Kyla Reed

Content Marketing Manager

Kyla Reed is based in Atlanta, GA.

How long have you been at BibliU?

About a year, and I have loved every minute.

What does your job entail?

My job is to create and manage a content strategy and calendar that support marketing and sales goals. I get to collaborate with a bunch of teams within BibliU to ensure they all have the content they need to support their goals.

What do you enjoy most about your role, your team, and BibliU?

I enjoy that every day is different - I am never bored with my job. My role allows me to be creative and think critically, and I have a lot of freedom to structure my work in a way that works best for me. My team and the BibliU team as a whole are so supportive, and I love that I feel like I have the support I need to do my job well.

What's the worst holiday you've ever taken and why?

I can't say that I've been on any completely awful holidays, but I have gotten food poisoning abroad a couple of times. Once in Peru before getting on the plane home (miserable), and then my husband and I both got it on our honeymoon in Thailand. We had a rough couple of days, but luckily we recovered in plenty of time to enjoy the rest of our trip - though I didn't touch mango sticky rice again.

What's something on your bucket list?

I have a goal to visit every continent - I only have Australia and Antarctica left!

If you could see any artist or band (dead or alive, disbanded or together) in concert, who would you see?

Otis Redding, in a heartbeat.

What’s your favourite place you’ve traveled to and why?

I honestly can't pick a favorite, but my top three (in no particular order) are Morocco, Kenya, and Israel. No specific reasons why, I just enjoyed my experiences in all three places more than other places.

What song brings up a good memory? What’s the memory?

Pompeii by Bastille - The year it came out, I spent a semester studying in London and the song was EVERYWHERE. I met some incredible friends during my time there, and am lucky enough to still be close with all of them. So whenever I hear that song, I'm suddenly 21 again, exploring London with my friends, doing very little actual studying, trying to figure it all out, and having the time of my life.

What do you like to do in your free time? Got any hobbies?

I love to explore new places with my husband, go on hikes, read, do yard work (seriously, I love yard work), browse around antique stores, and cook.

Do you have any phobias?

Flying - I absolutely hate it. I will have a full panic attack at the gate before I get on any flight, no matter how short. But I love to travel, so I just suck it up.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I would love to learn how to sew - and it's not for lack of trying. My grandmothers and my mom all tried to teach me years ago, and I unfortunately did not inherit their talent for it.

What was the last book you read?

The Nix by Nathan Hill. I would highly recommend it.

What was the last thing you binge-watched?

Bingeing/catching up on The Afterparty.

What's your comfort food?

A giant bowl of pasta, any pasta. Or pot roast.

Give us an unpopular opinion.

I'll give you three: Taylor Swift's music is overrated. Any version of The Bachelor/The Bachelorette is trash. Burpees are fun.

If you could only watch one show for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Parks and Recreation.

Coffee of tea? How do you take it?

Coffee, black.

What's your go-to order at the pub/bar?

Dirty gin martini or a glass of cabernet.

What's your favorite thing to do where you live?

Eat. Seriously. Atlanta does food really well, so my husband and I have Friday night dates to try new restaurants or revisit old favorites.
