Interview With Pharmacist, Dr. Ashley Wade

Interview With Pharmacist, Dr. Ashley Wade


Ashley Wade, or Dr. Wade, as some would call her, is a pharmacist, community activist, and author residing in Dallas, Texas. Born in Sulphur Springs, Texas, and raised in Longview, Texas, she has a diverse background. Staying consistent with her projects within the community, her eyes are set on the top, and she comes from humble beginnings. Working on her projects relentlessly, she speaks more on her endeavors and upcoming work she has going on. 

“I’m working on creating safe spaces to have conversations about self discovery, racism, and increasing the consciousness of my people by encouraging reading and truth seeking. I am the author of a book called ‘It’s a Journey: A Holistic Journal for Discovering Self.’ It is a five module process that is also a safe space guiding those who want to better connect with themselves along a clear path. I use it in the community as a conversation starter to engage in conversations. This book is my first project in my business called ADH Pharmacy Consulting, LLC. Through my business I am able to provide the direct consultations to people who want to know more about a drug they are considering taking and provide support through Medication Therapy Management, and Disease State Education. It’s not easy to navigate the healthcare field as a patient and I’m here to the support that understanding." Known as a book nerd, funny, and stylish, Dr. Wade is completely adamant about creating as a visionary, and is motivated by her loved ones. Dr. Wade is not one to give up. Her goal is to keep moving ahead and to create something meaningful with her work.

How have you overcome struggles to be where you are now?

I have overcome personal struggles by setting boundaries and operating in self love and worth when making decisions. What I found is that when you are in tune with the universe your path will illuminate from who to keep and who not to keep in your life to which opportunities to take advantage of and which ones to pass on. Awareness is key.

As a business owner, what are some obstacles you have had to overcome to get where you are at?

I have had to overcome imposter syndrome mostly. I’ve been trained to be a scientist most of my life so seeing and accepting the elevation is something I wrestle with daily. I still get a little flustered when I get opportunities, like wow! I am so in awe of my life right now.

I have also overcome the toxic mindset of thinking I have to do everything by myself when it comes to business. There are so many people willing to help and support you as you grow and they are experts. Call on the experts when you need assistance instead of letting things stand in the way of you flourishing in your gifts and talents.

What do you have coming up right now that you want others to know about?

I will be the guest speaker for an upcoming Webinar presented by Brittany Walker of New Nation Goddess called “Happiness Happens Holistically.” She is an Entrepreneurial Consulting Expert, Plant-based nutritionist and author and I am a Consulting Pharmacist, Wellness Advocate and Author so you know the space will be lit with high energy and good vibes. This is a free event where we will be dropping lucrative gems that will aid in your overall development (personal and career). Including positive, productive, and peaceful strategies, Q&A sessions with licensed health professionals, and raffle giveaways totaling more than $2,000. Brittany Walker and I both encourage holisticThe event will take place on Wednesday, August 31 via YouTube live and registration is the only requirement.

I also have my first official book signing event coming up on September 17th at the Pan African Connection and Resource Center in Dallas, TX. There’s no better way to promote my book than to engage with people at my favorite book store in the city. I’m proud to share my book about self discovery in a place that encourages connecting with your African history and roots.

Dr. Wade's work ethic has been consistent from the start. She never gave up and describes a nonstop passion. “What inspires me to keep going is that I’m self aware and clear on my purpose. I’ve been gifted with an empathetic spirit for a reason and I’m excited to engage with people and demonstrate that it’s in alignment with the universe to be your authentic self. I am also inspired by the volunteer work that I do in the community supporting the Luke 4:18 Bail Fund through Faith in Texas. It reminds me that my presence matters even to people I don’t even know. Get involved in the community folks, where your light can be experienced.” Dr. Wade keeps a positive attitude toward reaching her goal.

Dr. Wade went on to remark that her passion for her work will always be a driving force in her life, the people around her influencing her a lot. “The people who have been the most influential in my life are my Uncle Clarence Nash, my spiritual advisor Dr. Cedric Adams, and the my late grandmother Lela Mae Wade.” Currently, Dr. Wade ’s attention is focused on continuing to pursue her career in order to build on her already solid foundation and take it even farther than it has already gone, in the community and her work places. She leaves her reader, and her supporters with a piece of advice. 

“You’re thinking small when you need to be thinking big. Your wildest dreams are within reach, when you achieve it. There’s more. You are a multi-faceted being so get used to receiving opportunity after opportunity. Always Believe in Yourself. In the meantime, expand your consciousness. Read a Book! Also get Involved in Community Service.”
