Family and Interests

Alysia is originally from Birmingham, Alabama, but joined the Atlanta community more than 10 years ago. She lives in North Druid Hills with her husband, three young kids, and an elderly dog named Piper. With an eleven-year-old, an eight-year-old, and a five-year-old, most of Alysia’s hobbies include driving her children to their hobbies, but when the chance arises, she loves to read, to travel, and to spend time with friends and family. 


After graduating from Auburn University, Alysia and her husband moved to London, UK, for a grand adventure. They lived in London for seven years, and their eldest daughter was born there. Soon after, they relocated back to Atlanta, where Alysia began working as a medical assistant at Dermatology Affiliates. Dr. Forney and the other providers trained her from the ground up in dermatology, and she continued working while she had her two youngest kids. Alysia worked for seven years as a medical assistant at DA before starting PA school at Mercer University. After graduation, she accepted a job to come back home to Dermatology Affiliates.

Alysia loves to help patients feel empowered to keep their skin clear and healthy, and she’s passionate about sun protection. She loves forming relationships with patients as she helps them reach their goals.

Alysia is a member of Georgia Association of Physician Assistants, American Academy of Physician Assistants, and Georgia Dermatology Physician Assistants.
