Nurse Reese began her career in nursing in 2004. She started out working as an HHA for several months while attending University to finish her Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Later in 2010, after life changing events, Nurse Reese decided to go back to school for three months to become a CNA. While in CNA school, the instructor spoke life into Nurse Reese and reminder her that she was highly intelligent and should go back to school to become a registered nurse. Nurse Reese knew that she science wasn't one of her best subjects and didn't see how she would be successful in nursing school. However, she didn't let her doubts or fear of failure stop her. One year later, Nurse Reese took a leap of faith and took an entrance exam for practical nursing school. In 2011, Nurse Reese passed the PN entrance exam and enrolled in Vocational Education and Extension Board for Practical Nursing (VEEB). She figured if she could pass PN school then she would continue on further to pursue an RN degree. And, she did just that.
In 2016, after working three years in nursing homes, hospitals, and home care Nurse Reese began working as a community health nurse for a preventative service agency in Brooklyn, NY. This was a completely different field of nursing than what she was used to. As a community health nurse or nurse care manager, Nurse Reese monitored the medical compliance of families with children that were medically fragile or had developmental disabilities.
