I am ecstatic to say that Alissa Thompson, Registered Dietician is now a contributor to our site. Personally and professionally, Alissa consistently pushes the envelope of excellence and is among the top nutrition experts in the nation!
Alissa graduated from Michigan State University in 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Dietetics. Completed Wayne State University’s Didactic Internship Program in 2011. Upon completion of the internship Alissa passed the national board exam receiving her Registered Dietitian credentialing.
She completed her first triathlon in 2007 in Grand Haven, MI. Upon completion of her first triathlon, she like many others was hooked. She joined Michigan State University’s triathlon team competing in three national championship races. Her collegiate career opened her eyes to long distance triathlon races which became her true passion. In June of 2010 Alissa completed Ironman Cour D’ alene finishing in a time of 13:30. She recently moved to San Diego, CA and has joined the Triathlon Club of San Diego, the worlds largest triathlon club.
Welcome, to the family, Alissa!!!
