Professional Staff

Amy Schuckman, Assistant Dean of Students for Residence Life 

Amy is smiling

Hi! My name is Amy and I am the Assistant Dean of Students for Residence Life. I oversee the department and supervise all the professional staff. I grew up in upstate New York (way upstate near the Canadian border) and went to school at St. Lawrence University where I graduated with a degree in Sociology and Psychology. After graduation, I moved to Delaware and served a year in AmeriCorps working with mentoring programs in public schools. I then earned my Masters in College Counseling from the University of Delaware. I moved to Oregon to work at Reed and I am a west-coast convert. I started at Reed as a Resident Director and held several different positions in the department before starting my current role in February of 2012. In my spare time I like to try new Portland restaurants, attempt to make my own sushi, explore Portland outdoors with my family, binge watch tv series on Netflix, and drink good coffee.

Clea Taylor, Assistant Director of Housing Operations

Clea  

Hi there! I'm Clea Taylor and I'm the Assistant Director of Housing Operations here at Reed. I graduated from Bennington College, a tiny liberal arts college in Vermont, where I studied Education, Psychology, and Theater. I lived in New York City for several years and then decided to move across the country to make Portland my home. After spending some time working in the Art Department at PSU I decided I needed to get back to a smaller, private college environment and Reed was the perfect fit! I'm thrilled to be working with such amazing students and staff in a city that I love so much.  Some things I enjoy: exploring the outdoors with my dog Cooper, discovering tasty places to eat, browsing bookstores to find something new to read, visiting farmers markets, and cooking with my husband. Feel free to stop by if you ever have any questions about housing at Reed - or just need a good restaurant recommendation!

Julia Nicholson, Assistant Director of Training and Education
Julia

Hey peeps! My name is Julia and I'm the Assistant Director of Training and Education. I also oversee the apartments, co-ops, and canyon house. I'm originally from the Bay Area in California, and I did my undergraduate work at University of the Pacific. After graduating, I moved to a little town called Oxford, Ohio to complete my M.S. in Student Affairs at Miami University. One of my academic and personal interests is gaming, and you can often find me playing online games in my spare time. Some of my other interests include anything fantasy/sci-fi, movies, the beach, and my corgi, Watson! Feel free to stop by and chat sometime, say hi to Watson and me around campus, or join me for a game!

Resident Directors

Working to assist the House Advisers in everything they do are our Resident Directors (RDs). RDs are full-time professional staff members who work and live on campus. RDs provide support for the house advisors, are advocates for students concerns, and help students experiencing difficulties at Reed. They provide emergency on-call coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week when school is in session.

Sydney Spiller, RD for the Grove and Cross Canyons

RD Sydney Spiller

Hi! My name is Sydney and I am thrilled to be the RD for the Grove and Cross Canyons.  I recently graduated with my M.A. in Higher Education from the University of Denver (DU). While I was at DU I explored my passion for supporting underrepresented students in my position at the Center for Multicultural Excellence. Before attending the University of Denver I earned my B.A. from Boise State University in Idaho, my home state.  I am delighted that Reed College is my next step! I'm looking forward to exploring the city of Portland and the beautiful outdoors here. 
Logan Brouelette, RD for Foster, Scholz, and MacNaughton
logan brouelette Hello! I grew up just north of Seattle and attended Western Washington University where I majored in creative writing and minored in classical studies. I moved to Portland after undergrad to pursue an MA in Student Affairs Administration at Lewis & Clark College where I spent most of my time working with students in the Career Center assisting with web content and career software. In my free time I nerd out going to arcades and playing Age of Empires, refereeing and watching soccer (go Sounders!), listening to pop punk (and some screamo), and competing in absurdly long endurance sports. I'm very excited to be at Reed and to get to know everyone!
Tim Kay, RD for Naito and Sullivan
Tim Kay Hey Hey everyone! My name is Tim and I am currently the RD for Naito and Sullivan Hall. I am originally from Cary, North Carolina (located in the Raleigh Durham area) but have lived in many unique places. After high school, I joined the US Army and was a parachuting logistical expert. After a few years of living in New York City, I moved back to North Carolina where I attended Western Carolina University. I obtained my Bachelor’s in Sport Management with a minor in Psychology. After realizing my true passion was working with students in a university setting, I pursued my M.A. in Higher Education at the University of Mississippi. My graduate assistantship centered around my interest in working with underrepresented populations which include people of color, LGBTQ and gender fluid/non binary communities, and how to support them with safe and inclusive spaces.  My personal interests and hobbies include eating, travelling, exploring what Portland has to offer and watching Netflix/Amazon Prime with anything sci-fi, documentaries, or about dystopian realities.  Feel free to say hello if you see me around! 
Lindsay Stoddard, RD for ODB, Anna Mann, and the Language Houses
lindsay

Hello folks, Lindsay here. This year, I am serving as the RD for ye Old Dorm Block, Anna Mann, and the Language Houses. Born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, I decided that I had one sunburn too many and found myself in college in Tacoma, WA at the University of Puget Sound. I was an RA, majored in Communication Studies, and somehow found time to do crew. My next adventure landed me in graduate school pursuing my M.Ed. in Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration at the University of Vermont, where I combined a love of psychology and maple creemees. I can be found crafting, searching for the next best food truck, or binge-watching netflix. If you ever want to chat about college, life, or life after college (or what I should watch next on Netflix) gimme a holler.

Student House Advisers (HA)

Your house adviser (HA) is one of the first people you will meet at Reed. These upper-class students are selected for their skills and interest in helping fellow students, and are trained in areas such as peer counseling and conflict mediation. They act as an excellent resource for questions about academics, campus life, and Portland in general. HAs also help to bring students together by organizing activities such as movie nights, pizza parties, study breaks, provocative talks, excursions around Portland, and trips to the coast or the Reed ski cabin with the students of their residence halls. At least one house adviser lives in every residence hall.
