About Tom

I bring a superb mixture of personal, corporate, and spiritual experience and expertise to both personal and business coaching.

I began my corporate experience with a rewarding career at Commonwealth Edison, lasting over three decades. During that time I worked my way up from Meter Reader to Superintendent of Dispatch Operations. During that time, I held responsibilities that honed my leadership and business skills, including, but not limited to:

  • Self directed operation of high-voltage and ultra-high voltage field equipment
  • Working cooperatively, directing field crews in the testing and repair of high-voltage electrical equipment
  • Direct supervision of anywhere from six to twentyfour employees
  • Functional control of 1,500 square miles of field personnel engaging in storm restoration, maintenance, and repair activities
  • Creation and direct supervision of the twenty-four member, Dispatch Operations Engineering Assistants Group
  • Active leader/contributor to a range of high priority projects:
    • $29,000,000 O'Hare Airport Electrical Rehabilitation Project
    • Dispatch Operations Reorganization Committee
    • Storm Response Committee
    • Operations Dispatch Re-engineering Team
    • Customer Operations Emergency Response Committee
    • Direct oversight of budgets up to $4,000,000

Following my early retirement from ComEd, I pursued my dream of entering the ministry. For fourteen years, starting in 2002, I served as the spiritual leader of what was once called Unity Church of Crystal Lake, more recently Unity Spiritual Center of Woodstock. During my tenure, in addition to traditional ministerial responsibilities of speaking, spiritual counseling, weddings, christenings, board meetings, and the like, I also:

  • Facilitated multi-week classes and workshops in subjects ranging from forgiveness, prosperity, prayer, personal and spiritual growth, and more.
  • Partnered with our 100-member congregation to move from a rented facility to purchase our own building
  • Partnered with a professional consultant in the associated capital campaign project, raising $225,000 from December of 2008 to November of 2011
  • Moved the congregation to their new facility, Unity Spiritual Center of Woodstock, in November of 2011

I retired from ministry in January of 2016 to pursue full-time life-coaching and inspirational speaking, with a focus on personal growth and development.

In 2013, while still engaged in ministry, I became certified as a DreamBuilder Coach by Mary Morrissey's Life Mastery Institute, subsequently attending accelerator training in 2014.

Since then, I have helped scores of individuals make important life decisions, live the life of their dreams, as well as guiding and coaching individuals in making prosperous business decisions.
