What I Will Be Doing
While in Puerto Rico we will be working to assist in hurricane relief efforts with both health care and construction crews. Potential construction projects while in the country include solar panel installation at clinics, provision of medical services at a shelter, and demolition at a clinic or housing.
A Little About Tom Rippeto
While I have spent most of my professional career as an IT administrator for various healthcare organizations, the work I have done "on the side" owning and operating restaurants has been my true passion. This includes rehabbing buildings, planning, and executing businesses. In addition, I have stayed active and fit my entire adult life with tennis, woodworking, and operating a small farm. I read a lot of history and stay up on current affairs. I am especially interested in trying to make a difference in the world where I can use my experience and construction skills.
