She worked with the Labyrinth Theatre Company, a multi-cultural acting space in Manhattan where she is a founding member, along with Rockwell, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Ortiz and Lauren Velez, among others. She has served as both actor and producer on numerous productions over the past 10 years.

She is best known for her portrayal of Nurse Carla Espinosa on the NBC sitcom Scrubs from 2001-present. "I really admire Carla - she's smart and sassy and a very good nurse," says Reyes. "I like that she remains confident and unapologetic in a world where nurses don't receive the same respect as doctors."
Reyes' other film credits include Martin Scorsese's Bringing Out the Dead, and the independent film Went to Coney Island on a Mission from God, Be Back by Five. She can also be seen in the film Washington Heights. Additionally Reyes acted in and co-produced (with her husband, writer/director Edwin M.

Reyes' television credits include 100 Centre Street. Her made-for-television movies include John Sanford's Mind Prey, with Eriq La Salle, and The Prosecutors.
Reyes resides in Los Angeles during production, but frequently returns to her native New York. In addition to acting, Reyes looks forward to producing more independent films.
