Reese is a native of Lexington, Kentucky. He has always had an admiration for Exercise and Athletics as a kid. Reese was awarded a Division 1 football scholarship to Western Kentucky University. In College, Reese began experimenting with drugs and alcohol, eventually becoming addicted to prescription pills and later progressing to heroin. Reese admitted to the Reprieve after years of trying to control his addiction with little hope. Reese graduated from the Reprieve and felt a calling to become a part of our Core staff to help guide residents to the same spiritual awakening that he received while walking through The Reprieve’s 12-step process. Reese utilizes his extensive knowledge and skills in health and fitness to merge the importance of healthy living and exercise with the spiritual process of the 12 steps. Reese brings a positive energy and outlook in everything he does here at The Reprieve and is a fundamental member of everything we do.
