Meet Tom Thiegs, an Education and Development Specialist at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. Tom provides training, education, and team-building to employees on a variety of topics including leadership, productivity, and personal development.
1. What are some of your hobbies outside work?
I love spending time outdoors and camping, fishing, and bonfires are some of my favorite activities. I also love photography and travelling.
2. How long have you worked at Gillette? Do you have a favorite story or memory?
Next month (in May) will be my 3-year anniversary at Gillette. I knew Gillette was the right place for me shortly after joining the team when I conducted my first training session. The employees were so welcoming and kind. People buy into the special work that we do here at Gillette, and that’s one of the things I love most about working here.
3. Do you have any kids or pets?
I’ve got two fantastic children, a great little dog, and a wonderful wife! My daughter is 6-months old and my son is turning 3 this month. My daughter is a very giggly and happy baby and my son is a whirlwind of positive energy.
4. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
My dream vacation is to travel to one of the islands in French Polynesia, either Moorea or Bora Bora. They’ve got some amazing snorkeling and scuba diving in their lagoons and staying in one of those huts built over the water would be really fun!
5. What is your favorite food?
I have lots of favorite foods including pad Thai and a good omelet, but after a long winter I can’t get my mind off grilling. I love to grill all sorts of foods, but eating some slow-cooked BBQ ribs on the deck sounds pretty nice.
