A Texas native, Reed attended Lake Forest College, north of Chicago, for two years. A summer in Grand Lake perpetuated a move to Winter Park. After two years fully submersed in the mountain lifestyle, she opted to finish her journalism undergrad at CSU. Degree in hand, she headed back up to the mountains to a variety of jobs. A few years in Stowe, Vermont solidified her love of Colorado. She headed back to eventually take a sales position with TV18 in Winter Park. This then brought her to her current position in Steamboat as Senior Advertising Sales Consultant and Host for Explore Steamboat TV18 in September of 2012. Reed is very active in Steamboat philanthropy. She is involved in the Steamboat Springs Free Concert Series, Impact 100, planning committee for the Y.E.S. Golf Tournament and she has been named Secretary for Steamboat’s Young Professionals Network advisory board.
