Tom was born and raised in Edwardsville, IL, where most of his family still live. He played just about every sport growing up as a child, but basketball and golf were the two that really caught his interest in high school. Tom was then fortunate enough to receive an athletic scholarship to play Division 1 golf at Eastern Illinois University.
Upon graduating, Tom immediately stepped into the financial services industry and then worked for Slagle Financial, LLC in Edwardsville, IL for 6 years. He specializes in Holistic Financial Planning, helping families reach their true peace of mind in retirement. He lives his life motto by a quality that his mother instilled in him, “treat others the way you want to be treated”.
Tom spends his free time staying active, playing golf, as well as setting up numerous golf outings and charity events. He also enjoys spending his free time with his girlfriend Cate and her yellow lab, Lute.
