About Alisa


Alisa Blackwood writes and edits articles and essays about travel, parenting, pregnancy, and healthy living. Her work has appeared in publications such as O, The Oprah Magazine, Travel + Leisure Family, and Cooking Light, on web sites such as TravelandLeisure.com and CNN.com, and in newspapers around the world. Alisa blogs regularly at BloomaBlog.com, a site that nurtures the mind, body and spirit of moms and moms-to-be.

Before freelancing, Alisa was a food + nutrition editor at Health magazine and a reporter for The Associated Press. She has also written for corporate publications, written web site copy for small businesses, and enjoys tailoring her work to the needs of her clients.

Alisa has written about everything from AIDS vaccine research, to kayaking with manatees, the best place for a Minneapolis bike ride, foods that spike your stress level, and her fondness for state fairs—particularly the Tilt-A-Whirl ride.

She will travel anywhere. Her sense of adventure has taken her (so far) to parts of Africa, Central America, Europe and throughout the United States. Alisa will try most anything once (and write about it, of course), including jumping out of a plane or eating worms in Namibia.

When Alisa is not writing or mothering her two children, she works as a birth doula and yoga teacher.
