Thomas Zahler

I'm determined to blaze new paths in the fields of preventive healthcare entrepreneurship and the physical sciences. I have long track record of service to the greater good, and it has led me from public health/safety to education. These two fields have given me the rewards of serving something greater than myself.

Moving forward I intend to utilize analytical data mining, quantitative/qualitative research tools, and a forward thinking entrepreneurial spirit to break down barriers. I intend to create new systems, build unrealized partnerships, and strengthen my local community so that I can do the most good for the most people within the context of the global community.
