Reeder was born in Pueblo, Colorado.[1] She trained with the Santa Clara Swim Club in Santa Clara, California, under coach George Haines.[2][3]

As a 16-year-old, Reeder represented the United States at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.[1][3] She swam for the gold medal-winning U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the women's 4x100-meter medley relay,[1][4] but did not receive a medal.
