Before becoming a Texan, Reeny attended law school in her hometown of Chicago, Illinois at Loyola University Chicago School of Law.

She then served as a judicial extern for Cook County Circuit Court Judge Pamela Meyerson.

Reeny found her passion for litigation by participating in Loyola’s nationally recognized moot court program, where she competed in tournaments across the country and was awarded the titles of Midwest Regional Champion, National Runner Up, and National Best Brief.  Reeny’s accomplishments and service to the community awarded her Loyola’s prestigious Leadership, Service, and Public Interest Award upon graduation.
