President and CEO
Gini Toyne has been a professional nurse for 36 years, 28 of which have been working with individuals with work-related injuries. Her nursing specialties include trauma, orthopedics, and disability management. She is licensed as a registered nurse in Missouri and Kansas as well as 23 other states through the “Nurse Compact Act”.

Gini has also been certified by the Work Loss Data Institute as a Certified ODG Case Manager.
Gini enjoyed her clinical nursing for 10 years at North Kansas City Hospital working primarily in the Emergency Department. She began her Nurse Case Management career in 1986. Gini became an entrepreneur developing her own independent workers’ compensation case management company in 1989 with her major focus being her work with the safety and workers’ compensation coordinators from various local, regional and multi-state employers and municipalities. This allowed her and the nurse case managers who work with her to access the injured worker at the time of injury or very soon thereafter in many cases to begin the coordination of care in a manner that resulted in better outcomes and return to employment as part of the employers’ most valuable assets.
She is a recognized leader in the areas of small business and entrepreneurial spirit, having been named one of the 25 Under 25 best employers in Kansas City, received 3 consecutive nominations for the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, “Mr. K” Small Business Award and was named by the Kansas City Business Journal as one of the top 25 “Women Who Mean Business” in Kansas City.
