This week’s Employee Spotlight is Tom Zinschlag. Tom has been voted by his peers as a true leader here at Blue and we are going to get to know him a little better. He studied at UNL and got a degree in Sociology and Psychology, as well as a Master’s in Sociology from Roosevelt University. Tom worked for five years in the Mental Health field before finding his way to Blue, looking for a place that offered more growth and advancement. He says that the most important thing he has learned since his start here is patience. “The training program at Blue promotes personal development and it’s something I try working on in my personal life as well.”
On a lighter note, I asked Tom if he could have any super power at all, what would it be and why and his response was pretty good: “Super human strength! Like the Hulk. I always liked the Hulk’s character as a kid because he was a scientist that pushed the boundaries of science so far that he turned into a super hero. “
