Tom joined our Team in Summer of 2023.

Tom was born and lived in San Francisco until he was 12 years old, and then moved to the beautiful coast of Pacifica. He is the youngest of 8 brothers and feels very blessed to have never known life without dogs. They were significant members of his family and from the moment he was old enough, he took on all aspects of their care needs…even after he was married with children he returned home to help care for all of his parents pets which included not only dogs, but birds as well.

In his own home with 3 children, they were gifted with 5 cats, turtles, frogs, and even a lizard. His love for animals and the rewards that come from that love have been a beautiful gift. He is beyond happy to join the Bay Area Pet Pals team and share his love of animals.

Growing up in a household of marathon runners, fitness has always been a way of life for him. He was a body builder and fitness instructor in his early 20’s, and in his 30’s through now, he has maintained his fitness goals while continuing to independently train others. Studying nutrition and helping individuals become the best version of themselves has been a gift to him.

It’s about creating a life that brings inner joy. This wonderful opportunity at Bay Area Pet Pals is allowing him to enhance his joy to new levels.
