Welcome our new Advocacy Chairperson

Thomas Hacku, OTR

Tom is an Occupational Therapist who graduated from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT in 2013.  After acquiring experience in acute rehab, Tom decided to expand his clinical skills with hand and upper extremity injuries while taking a travel therapy position in the San Francisco Bay Area.  A six-month contract quickly turned into a nearly three-year journey as an outpatient therapist, educating students and advocating for OT along the way.  Upon moving to Texas in 2017, Tom continued to pursue hand therapy at Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital’s outpatient department in south Dallas. He became involved with TSHT after volunteering at the annual conference in 2019, thanks to one of his peers and fellow TSHT member. Tom looks forward to expanding his involvement with TSHT as Advocacy Committee chairperson. He currently resides in Richardson, TX with his wife Cameron and spends his free time working on home improvement projects and traveling.

Congratulations to all our 2019 awardees!!
