Albert Thomas

Albert is a South Carolina Native and grew up in Columbia, South Carolina. His family owned a nursing home in Hopkins, South Carolina. At an early age, some of his best friends were residents of the family-owned business. It was there that he discovered his passion to care for the aging population.



Albert attended the University of South Carolina, where he earned an Associate of Science degree with a focus on health care management. In 1996, he moved to Florida and established his career in nursing homes, working as the director of business operations until he moved back home to Columbia in 2007. Before joining The Blake, Albert worked for Blue Cross & Blue Shield of South Carolina’s over-65 insurance department and Palmetto Health.

In his free time, Albert enjoys volunteering with Leeza’s Care Connection, SC Pride, the LGBT community and local animal shelters. His other passion in life is American Saddlebred horses. Albert competed on a national level making it to the World Championship Horse Show in Louisville, Kentucky. While no longer in competition, he still enjoys an occasional trail ride for relaxation and tranquility. Albert’s greatest joy in life right now is his Boston terrier, Oliver.
