Dr. Leigh Summer Leigh Summer, MD

With 16 years as an established general medicine practitioner, Dr. Leigh Summer began offering laser and aesthetic treatment services in 2008. Dr. Summer’s attention to patient care and well-being is a core part of her practice. She believes in the importance of making each patient feel comfortable, in a setting with no obligations or pressure, addressing each question or concern about specific treatments and goals. Being a part of helping patients feel and look their best is the most rewarding part of her job.

Kristen Murphy, PA-C

Meet Kristen! Our wonderful PA-C!

Kristen has been in practice in Winston-Salem since her graduation from Wake Forest University’s Physician Assistant program in 1997. She joined Dr. Summer at Lewisville Laser in 2013. In her 25 years of medicine, Kristen has strived to provide exceptional care for her patients’ emotional and physical well-being.

As a Master Injector with both Allergan and Galderma, Kristen focuses on advanced injection techniques as well as laser and skin rejuvenation treatments. Her goal is always a natural, youthful appearance for her patients. Botox is one of her favorite treatments and she’s a huge fan of preventative skin care!

Kristen is married to a local physician, and enjoys the craziness of life with their two awesome sons. When she isn’t enjoying time with her family or at Lewisville Laser, you can find her at the YMCA teaching BodyCombat!


Hannah Allen, Esthetician

Hannah is one of our licensed Aestheticians at Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics. Hannah has over 15 years of experience in the skin care industry, and is passionate about expanding her knowledge in the field. Hannah does everything from Dermaplanes and IPL Photofacials to Microblading and Ultherapy. As a clinical educator, Hannah stays on the cutting edge of aesthetics technology and education. She has trained medical and aesthetic offices across the United States on how to safely and effectively operate the Ultherapy device. We’re so lucky to have her!

Hannah’s husband Timmy is a local teacher, and together they have two wonderful boys. When she isn’t at Lewisville Laser or traveling for training you can find her spending time with her family.


Kristin Carson

We’d say she is Dr. Summer’s assistant, but she is so much more than that — she’s more of an extension of Doc! When you have an appointment with Dr. Summer, you actually may see Kristin first. She helps keep Doc’s schedule (and all of us) running smoothly.

Kristin is in her sixth year with Lewisville Laser, and is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to skincare. You can always trust her recommendations on the perfect products to fit your needs and budget!

Kristin is also a mother of twins. She hails from Greensboro, NC where she studied Marketing and Business Management at UNC-G. As part of the Lewisville Laser team, and as a certified group fitness instructor, Kristin is able to fulfill her passion of helping people look and feel their very best. In her personal time, she enjoys reading, traveling and spending time with friends and family.


Sydney Morrison

Sydney is in her fifth year as a licensed Aesthetician with Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics. She performs treatments from Hydrafacials and peels to laser hair removal—and everything in between! Sydney strives to help people feel better about themselves by providing excellent service and recommending products customized to their needs. Syd is famous in our office because she’s the one person who knows where everything is!

Sydney loves being an aunt to her sweet nephew and spending time with her friends. She’s a loyal Panthers fan, and if she could be on the water every day, she would!


Sarah Gillett

Sarah is the Marketing Director at Lewisville Laser. If you’ve called our office and ended up on the phone for half an hour, you probably talked to Sarah! As Hannah and Sydney like to say, Sarah is the “words person.”

Sarah is married to Andy and has four amazing adult children, and has decided she doesn’t like being an empty nester! She loves being with family, singing at church, and anything related to Bono and U2.


Anne Abernethy

Anne is our front desk guru! Hers is usually the first face you see at Lewisville Laser or the voice you hear when you call. Anne is the administrative heart of our practice, and her steady hand helps keep the team running on all cylinders!

Anne has lived in Winston-Salem since she was a child, and we’re convinced that she knows everyone! She’s worked as a teacher, in sales at Wachovia, and she spent 20 years as a stay-at-home mom to her three children. Anne is an avid gardener and is working hard toward her Master points in bridge. She is also a volunteer extraordinaire, receiving the Volunteer of the Year award for the school system many times.


Ashley Epperly

As both a seasoned administrator and a licensed CMA, Ashley is a jack-of-all-trades here at LLA. As part of our “front of house” team, Ashley will greet you and get you settled in for your treatment, but she may be a part of your treatment team as well! A self-described book nerd, Ashley loves all things Harry Potter, and wouldn’t mind binge-watching “Outlander.” Her product advice? Don’t leave home without your Samaya Oils!


Madison Link

Madison is the youngest member of our staff here at Lewisville Laser, and brings a spark of happy energy to our days. She’s quickly becoming our PA-C Kristen’s right-hand woman in the treatment room! A Texas native, Madison moved to Winston-Salem with her fiancé Logan in 2020. They’ve loved settling in here, and particularly enjoy that there’s a great place for coffee, pastries, or craft beer around almost every corner.

Outside the office, you’ll find Madison is never far from Honey, her goldendoodle (and awesome hiking buddy). And when Honey lets her, Madison loves to travel and spend time with family.
