After interning and volunteering with Beacon in 2016, Reika is excited to return as a Database & Office Assistant. As an intern, she supported the Fund Development team with event planning and database management. Reika has a strong passion for community empowerment and cultivating an environment where people can live dignified lives, and she believes Beacon does just that. She lives with her husband, Nick, in Saint Paul with two cats, Marbles and Mr. Meeseeks. Outside of Beacon, Reika likes to repair and customize video game consoles, play the piano, dance, and cook.
