Laura Jennison Reed, Assistant to the Dean
A June 2012 graduate of the Disciples Divinity House and the University of Chicago, Laura Jennison Reed provides support and leadership for development, public relations, and recruitment at the Disciples Divinity House. She works closely with the dean, alumni/ae, friends, trustees, and the Alumni/ae Council in those efforts. Her current leadership extends and expands work she did last year on a part-time basis as her ministry fieldwork. She began full-time service in July 2012 and will continue through the 2013 General Assembly.
“I’m excited to have an opportunity to work with other alums, friends, and current students to enhance and build relationships and, as a recent graduate, to be able to give back to the House that has become so important to me.”
A current member of the Administrative Committee and General Board of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), she has given leadership in the local, regional, and general church. Ms. Jennison Reed was ordained in her home congregation, North Hill Christian Church in Spokane, Washington. She is a 2005 cum laude graduate of Mount Holyoke College, where she received the Chapin Prize for exceptional achievement in the study of religion and was a leader in the ecumenical Protestant ministry, and she is former HELM Leadership Fellow. She is married to Joshua Reed.
