She holds a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree, with a minor in Gender Studies, from Rider University and a Master of Social Work degree from Howard University. She also has an MDIV from the Princeton Theological Seminary .
Ms. Thomas sits on the Board of the Mercer County Ex-Offender Reentry Partnership, where she serves on the State Legislative and Focus Group Sub-Committees. She also holds memberships with the National Association of Black Social Workers and the National Association of Commissions for Women.
