Traci Reed

Traci Reed

Student Relations

Traci joined the hospitality industry 9 years ago. In early 2022 she brought her experience to Exxir Capital. Exxir Capital is a development group in Dallas, Texas that focuses primarily on mixed use development within the Bishop Arts District.

Traci’s passion for design began at an early age, creating her first furniture set at 11. While a collegiate basketball scholarship led to her first degree in Professional Studies, her love for design brought her back to school to obtain her second degree in Interior Design.

She married her husband two years ago and recently welcomed a baby girl in September of 2022. She enjoys traveling and loves spending time with her new family. In her down time, she prefers reading and completing jigsaw puzzles.
