Dr. Reece has a diverse background in the pharmacy arena. She has held positions in community pharmacy, state pharmacy association, public health, primary care and diabetes education. During her time at PCOM, she has coordinated and taught in multiple pharmacy practice courses. Her passion for diabetes and caring for patients with diabetes has led to her area of clinical and research specialty—endocrinology, with a focus in diabetes. She actively mentors colleagues who are pursuing a practice focused in diabetes. She is a Certified Diabetes Educator, Board Certified Ambulatory Care Specialist and Board Certified in Advanced Diabetes Management who actively serves as a clinician and educator. She provides clinical services at Hall County Health Department and Northeast Georgia Physicians Group Family Medicine (Family Medicine Graduate Medical Education Program) in Gainesville, Georgia. She is a founding core faculty member of the Northeast Georgia Medical Center Family Medicine GME program.

In May 2015, Reece was appointed to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal's Commission on Medical Cannabis, a committee established to help set Georgia's policies on medical marijuana. In 2015, she was elected to a three-year term (2016-2019) on the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) Board of Directors. She currently serves as Treasurer of AADE.

Most recently, Dr. Reece developed a blog—Reece's Pieces in a Diabetes World—that offers practical information about medications for patients living with diabetes.
