#alumnispotlight Today’s Alumni Spotlight is highlighting MAJ Gina Thomas, who is currently serving in the 3d Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) as the Brigade S4 in El Paso, Texas. Take a look at her story below:
I attended UNM and AROTC 2004-2008. The college experience helped me build my professional skills that I still utilize today. My AROTC experience was phenomenal. Learning tactics, completing the Ranger Challenge, completing the Bataan Death March and running the game football from UNM to NMSU are some of the most memorable moments. I continue to have life long friends and mentors from that time that still push me in my professional goals today. UNM AROTC created a path for my future, both professionally and personally, that I will never forget.
I entered the Army as a Transportation Officer in 2008 once I completed my Psychology degree at UNM and transitioned into a Logistics Officer. Additionally, I received my Master of Social Work degree and worked in several Social Work jobs during my time in the military.
My advice is that building relationship skills is the key to success in any profession that you undertake. People won’t remember the work you did but they will remember the way you treated them.
