Born and raised in Jupiter, Florida, Tom Copeland is a marketer, youth advocacy volunteer, and Lake Worth resident since 2009. Tom met his wife, Tracie, at Brogues DownUnder that same year. They bought their first home together in South Palm Park in 2014.
Tom has served on multiple non-profit boards for over a decade. He’s volunteered hundreds of hours and generously supported organizations over the years that include Urban Youth Impact and Junior Achievement.
From 2013 – 2015, he served on the Sustainability Advisory Board for the City of West Palm Beach, appointed by Mayor Jeri Muoio. Following completion of his two-year term, he shifted his focus to Lake Worth, serving most recently as the Chairman of the Finance Advisory Board for the City of Lake Worth.
In 2015, he and close friend Ricky Aiken founded Inner City Innovators, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on ending gun violence in the most violent gang-afflicted corridors of West Palm through mentorship and empowerment programs for youth 14-24 years old.
Tom graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. When he’s not working or campaigning, you’ll find him bouncing around in downtown Lake Worth, at the beach, or on a kayak in the intracoastal!
