Tom has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and a Master of Science Degree in Administrative Science from UW – Green Bay.  He no longer seeks certification in any field because he is self-employed as a business owner, and doesn't feel the need to put any more paper on the wall. “My certification comes from former clients and graduates who contribute to their communities. If we’re giving more than we are taking, our certification is by word-of-mouth, which is the only kind that matters.”
 
Tom has a wonderful wife named Theresa, who has brought him apple picking every Fall for 38 years.  They have three grown children and one grandchild. They all enjoy collaborative cooking, listening to and creating live music, and traveling to Pittsburgh every summer.  Tom plays blues harp and sings locally with the “The Tommy Lee Hall Blues Band,” which practices weekly among scores of antique bicycles and restored cars.
 
Tom enjoys fishing, line, ballroom and swing dancing, kick biking, reading, traveling, and underwater metal detecting.
