Dr. Mullins

Amber Mullins, MD | Fourth 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 | Fourth 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.'

Kiana Brooks, MD | Third Year Resident

"I am originally from Nashville, TN. I went to medical school at ETSU Quillen College of Medicine. As a medical student the residents and attendings always made my learning experience very enjoyable. I love that this field includes primary care as well as surgery. In my time away from the hospital I enjoy sewing and taking classes at the Center for Physical Activity (CPA) on the main campus."

Danielle Hobdy, MD | Third Year Resident

Danielle enjoys wake boarding, hiking, running, and watching football. "I chose the OB/GYN program because I was looking for the opportunity to be a primary care provider who is also considered a specialist in regards to women's health. I also seek to be a surgeon with a focus on health screenings and continued health care."

Jessica Pugh, MD | Third Year Resident

Jessica spends her free time scuba diving, reading "for fun" books like mysteries, and spending time with her family. "The people associated with the OB/GYN Department were wonderful and really accepted me as a part of the OB/GYN family--even as a student. I believe residents graduating from this program are fully prepared to take care of their patients and are able to handle many different challenges that may arise."

Jacqueline Conger, MD | Second Year Resident

"I was born and raised in Arkansas, attending both undergrad and medical school in the state, and have now ventured out to the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee for Residency.  I love my fellow residents, who both support and challenge me daily.  In addition to my role as resident, I am also wife, and mother to a very energetic little boy who keeps me running.  My boys and I like hiking and playing outside, and in my free time I enjoy all things home and garden.  We love living in East Tennessee and have enjoyed making it our new home."

Brett Karsten, MD | Second Year Resident

Dr. Karsten chose ETSU OB/GYN residency program because his goal of working in a small community fits well with the mission of Quillen College of Medicine. His first birthing experience was helping deliver a calf when he was 14 and he can’t help but wonder if this experience was the spark that influenced his career path. Since coming to East Tennessee, he is quickly becoming an avid NASCAR fan. He enjoys outdoor activities, horses, golfing, motorcycles, and grilling out with family and friends.

Whitney was born and raised in northwest Tennessee but was drawn to the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee for medical school and stayed for residency. She has 2 furbabies- Molly and Barney. Both are beagles. She loves being outside, doing Zumba, cooking, and spending time with family and dogs.

Everyone here is like family, and she never wants to leave!

Alyssa Erksine, MD

Alyssa Erskine-Phelps , MD | First Year Resident

I'm originally from West Virginia, and after medical school in Southern California I am thrilled to be back in the South, land of sweet tea and farmer's markets. My favorite things here are the people, especially my wonderful co-residents, and the gorgeous mountains. In my spare time I cook, go on adventures with my husband, and try to keep my tomato plants alive; with my black thumb, the struggle is real. I also like camping, hiking, and reading sci-fi.
