Dr. Denson practiced pediatric medicine in Texarkana, TX for 8 years in a private clinic. She then had the privilege of working at All for Kids, a primarily Medicaid clinic, from 2010-2018 as a physician and assistant professor for UAMS. Dr. Denson has enjoyed public speaking throughout her medical career. She has spoken on many topics and to many ages. Her subject material has included basic hygiene and first aid, cycles of abuse, teen abstinence and HIV prevention, sex education, pre-natal health and development, parenting, and adolescent health. Her experience at the state of Arkansas’ premier children’s hospital provided her the unique opportunity to learn from and assist children and parents in some of life’s most challenging situations. Many of her parenting tips come from seeing what works, and what doesn’t, in all types of families.
Dr. Denson has been married to an amazingly wonderful man, Wayne, for over twenty-five years. Their family started early with the arrival of their son Chase, now 23, who was born while she was a third year medical student, and Brett, now 20, who was born during her residency. The rest of the kids joined a little later.
Dr. Denson has participated in medical missions through out her career. She has served in Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico many times. In 2010, Alyson felt called to go to Haiti after the earthquake in January. She worked with orphans and children with amputations for about a month and became convicted that her family should increase through adoption. God took the family on a surprising journey that ended in St. Petersburg, Russia where LeAnna, now 22, and Alex, now 18, became members of the family in March of 2011.
Alyson, now the mother of four, has also served her community through numerous church and volunteer positions. Alyson became a Christian as a young child and is blessed with an ever growing relationship with Christ. Most recently, Alyson traveled to Africa and worked in Nkhoma Mission Hospital in Malawi for 3 months. Additionally, she and Wayne just moved to Austin, Texas. She is now hoping to expand The TALK in this area. Her passion for pediatrics and motherhood finds a perfect union in her seminars.
