Please help us welcome Catherine Hinz to her new role. Catherine has been a resident of Lexington-Hamline since 2018 and has lived in St. Paul for nearly 10 years. She is the founder and CEO of Beyond Words Co., a small business that designs and ships sympathy care packages to support others through grief and loss. Most recently, she served as the executive director of the Minnesota Alliance for Patient Safety, a non-profit dedicated to the safe delivery of health care. She has over 10 years of experience in patient safety leadership and medical error prevention, previously serving as Director of Patient Safety at the University of Minnesota Health as well as HealthEast Care System (both now M Health Fairview). Catherine has a Master of Healthcare Administration from the University of Minnesota and a BA in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. You’ll most likely see her and her school-age son out walking the blocks of Lexington-Hamline trying to wrangle their new energetic puppy.
