He is also the President of the School Advisory Council for Hawks Rise Elementary School and serves on the Agent Advisory Board for The Florida Region for Allstate. Tom is an avid sports fan who loves football and basketball. He is proud of his amazing team of agents in both offices.

Lauren being a mother to four wonderful children (Gavin, Case, Callie, and Pierce) keeps her running all over Tallahassee.
