Board-certified Geriatric Pharmacist
Founder, FLY with Alisha Reed
New Orleans, LA
Alisha Reed, Pharm.D., is The FLY Pharmacist, self-care strategist and founder of the lifestyle brand,
Fly with Alisha Reed. Reed was born and raised in New Orleans, where she attended Xavier
University of Louisiana and received a doctorate of pharmacy degree.
Reed has been a licensed and board-certified geriatric pharmacist for almost two decades and has seen firsthand how self-care impacts health in the community. She acts as an advocate to empower and educate her community to make self-care a priority in their lives and provides the tools and training necessary to create a successful self-care plan.
Reed is a widow mom who believes that self-care is non-negotiable and is determined to break
the generational curse that “strong women don’t take breaks.” Self-care has become a
buzzword, but the truth is that self-care is whatever you need it to be.
After losing her husband in 2019, Reed wanted to normalize grief by publicly sharing her
grief journey, while continuing to practice exceptional self-care. Reed moderates a widow
support group and hosts “The Fly Widow Podcast.”
