Shauna Reid
Dr. Reid is a child and adolescent psychiatrist. She received her medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. She then completed her psychiatry residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and did a fellowship in Child Psychiatry at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. Dr. Reid currently owns her own practice, North Texas Child Psychiatry, and also is practicing tele-psychiatry in under served areas of Texas.
Dr. Reid’s daughter began participating in NTPA-Fairview’s program in 2018 and fell in love with theatre. Since then she has watched her daughter grow in areas of confidence, collaborative work, leadership and skill and grew to appreciate the benefits this program can have on our youth. Her son, previously interested only in sports, was compelled to complete his first show after being inspired by his sister.
Dr. Reid regularly volunteers in various production roles and was excited to join the Fairview Management Board in 2019. She is honored to serve on the board and is hoping to help increase the thumbprint size NTPA can make on youth in our community. She would love for many other children to find theatre and the atmosphere of inclusion and family that she and her family have experienced.
