Hi, I'm Thom Wilder. Welcome to my Web page. I was born in small-town Indiana and moved to the Chicago area following my graduation from Indiana University with a Major in journalism and a Minor in Latin American Studies. I worked his way up the Chicago journalism ladder, starting at a weekly newspaper and eventually writing for various Chicago daily publications.
From 1995 to 2010, I worked for Washington, D.C.-based international news organization BNA as a Chicago-based writer and analyst. While my journalism focused mostly on the health care industry and government regulations regarding health care, I also wrote on many other various segments of industry and government, including but not limited to the environment, taxes, antitrust and labor.
While at BNA, I received a Masters of Jurisprudence in Health Law from Loyola University Chicago. Currently, I am currently writing a book titled "Road to Paradise."
In my free time, I enjoy crossword puzzles, reading, hiking Europe and playing golf, a game I love but which doesn't always love me back.
