Experience
Tom got his “foot in the door” of the veterinary field by volunteering for Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in 1979. He then worked for two years at the Humane Society in the spay and neuter clinic. He worked at United Emergency Animal Clinic between 1982-1994, and Central Animal Hospital from 1992-1994. Tom began his career here at LGD&C in 1996, and he feels more at home here than anywhere he has ever worked. He spent three emotionally trying years working for Fawn Rescue and Rehabilitation in Santa Clara County.

Personal Information
