Dr. Reed has been a licensed pharmacist and wellness expert for almost two decades. She has seen first-hand how wellness impacts health in the community. The World Health Organization defines self-care as: “the ability of individuals, families, and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a healthcare provider.” The FLY Pharmacist acts as an advocate to empower and educate her community to make self-care a priority in their lives. As a Self-Care Strategist, Dr. Reed provides the tools and training necessary to create a successful self-care plan.
She 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.
