Anna Thomas

Outreach Manager

As the Outreach Manager of the largest consumer direct service facilitation company in Virginia, I’m passionate about enabling our company to grow. Our growth means that more families across the state are learning about Virginia Medicaid Waivers and gaining the resources they provide.

My passion for marketing started in high school with my first retail job. My senior year while enrolled in a business class I was able to work as part of my credits towards that class. I enjoyed being able to create the store displays! My passion and leadership skills showed and I was soon promoted to associate manager where I was able to learn more about the direct impact those displays had on our sales.

When I met my husband and got married in 2008 I relocated to the Shenandoah Valley. Looking for great opportunities in the valley led me to over 3 years of teaching, 6 years of Medical Office Management, and 3 years of Low Income Housing Property Management (LIHTC and RD).

During the pandemic, I had a bad scare with COVID and felt the pull back into the medical field working with great organizations like Carilion and UVA. While working at UVA I was not looking for a job change but a close friend told me about a position to work from home and market for a company called Moms In Motion. I quickly fell in love with the story behind this company and what they do for disabled individuals across the state.

I started with Moms In Motion in March 2022 and have never regretted the decision to take a dive into the unknown to join their team! I am happy to say that each day my team and I work hard to spread Answers, Help, and Hope to so many! I think back to myself in high school so many years ago when I would tell family members that one day I want to create a billboard. While I haven’t created one yet, I have no doubt that vision has come to fruition with my current position as the Outreach Manager.
