Whether she’s at tennis practice, hitting the gym, or at work, she is always making sure that she is doing something she loves. Reese has been playing tennis since the 6th grade, which prepared her for varsity in both her freshman and sophomore years. Reese is a kind-hearted soul that loves working with animals, which is why she works at a kennel. She also has two dogs that she cares for. “My mom tells me I should be a vet, but I want to be a sports broadcaster instead, " Reese explained when asked about her dream job. She wants to one day be able to be a sports broadcaster for football and basketball games. When asked if her younger self would be proud of where she is today, Reese said, “Yes. But she’d also ask where did my pink motor scooter go?”
