Chris Hineman

Executive Director

Chris Hineman joined the Solstice Senior Living team in July of 2017. He began as the executive director of Solstice Senior Living at Point Defiance in Tacoma, Washington, before transferring to Solstice Senior Living at Sandy in July of 2019. When Chris entered the senior living industry, he came to us with 20 years of experience as an educational administrator. Chris is passionate about his job and serving the residents and associates in his community, and he enjoys developing relationships and partnering with the residents and families to provide them with a happy and welcoming community. Seeing the residents active and enhancing their quality of life is what Chris loves. He is caring and full of humor, and his positive, can-do attitude is contagious. When he is not at work, Chris enjoys spending time with his family and friends and staying physically active.

Jill Vath

Director of Sales and Marketing

Jill Vath brings five years of senior industry experience to Solstice Senior Living at Sandy. Before her senior living career, she was passionately involved in education and helping others, as she is still doing today with residents and their families.

In her spare time, Jill enjoys being with her family and pets and exploring the beautiful mountains and landscape of Utah and surrounding states. Her hobbies include trail riding with her horse, hiking, gardening, canoeing, and going on other water or river adventures. She loves the beach, especially if it has the backdrop of the mountains. In particular, she loves the Lake Tahoe area.

Christopher Rodriguez

Maintenance Director

Christopher Rodriguez has been in the maintenance industry for over six years, but this is not where he began his career journey. Born in beautiful Southern California, Christopher attended Van Nuys High School before deciding to join Job Corps in the “Beehive State.” He knew Utah was the place he would start his own family. Christopher enjoyed working as a certified nursing assistant in South Salt Lake for eight years, and it was during that time that he also took on the role of maintenance assistant. He is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Solstice family!
