Alisha Kelley, Owner of Trichom Health Center, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of pediatric care, pain management, mental health counseling, and medical marijuana.
After being diagnosed with breast cancer and facing an uphill battle, it was in 2018 that Ms. Kelley put aside her antiquated views of cannabis and began using it as a treatment. After seeing the results within her own health, she became an advocate and began helping others navigate their way in medical marijuana. In 2019, she became working as a Director of Operations for a medical marijuana clinic but soon realized the owner was just in it for profit and not for the benefit of patients. She decided to branch out and open her own business, and later that year the doors to Trichom Health Center were opened to serve the community in Pinellas Park, FL.
Ms. Kelley came from a background in health care, providing her skills and services in pediatric care for a number of years. She first earned an Associate of Arts from St. Petersburg College and then received an Associate of Science in health/health care administration and management from St. Petersburg College. She holds a Certificate In Healthcare Sciences and is a Certified Healer through the Healer Program.
Looking towards the future, Ms. Kelley hopes to continue building her business and working as a role model for her children. She hopes to advocate for medical marijuana use on a larger scale and believes her success is based on being transparent and helping patients find their voice. In recognition of her work, she was featured In The DuPont Registry and the NFL Superbowl Magazine. She has been nominated For Best Advocate and for Best Medical Facility. Ms. Kelley maintains professional affiliation with the Holistic Chamber and the Tampa Bay Diversity Chamber.
