She received her BA in English from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill., and her MHA from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago, Ill.
Between degrees, Reid worked in several industries as well as in academics. Her background gives her a wide range of experiences to draw upon in her current role, including accreditation processes, budgeting, forecasting and space management.
