Alyssa Fernandes is a proud Registered Dietitian, and has her Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Dietetics and Nutrition. In addition to nutrition, Alyssa is passionate about dance, and has spent over 20 years of her life studying ballet, jazz, and pointe.
In her free time, Alyssa loves developing recipes, running outdoors, and bike-riding through scenic New England trails with her family. Her active lifestyle and interests naturally sparked her passion for nutrition. Her mission is to provide others with evidence-based nutrition education, and encourage them to have self-compassion while striving for better health.
While on the dance team at Florida International University, I was featured by Sports Illustrated as a candidate for Cheerleader of the Week.
I was selected to write the 2020 National Nutrition blog post for the American Heart Association.
I have been a dancer for over 20 years and I have performed the lead role in the Nutcracker more than 10 times.
