Celeste Beaudoin, MD - Fourth Year Resident

"My husband and I are both from Greenville, SC. I am the second of four daughters so my house was always very entertaining growing up. My father is a behavioral pediatrician and my inspiration to become a physician. My mother is an amazing woman and my inspiration in all that I do. I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and our two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I also enjoy painting, making jewelry, photography, reading, watching movies, hiking rock climbing and Gamecock football.

Johnson City is such a beautiful place and that's why I initially chose to apply. Faculty at my program spoke very highly of Dr. Olsen and of all the physicians that come out of ETSU. I was very impressed with the relationship that the ETSU OB/GYN residents had with each other and the faculty. I also like the  large volume of high risk pregnancies and simulation lab curriculum in this program."

Dr. Elkattah

Rayan Elkattah, MD - Fourth Year Resident

In my spare time I enjoy outdoor activities, reading, hunting, fishing, basketball, table tennis and road trips. As an IMG, and having spent 4 days around ETSU during my interview trail, I knew that this was the place to be. The southern hospitality shown by the staff, faculty, and residents makes you feel at home. The atmosphere of collegiality and mutual academic exchange in ETSU's OB/GYN program, along with the great Appalachian spirit and weather made me believe that I am in for an unforgettable residency experience.

Brandy Ervin

Dr. Ervin

Brandy Ervin, MD - Third 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."

I chose the ETSU OB/GYN Department because of their strong clinical and didactic programs. These programs include use of simulation models, CREOG preparation, and unique clinical sites. I was also charmed by the friendly staff and wonderful environment."

Dr. Seay

Rebecca Seay, MD - Third 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 - Second 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!"

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.
