Rhnea Reagan is an accounting specialist with the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering.
“I am one of the staff members in the MABE business office assisting faculty and students with purchasing goods and services from vendors, processing travel, and the many other requests,” said Regan.
She also currently serves on the TCE Staff Advisory Council, which she says has been an absolute pleasure—learning how to serve TCE and fellow staff members across the college.
“I enjoy working with the faculty, staff, and students in MABE and TCE,” said Reagan. “Each person I come in contact with has a special way of teaching me to be a better person. I enjoy helping others and learning where they come from.”
Reagan is a Huntington, Tennessee, native but moved to Knoxville for college and graduated in 2004 from UT with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies, with an emphasis in urban studies.
She first began her staff journey with UT in 2004, working with the Office of Alumni Affairs as an administrative assistant with their student programs.
“That position helped kindle a passion inside me for helping students, faculty, staff, and alumni,” said Reagan.
Outside of work, Reagan says you can find her in the mountains of East Tennessee on a beautiful day. However, fall Saturdays are for football and you can find her watching multiple games throughout the day.
Reagan also enjoys spending time with her husband Brad, son Eli, and poodle Cotton.
