Alysia Mercer

Director of Finance & Operations

[a-LEESH-ah] Alysia joined the team as our new Director of Finance & Operations in December 2015. In partnership with our senior management and Board of Directors, she oversees our finances, human resources, office operations and systems.

Alysia brings over 30 years of hands-on accounting experience to The Land Trust. Her ability to set and meet high standards saw her hold senior finance positions at Boult, Cummings, Conners & Berry Law, Nashville Trane (division of American Standard, Inc.) and most recently, Vanderbilt University and Navihealth.

After being raised in Texas for most of her childhood, Alysia moved to Tennessee and has called this beautiful state home ever since. She is married to her best friend, Johnny, and together they have four children, Michael, Megan, Brandon and Kara (six if you count their Boxer, Bella, and cat, Jasmine).

In her spare time, you can find Alysia exploring the outdoors and tapping into her creative side. She loves planting flowers and building ponds, finding her most peaceful moments to be relaxing by the water with a book or planning her next outdoor project. Alysia is also a self-published children’s author and illustrator and is hard at work on her second book.

What do I love most about my job?
I love joining a team of such dedicated people who love the outdoors as much as I do. I feel very fortunate to have been given this opportunity.
