Courtney Cushing Kiernat, Co-Chair
Courtney is Chair of the Hennepin Healthcare Foundation Board of Directors. Her commitment to Hennepin Healthcare was ignited when her son was hit by a car and received life-saving care at HCMC. Courtney is the first Executive Director of Peris Housing, a new affordable housing project in Minneapolis, slated to open Summer 2021, which includes units for youth aging out of foster care. Prior to Peris, Courtney was Senior Program Director at the Pohlad Family Foundation.
In addition to family philanthropy, Courtney has experience with resource development, public education, community engagement, public policy, and partnerships. Courtney considers herself a generalist who knows enough to be dangerous but whose value is getting the right people at the table to get important work done.
Courtney grew-up in Minneapolis and Karachi, Pakistan, and now lives in Minneapolis with her husband and their four dogs, who keep her busy now that her two children are in college. In her free time, she enjoys serving on nonprofit boards, volunteering as a therapy team with one of her dogs, gardening, and photography.
Carrie Bachman has a passion for attachment theory and the power it has to affect positive change in intimate family relationships and across multiple barriers to healing. She has worked to cultivate coast to coast relationships with individuals who endeavor to strengthen families.
