Aside from overseeing the maintenance team and the work request distribution, much of Tom’s role is behind the scenes with ensuring the facility operates from the inside out from a critical infrastructure standpoint. “Transferring to this facility on campus has been a ride in the fast lane,” he says. “The array of different systems and broad scope of various types of work poses a new opportunity every day, and I mean every day!” One thing Tom really enjoys outside of work is landscaping. “As spring approaches, I am itching to jump on a shovel and fill my boots with dirt,” says Tom. “I take great pride and interest in making my yard appealing, some (self-rated) would even drift to say it is the most manicured yard on the block.”
