A native of Westland, Michigan, Tom graduated from the University of Notre Dame in May 1979. Three months later, he moved to Portland, Oregon, for a year of volunteer service. He returned to Portland in March 1981 and has resided there since. Tom became executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon and Southwest Washington (RMHC Oregon) in February 1999 and has remained in the role for more than 15 years. Under his leadership, the organization has been recognized by Oregon Business as one of the state’s “Top 100 Nonprofits to Work For” each year since the survey was launched in 2009. His feature article “A Man’s Place: Scenes from the Life of a Father at Home,” which appeared in the Autumn 1988 University of Portland Magazine, was awarded a silver medal by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. His further reflections on fatherhood have been published in Parenting, The Oregonian, and Full-Time Dads.
