Hi, I’m Alisa Nelson – Nerd, Mom, Minnesotan, and Self-care advocate.
I’m obsessed with stress + how to handle it. So I write about it here – at the intersection of brain science and real human life – in order to help more women build habits toward sustainable wellness, no matter their calling.
My husband and I have spent our 5+ years of marriage slogging through the start up business muck. And it has become clear to me that the only way for consistent performance is through a commitment to regular + intentional self-care. So you see, wellness and performance go hand-in-hand.
Some places I’ve been:
- BS in Biochemistry from the University of Minnesota – where my journey of studying the effects of stress on the body began.
- Hope Community Church intern — where I first began to piece together how the science I loved could benefit real human lives.
- Personal trainer – where I dove into human performance + holistic wellness.
- Wife and stay-at-home mom of two tiny people – where I experience and study (and guide) human development at its….messiest.
