Alissa Balzart

Alissa first stepped on staff at Wooddale in March 2020 as the communications director. She came from a background in healthcare, writing clinical content for patients and leading employee wellness efforts for over eight years. Her passion for offering encouragement has always been a central focus of her life and she especially enjoys helping others thrive through a holistic approach to wellness. Outside of Wooddale, you can find Alissa out in nature with her husband Derek biking, playing pickleball, walking her dog Murphy or lying in the hammock, or their other favorite pastime—riding mopeds around the city!
