Aja Reid

Human Resources, Consultant, and Project Manager in Cary, North Carolina

I was named after the song, "Aja" by the band Steely Dan, so music has always been a part of me! I sing and have played clarinet for over 20 years.

I love bringing out the best in people! I am full of charisma and energy and feel that I have the ability to engage others, even when matters are difficult. I am passionate about making business processes time and cost effective and am always searching for new ways to be more productive.

Leadership styles have always intrigued me. I feel that an effective leader is able to bring out the best in others by making them feel valued and by uncovering what truly motivates them.

I am a proud graduate of Florida A&M University, possessing a Bachelors degree in Business Management and I also have a Master's degrees in Organizational and Leadership Effectiveness and Human Resource Management from Troy University. In my quest to be a Higher Education Human Resources expert, I have aspirations of obtaining a Juris Doctorate, specializing in Employment Law.

My professional background is in Higher Education, Human Resources and Accounting. I am fair, honest and loyal and take my professional reputation very serious. If a project, policy or effort bares my name, you can be assured that it is thorough and concise.

I love to have fun and enjoy being a wife and mother of 2 wonderful children.
