Tom is regularly interviewed for his perspective by periodicals such as the Wall Street JournalThe Washington PostInvestment News, and The New York Times, and he regularly educates financial professionals, attorneys, tax professionals and geriatric care managers on the most appropriate financial planning techniques for families facing long term care decisions. Tom has been nationally published numerous times in peer-reviewed professional journals on topics such as ‘Communication with Clients under Stress’, ‘A Fiduciary Approach for Clients Who Need Long Term Services and Supports’ and ‘Appropriate Investment Strategies During a Period of Care’.

Tom’s community service in the aging and disability area has earned him recognition from a variety of non-profits and local government groups. He is currently the Vice Chair of Goodwin House Inc,  a leading non-profit LifePlan Community in Virginia.  He has previously served in leadership positions on the boards of Insight Memory Care Center and the National Capital Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
