Tim Brady Pharmacist Owner

Tim Brady, Pharmacist - Owner

Most people will tell you Tim’s just a really nice guy who is easy to talk to. But he’s done a lot of other neat stuff too. He has been a practicing pharmacist since 2000. He has worked in hospitals, large pharmacy chains, and independent pharmacies in both Canada and the United States before opening Brady’s Drug Store in 2014. Tim is currently the Chair of the Board of Directors for the Ontario Pharmacists Association, and is a Past President of the Essex County Pharmacists Association and former Ontario College of Pharmacy Accreditation Committee Member. Tim also sits on the Public Advisory Committee for St. Clair College’s Pharmacy Technician program and presents regularly to the Windsor Essex County Prostate Support Group. And if that isn’t enough, he does national and provincial talks to pharmacy colleagues on patient-centred care.

Tim has received awards for Excellence in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Leadership from Ferris State University in Michigan, and was the Alzheimer Society of Windsor-Essex County’s Philanthropist of the Year in 2012. Tim was also part of the Rotary Vocational Training Team that same year, and travelled to East Timor to help set up rural pharmacies and drug distribution networks.

When she’s not in the pharmacy, she’s a dedicated hockey mom and past AAA Atom team manager and even billets players for the Windsor Spitfires.


Ally Bailey

Ally is a recent pharmacist graduate who grew up in Lakeshore and now lives in the town of Essex. If she is not at the pharmacy, you might find her in the local vintage record store adding to her collection of classic rock and alternative vinyl.

“This is my dream job,” says Ally. “Brady’s really is the friendliest Drug Store. They go the extra mile for their patients.”
