Dr. Alisha Reed

New Orleans Self-Care expert.

Dr. Alisha Reed is a Mother, Pharmacist, Certified Life Coach, and Creator of the lifestyle brand FLY with Alisha Reed. Dr. Reed was born and raised in New Orleans, where she attended Xavier University of Louisiana and received a Doctorate of Pharmacy degree. As a licensed pharmacist for almost two decade, she has seen first-hand how self-care impacts health in the community.

Dr. 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 such a buzzword, but the truth is that self-care is whatever you need it to be.

After losing her husband in 2019, Dr. Reed wanted to normalize grief by publicly sharing her grief journey, while continuing to practice exceptional self-care. Dr. Reed moderates a widow support group and hosts The Fly Widow Podcast.

You can follow her on Instagram @dralishareed for all your self-care needs.
