Thomas grew up in Raleigh and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in political science, in 2008. At the time, he planned to attend law school. But after a summer job as a runner in a local law firm, he decided to pursue other interests. All the while, his future wife continued with her own law school plans. While she studied contracts and torts, Thomas spent the next few years teaching high school in Durham which he describes as a time when he waited for inspiration to strike. In 2012, he relocated to his wife’s hometown of Birmingham, AL, as she started a new job. It was during this time that Thomas discovered he wanted to be a doctor. After four years in medical school at the University of South Alabama, he is glad to be able to return to the place where he started.
