Alana Reed

Fund Development Manager 

Alana Reed joined United Way of Kern County in June of 2022. Alana was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA. She is currently attending Taft College to obtain a degree in Business Administration. Her previous work involves working with Kern County Superintendent of Schools as a high school mentor at Nueva Continuation High School in Lamont, CA. She has also had the opportunity to participate in volunteer work and offer service through AmeriCorps which works directly with other nonprofits to help serve the community. Her experience through volunteering was able to open her interests not only in education but giving back to the community. Alana is more than grateful to have a role within this organization to become a helping hand for others & to be a part of the continuous support for the residents of Kern County, it’s owed to them.
