Nominee Pictures and Bios

Ann Reed


Professionally, I have a background in leadership as the CEO (publisher) for three newspaper organizations and have served as a Director of Human Resources.  All of these roles required strong communication, administration, organizational, marketing, and problem-solving skills.  In almost all of my roles, I was responsible for growing revenues, a skill that I feel could benefit Unity of TC.  I have been a member of several boards including Goodwill, Honor Flight, Chamber of Commerce, Humane Society, and others.  I am currently an active Unity volunteer serving as a Worship assistant, on the Spiritual Enrichment and Education Team (SEE), usher/greeter, and fellowship.  I feel my personal values are very much in alignment with our vision, mission, and principles.

Why now....

The timing feels right for me, and I believe that I've demonstrated my commitment to UTC through my engagement as a volunteer and congregant.  I also believe that my professional experience will be a benefit to UTC.  And, I'm VERY excited about this possibility.

I came to Unity of Traverse City when I was hired as the Office and Programs Coordinator, in January 2020. I had not grown up in a religious home or ever considered joining a church, but have always been a spiritual person; open to many paths, but resistant to organized religion. I was interested that my new job provided a spiritual outlet, enjoying Sunday lessons that spoke to me, and also participating in the music team, which I have loved being a part of.

I immediately felt accepted by the congregation and supported by this family. I joined Unity of Traverse City, as a member, after a few months. I returned to my previous job after 10 months, but have remained an enthusiastic member. I feel that I was divinely guided to the job opening so that I could find this community. 

I am a wife and mother of three beautiful girls.. Professionally, I am a veterinary assistant and am currently in a degree program to become a licensed veterinary technician. I began this career over 20 years ago, and am passionate about my love of both animals and learning! Spiritually, my personal practice has focused on leading women’s spirituality groups, sharing about divine femininity, and holding sacred space for empowered sharing and ritual.  

After my first two years as a member of the Board of Trustees, I continue to see incredible potential for growth. We can further our vision for what we want to become and accomplish moving forward. As we continue to evolve spiritually, I believe all will come together in divine timing.  I am excited by the opportunity to again help support and give back to UTC as a member of the Board of Trustees.
