Brittney Reid has lived in Central Indiana her whole life, spending 20+ years on the Southside of Indianapolis. She spends her spare time with her husband and two children in rural Greenfield. In 2016, Brittney graduated from IUPUI with a degree in Interdisciplinary Classics and Museum Studies. Her first job out of college was a Program Assistant for a large healthcare technology firm, where she fell in love with the elements of the administrative field. As a self-proclaimed “forever student,” Brittney was drawn to a field where she had to start from scratch and learn from the beginning: Wastewater Management. She joined IPW as the Office Administrator in January 2022, and serves as the point of contact for all office operations. A lesser-known fact about Brittney is that she put herself through college as a Dog Groomer, cutting and styling hair for the community’s four-legged, furry friends.
Brittney thrives on her nostalgia for childhood hobbies and interests. You’ll never find a more devoted Harry Potter fan than Brittney.
