Anthony Thorne

Corrections Officer
Texas Department of Criminal Justice

Anthony earned his Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Brandman University in May 2018 and is currently pursuing his master’s degree in psychology. Born in Austin, Texas, he is the proud father of two children he’s now raising in his hometown. He grew up in Killeen and spent some time in Boston working in the music industry and attending the Berklee College of Music. During that time, he shifted into mental health work. After 5 years, he returned to Austin and decided to go back to school. It was clearly evident that it would not be easy working a full-time job with two children to support; however, upon completion of his 4-year degree, he has concluded that determination and endurance are essential to success. As a part of the PelotonU family, he’s grateful for the support and encouragement he received. He still has many goals and endeavors that have yet to have been met, and hopes to tackles the imperfections in our justice system as well as our public and government institutions.
