Brandy Ervin

Dr. Ervin

Brandy Ervin, MD | Fourth Year Resident

"Since I am originally from Northern California and moved to Tennessee from Louisiana, I spend my free time communicating with friends and family. Spare time is also spent reading OB/GYN related topics but also fiction, enjoying theatre, foreign films and exploring terrain with my dog.

My professional intentions are to work with the underserved communities of a large city. The residency program of ETSU OB/GYN and the ancillary hospitals that are also involved in my residency education allow me to have experiences at an early stage of my education that I would not have access to until 3rd/4th year at many other programs. This early access will translate to enhanced technical and management experiences that will help me serve my future medical populations well."

Dr. Seay

Rebecca Seay, MD | Fourth Year Resident

"After interviewing at ETSU, I knew this would be a perfect place to learn, work, and raise a family. Once we moved to Johnson City, my husband, sons, and I immediately began to explore the area. Rafting, kayaking, and other outdoor activities abound and we still have so much to discover! We have had no trouble making friends and the schools are great.

I am very fortunate to love my work and be surrounded by caring, compassionate coworkers and teachers. I feel like ETSU is the right fit for my me, from the extensive hands-on experience to the dedicated educational programs. My family and I are very happy here."

Dr. Mullins

Amber Mullins, MD | Third Year Resident

"I was born and raised in Southern California but have spent the last 16 years in the mountains of East Tennessee. I'm married and am the proud parent of 2 horses, a dog, and a cat. I love to travel, read good books, fish, hike, boat at the lake, run (I recently completed my first marathon). I've recently purchased my first telescope and consider myself an "amateur stargazer."

Training where I will get an excellent education with good surgical exposure is important to me. I also want a program with camaraderie among residents and faculty. I found ALL that and more at ETSU! The ETSU OB/GYN residents are happy and attendings are all wonderful and very approachable. Everyone is very supportive. I am looking forward to being a part of the team!"

Dr. Reardon

Meredith Reardon, MD | Third Year Resident

"I am from Greeneville, Tennessee and I have been a going to school in Johnson City since high school. I enjoy hiking, going to the lake, and reading. I like hanging out with my black lab mix, Nula, and my boyfriend. I also play lots of sports. My favorites are volleyball, softball, and basketball.

I did my medical training at QCOM and I loved working with the faculty and residents! I have an excellent relationship with the staff and I knew that working with the ETSU OB/GYN department would be fun with excellent training. My father is an OB/GYN Doctor in Greeneville, Tennessee. I believe it is important to be near family I can lean on for knowledge and guidance.'

Dr. Hobdy

Danielle Hobdy, MD | Second Year Resident

I also seek to be a surgeon with a focus on health screenings and continued health care."

Jessica spends her free time scuba diving, reading "for fun" books like mysteries, and spending time with her family.
