Lauren Mann, MD | Third Year Resident

mannI'm originally from Huntsville, AL and have been in Alabama most of my life. I love playing soccer, hiking, shopping, craft breweries, and of course watching my Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturdays. I have a wonderful furbaby named Avery that is my favorite hiking buddy. 

I chose ETSU because of the residents and the location. The mountains here in East Tennessee are absolutely stunning and great for weekend hikes. Also, the residents here are really great and I knew I'd fit in well.

Mary "Khaki" Marquette, MD | Third Year Resident

marquetteI enjoy crafting, making my husband participate in DIY projects, working out to exercise videos because going to the gym is just too much to expect from me, adopting dogs, ordering too many things on Amazon, eating BBQ, forcing my son to smile for endless iPhone pictures, going on walks, and all things TJ Maxx.

I chose ETSU because I love the area of East Tennessee and the people in the program acted more like a family than coworkers. 

Undergrad: University of Central Arkansas and University of Arkansas
Medical School: University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences

I chose ETSU OB/GYN because of the fantastic people I met here and because I loved this area. 

Undergrad: University of Illinois - Chicago

 Taylor Salyer, MD | Second Year Resident


I chose ETSU because I loved the faculty and residents. Plus, they passed the "happy cry" test on my interview day, so I knew that I genuinely loved the people and the program. The location is beautiful as well, and seemed like a place I could call home.


Undergrad: University of Arkansas - Fayetteville
Med School: University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences

 Emily Spann, MD | Second Year Resident

spannI grew up in Knoxville, TN and have always loved living near and hiking in the Appalachian mountains. I am a big Alabama football fan. Roll Tide! I love going to the beach, when I can, and scuba diving. I recently got married and my husband and I have a sweet terrier named Topher. In my free time, I love cooking, group fitness classes, and going to concerts.

Before my M3 OB/GYN rotation at ETSU, I had no interest in the field. My experience with the residents and attendings quickly changed my mind. Everyone was so excited and willing to teach. I soon realized that the field of OB/GYN and the ETSU residency program were the best fit for me. I am able to remain close to my family in Knoxville and continue working with the patients in our region.

Undergrad: University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa
Med School: East Tennessee State / Quillen College of Medicine

 Jessica Walker, MD | Second Year Resident


The Program seems invested in creating an educational & supportive environment for the Residents.

I enjoy the close knit relationship among the Residents. I feel that I am a good fit for the program and it would be a privilege to become part of the ETSU OB/GYN Family.

Undergrad: East Tennessee State University
Med School: East Tennessee State / Quillen College of Medicine

 Brooke Benton, DO | First Year Resident

Brooke Benton, DO

I wanted to find a program where the faculty, staff, and residents are close knit. I also intend to work in the Appalachian region after residency, so it was important to me to train at a program that is serving the Applaclachian population. I am very invested in caring for underserved women and their families and I felt that the mission of this program aligned very closely with my personal goals.

Undergrad: Transylvania University, Lexington, KY
Med School: University of Pikeville - Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine

Natalie Broadway-Robertson, MD | First Year Resident

Natalie Broadway-Robertson, MD

My mission of meeting women's health needs in rural Appalachian regions is well-aligned with ETSU OB/GYN goals of providing care for this area. My heritage is deeply rooted in this mountain community and I intend to practice in the area.


Undergrad: University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill
Med School: The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, Greenville, NC

 Kara Weishaar, MD | First Year Resident

Kara Weishaar, MD

The smaller program and city attracted me, as I grew up in a small college town and always loved that atmosphere. The surrounding hills, forests, and mountains are beautiful and I look forward to hiking and exploring the area.


Undergrad: Concordia University, Seward, Nebraska
