Aletha Ruth Thomas could have stopped at New York Fashion Week model when she listed the items on her resume.
But Aletha, who was a recent winner of Victoria Henley’s Magnifique Showcase, is much more than that.
Aletha is a general education teacher. She is an emergency medical technician. She is an animal control officer. She is the founder of Purple Paws.
And, to crown it off, she is Ms US Pageantry.
