Reese is a nationally certified fitness instructor, published journalist and former fitness columnist. Her interest in the wellness realm began in high school, after reaching her heaviest weight and lowest self-esteem. She began self-educating herself in proper nutrition and exercise and pursuing a gradual lifestyle change that helped her not just lose the weight, but also begin feeling good in her body for the first time. Her passion for health and desire to help other people in their fitness journeys continued to grow when she became a Zumba instructor in 2010, going on to secure training in yoga, Pilates and a variety of freestyle exercise classes through her national certification through AFAA.
Reese currently lives in South Carolina with her husband and love of her life, Jeremy, who shares her enthusiasm for health and fitness as a local Crossfit Coach.
