Board of Advisors

Tom discovered Hives for Heroes through a personal connection and close friend who found HFH in his own research while working through PTSD related issues.

Tom was born in North Dakota, but has lived in Texas for sixty years. Tom and his wife have five children and eight grandchildren. They also have three beloved dogs and a fourth “long-term visitor shelter dog.” They have a ranch with world-class axis deer along with other native species and is home to a multi-hive bee complex housed in caves in a limestone rock face on the property!

Tom takes great pride in assisting those who have served our country and honors their service in many facets of his life, including servicing Hives for Heroes.

Tom is one of the founding partners of Reimer McGuinness Hess, P.C., a CPA firm in Houston. He is a University of Houston graduate. He works closely with businesses and non-profit organizations.

Tom is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants and National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts and is an advisory board member of several Veteran assistance organizations; Combat Marine Outdoors (an entity assisting disabled servicemen and women in getting back into the outdoors to hunt, fish and network) and most recently Hives For Heroes.

In his spare time (if that’s even possible!), Tom enjoys time with family, ranching, hunting, fishing, reading, and wine tasting.

We know two things; Tom is incredible and we are BEYOND GRATEFUL that he is part of the Hives for Heroes organization!
