The 6’3 beauty has expressed interest in beauty and fashion—Reese mentioned in an interview that she wanted to work with Mielle Organics. Rodriguez reached out to her and sealed a deal that will include marketing, social media, events, and products.

“Athletes are the ideal beauty icons and brand ambassadors,” Reese said. “I’m a longtime user and fan of the brand so this is the perfect partnership. “I can’t wait to share more with my fans and introduce my new Mielle bundle.”

The last few months have been a whirlwind for the Baltimore, Maryland, native. Reese has signed several NIL deals after leading the Tigers to a 2023 national championship. She recently appeared in the 2023 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, with her infamous ring pose.
