2023 40 Under 40: Jessica Reed

Synergy Recovery Center LLC

Posted online

For Jessica Reed, professional leadership is all about attitude and leading by example.

As the residential supervisor at Synergy Recovery Center, which operates a 30-day inpatient treatment center in Rogersville for women battling addiction and mental health issues, Reed, 38, says her role is to provide hope and encouragement to clients.

A Synergy employee since 2015, Reed says she knows all about clients living in addiction. She did so herself for 13 years before getting sober, and noted recovery is the gift that keeps on giving.

Inspired after sending her only child off to college last year, Reed says she started volunteering with Court Appointed Special Advocates of Southwest Missouri, a nonprofit which advocates for children in foster care.

Your proudest moment? When I hit 10 years in recovery this past November! One day at a time! We not only recover but we thrive!

Favorite hobby or creative outlet? Longest: Yoga for the past 10 years. Newest: I have been learning how to play the ukulele with my husband. He is much better than me, but I am getting there.

Favorite food item to order in the Springfield area? Key Lime Pie Concrete from Andy’s! When the season hits, I can eat like four a week! It is a problem! But life is short, and they are so good that it will not be a problem I will be addressing anytime soon – or ever.
