As a journalist who is passionate about making a difference, Thomas is fulfilling her goal.

She unearthed new leads, conducted exclusive interviews, and learned new details about the case as a result of her work on the series. The series also served to raise awareness about missing women of color and how rarely their tales are reported in the media. Thomas also made a nationwide appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show” and was interviewed by local and national media about the show.
Thomas decided to continue her work to assist families in spreading the news about their lost loved ones after concluding the investigative series.

She covered the 2014 unrest in Ferguson, Missouri after police were engaged in the shooting murder of Michael Brown while in St. Louis. From beginning to conclusion, the dedicated journalist chronicled the events closely on a daily basis. During one of the most severe nights of rioting that spurred protests around the country, she even anchored for more than 8 hours overnight, bringing minute-by-minute events to the audience. Also, she covered major flooding in the region, as well as American Idol in Los Angeles.
Thomas also came on “The Doctors” to tell the world about how she lost her 34-year-old brother Terran Hubbard to melanoma skin cancer and how it affects people of color in order to raise awareness about the disease and how it affects people of color.
