Laura Reed, a Chicago native, joined Reside Living in 2010 as a Leasing Specialist. Soon after, she was promoted to Assistant Property Manager and Property Manager at our Reside on Barry and Reside on Wellington properties. Laura is a proud University of Purdue graduate (Go Boilers!) who won’t hesitate to share her team spirit. That team spirit truly shines when it comes to Laura’s passion for the Chicago Cubs. If there’s a home game, you can catch Laura and her husband, Aaron, at Wrigley Field decked out in their finest Cub’s gear, cold brew and Chicago dog in hand. Aside from her beloved Cubbies, Laura loves to travel, watch TV and spend time with her family. On a weeknight, you will often find her at home cooking a lovely meal with her husband… unless the Cubs have a game that night.
Carly comes to the corporate office with over 7 years of experience in property management. Carly led the most successful lease-up in Chicago’s Class A developments in the past 10 years - Reside’s State & Chestnut in the Gold Coast. Through that busy time, she somehow managed to get married to her best friend, Chris, and continue her volunteer tutoring for Chicago Lights Tutoring. For a woman without any pets, she is mildly obsessed with puppies. She also loves her University of South Carolina Gamecocks football. If you have a sweet tooth, you can guarantee that Carly has some gummy bears in her desk drawer, purse and car to share with you.
Lauren is the new Athletic Director for Reside Living. She is a "jack-of-all-trades" when it comes to food and fitness. She joins us after more than two years as a manager at lululemon athletica, where she worked extensively on the brand’s community impact in Chicago. She is also a NASM-certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor and freelance writer. When she isn’t teaching or writing, you’ll probably find her out exploring new Chicago neighborhoods and looking for the latest food craze to snap a photo of on her phone.
Nada may have operations in her title, but she has been critical at every stage in Reside Living’s growth. Hard to believe she has over 20 years of experience in property management and development! She oversees risk management, technology migration, lends a hand in marketing and even human resources. Nada embodies team. And she is a huge Chicago Blackhawks fan, eh.
Katrina is a native born Miamian who chose, of her own accord, to make Chicago her home (she hates tropical climate and prefers the arctic Midwest temps). After graduating from The University of Miami with an Advertising and Marketing Degree, she spent time working on the brand development and event execution side of the field. Katrina has been a Reside resident since 2010 and was then brought on as a Leasing Specialist back in 2013. She has now joined the corporate team where she will combine her knowledge of marketing and the Chicago residential market to keep Reside Living at the forefront. On her free time, Katrina likes to eat… a lot. All things food and culinary interest her with the exception of cooking (she is actually terrible in the kitchen). On her free time she designs music playlists and curates social media sites for some of the hippest restaurants in town.
Mindy has over 15 years of experience in property management. She has a hands on approach when it comes to her team, helping to mentor and develop managers and leasing agents into rock stars. Mindy's work ethic is top notch while always striving to stay ahead of industry trends. When she is not being a Regional Manager with great bangs that somehow always remain perfectly symmetric, she is traveling, taking photography classes and hanging out with her dog (Leo).

He is also an avid fan of the Chicago sports teams, except of course the Cubs.
