As a style editor for the Today show, Bobbie Thomas has a unique background that not many would guess. She didn’t start as a fashion pro. Instead, she spent the first three years of her career as a rape crisis counselor.
Today, Thomas uses this experience to encourage women and build their confidence through clothing.
How Bobbie Thomas's Career Launched
The beginning of Thomas's career actually started in a psychology classroom. “I wanted to take the earlier part of my career that had to do with learning about human behavior and helping people who felt overwhelmed in their situation,” said Thomas.
“You can get out of an abusive relationship. You can be a survivor in more ways than one. That connects so much to the layers we put on.”
As women, we communicate through what we wear. And, when we feel bad, we want to reach out and talk something through. "Often times what we wear is how we go about that," Bobbie adds. She considers herself a "professional girlfriend" because she wants women to feel her support and encouragement for feeling confident.
