Who I Am

What’s Up! My name’s Thomas.

I’m a graduate of the University of Oklahoma Price College of Business and a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma College of Nursing.

In my nursing tenure, I’ve worked in multiple different areas of nursing, including a nursing leadership role. I am currently in a leadership role.

When I was in nursing school, I served as the treasurer for my school’s chapter of the Student Nurses Association. After I got out of nursing school, I served on the board as treasurer for Beta Delta-at-Large Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.

I’m a numbers guy, so I very much enjoy positions where I am dealing with a lot of numbers and data.

I currently reside in Oklahoma with my beautiful wife Andrea and our kids.  I enjoy spending my free time listening to finance and sports-related podcasts, running, playing tennis or basketball, and spending time with my friends and family.

What is Nurse Money Talk

If you’re not familiar with my YouTube channel make sure to check it out.

Nurse Money Talk is a career, lifestyle, and personal finance blog for nurses and nursing students.

One of the things you’ll notice is that I don’t really talk about medical-related topics. So, for example, I’ll probably never cover the signs or treatments of heart failure.

As important as those topics are (and they are important), that’s not going to be the focus of this site.

The topics I’ll talk about will be more lifestyle or career-focused. I want to talk about the things nurses are struggling with. Or the questions nursing students have that nobody is answering.

Here’s just a handful of the questions and problems I’m solving.
