Tom is CEO of Handicare, which provides solutions that help increase independence and are easy and safe to use for both healthcare professionals and family members. He previously served as Senior Vice President of Sales with Permobil. Shortly after earning a B.S. degree in Petroleum Engineering from Montana Tech, Tom's brother suffered a C6-7 spinal cord injury in a logging accident, and in a strange twist of fate, his career path turned away from the oil industry and into the complex rehab industry. That was in 1986, and he has been a patient advocate and part of this industry ever since. Tom was RESNA certified ATP in 2005 and served several years on the board of NCART. He actively supports the local Walk to Defeat ALS, was one of the founding members of Users First, and is on the board of the Nashville Golf Classic, which supports the Special Olympics.
