Reena took interest in games like volleyball, throw ball, running race and javelin throw other than music during her school days.
She took part in all church inter-parish competitions every year from junior level. She was winning continuously in these competitions held at Don Bosco Hall.
She remembers Konkan Kogull Wilfy Rebimbus, Meena, Veena and Vishwas, who trained her for the inter-parish singing competitions.
Reena was an active member of Jeppu choir for many years and opted to sing alto those days. She was president of ICYM for 2 years from 1997- 98.

Reena is married to Shashi Noronha and has a son named Marcus. The 4-year-old is also a singer.
The songs in the debut album were composed since her teen days and also after marriage. She never sang her own songs as she was nervous to unveil them. But her husband Shashi Noronha encouraged her to sing her own songs. The rest is history.
