayton are Meredith Goette, Director of Sales and Marketing, Jen McMahon, Director of Community Relations, and Lynne Sugerman, Residency Counselor.

“I’m honored to be utilizing my expertise to support seniors who are embarking on an exciting new phase in their lives,” says Goette. “A nurturer at heart, I can’t wait to get to know our prospective residents—to hear their thoughts, needs and wants. My goals are to ensure we are champions of our residents’ stories and that we provide unparalleled service and convenience to all who enter our community.”

Recently accepting the role of Director of Community Relations, Jen McMahon brings 20 plus years of proven expertise in strategic communications representing a wide variety of industries, including pharmaceutical, agriculture, and healthcare.
