Tom received his Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration from Auburn University. After graduation, he served as a Nursing Home Administrator and then began his lifelong career in the hospice and home health fields. In 1996, Tom founded his first home health care agency in Chattanooga, TN, which eventually sold to a large long-term care company. He continued with them as the VP of Home Health, managing the nationwide network of agencies as well as acquiring new agencies and performing startups. In 2000, Tom founded Guardian Home Care and Hospice which grew to a large network of offices in multi states. In 2010, he transitioned to Georgia Home Health and continues today as a partner and CEO. With the acquisition of Hearth Hospice in 2014, Tom has now realized both of his life long career goals. Home health care allows Tom and his team to assist patients with more short term health care needs return to full functionality. And with hospice they have the additional honor of loving and caring for patients
and their families during the end of life journey. Tom lives in Chattanooga with his wife, Monique and their three children.
