"Kei te harikoa ahau ki te eke ki tenei mahi hou hei Roia Whakahaere mo te tari Peoria/Galesburg o Prairie State Legal Services," ko ta Thomas. “Kei te whakapau kaha ahau ki te whakarato ratonga ture tino kounga mo o taatau kiritaki me te whakautu ki nga hiahia motuhake o to tatou hapori. Kei te anga whakamua ahau ki te whakapakari ake i to taatau hononga ki te hapori i te mea e whakarite ana matou i te urunga orite ki te whakawa me te whakahaere tika i raro i te ture."

“E tino koa ana ahau ki te manaaki i a Thomas ki tenei mahi hou,” i kii a Denise E. Conklin, Kaiwhakahaere Matua o Prairie State Legal Services. "Kei a Thomas he huinga o nga ahuatanga tino nui tae atu ki te whakatau pai, te kaha ki te mahi ahakoa he uaua, me te taurite o te aroha me te whakatau. Kei te whai hua tonu to tatou hapori mai i tana kaihautu me ana tohungatanga, a e whakahīhī ana mātou ki te whakanui i tana mahi hou.”

I uru atu a Thomas ki Prairie State Legal Services i te tau 2013 hei Roia Kaimahi. I muri i nga tau e toru o tana mahi me te kawanatanga o Prairie, ka uru atu ia ki te Tari Roia a te Kaute o Tazewell hei Roia Awhina mo te Kawanatanga. I hoki mai a Thomas ki te whenua o Prairie i te tau 2017 i aro atu ai ia ki nga mahi painga mo te iwi, ina koa nga take Hauatanga Hauora me nga take matauranga. Mo nga tau e rua kua pahure ake nei, kua mahi a Thomas hei Roia Tiaki i te tari o Peoria/Galesburg.

Ka whakaaetia a Thomas ki te mahi ture i te State of Illinois me te Kooti Takiwa o Amerika mo te Takiwa o te takiwa o Illinois. I whiwhi ia i tana JD mai i te Whare Wananga o Arizona College of Law, me tana BS mai i te Whare Wananga o Arizona State.
