Erik Kelly
Bio coming soon.

Marvin Randall
A medical school graduate from St. Georges, University of Grenada, Marvin also has a master’s in public health and a master’s in Business Association in Healthcare Management. After 1 year of medical residency in Internal Medicine, he felt a calling to become a medical doctor with a God-centered practice. He currently is on the medical staff at Uchee Pines as a part of accepting that call. While at Uchee Pines, he has enjoyed learning the natural, simple ways of curing diseases and being a witness to the healing that only the Great Physician can give. He looks forward to opportunities where God can use him as an instrument to heal others.

Adan Sanchez
Adan Sanchez’ presence at Uchee Pines Institute is a fulfillment of a lifelong dream of becoming a Missionary Doctor. From a young age, his desire to serve God in this role was inspired by the story of Adventist Medical Missionaries. The principle of service to others was deeply instilled in Dr. Sanchez, who was raised in a Seventh-day Adventist family. He was academically prepared at Montemorelos University School of Medicine in northern Mexico. However, in his last year of medical school the desire to engage in Preventive Medicine was awakened. He obtained his M.D. in 2013. After graduation, his dream in part became a reality as he dedicated his time to serving the residents of several communities at a small clinic in rural Mexico.  The tremendous medical issues facing the patients fueled in him a desire to broaden his medical experience in Preventive Medicine to better serve people. This resulted in his migration to the USA to further his training. Through a series of appointments and divine intervention, he joined the medical staff of Uchee Pines where he continues to engage in researching Lifestyle Medicine and Medical Missionary work. He enjoys the challenge of not only managing illnesses that plague our world, but also that of identifying their causes. He is most grateful to fulfill his life purpose at the Uchee Pines Lifestyle Center as he uses God’s plan to help others experience Spiritual, Emotional, and Physical Healing.

Ashwin Sukumaran
Ashwin was born and raised in Maryland, USA and has been at Uchee Pines Institute since 2014. He is currently serving as the Administrator of the Lifestyle Center and as one of the providers on the medical staff.  He spends his time preaching, teaching and helping lifestyle guests in lifestyle centers, hospitals, churches, and communities around the world. God has opened doors for him to reach out to the professional community as he also trains physicians and other health care professionals in Christ’s method of healing. Additionally, he finds more opportunity to help church members to get involved in ministry through ASI Southern Union Chapter as VP of Gulf States Conference. Though each opportunity comes with trials and sacrifices, he considers himself richly blessed to work alongside the Great Physician, seeing miracles every day, especially the miracle of healing in his own heart. Ashwin’s heavy burden is to see God’s Remnant people take up the great and prophetic Gospel Medical Missionary Work, which the Lord used to personally help Ashwin become a Seventh-day Adventist Christian who finds all he needs in a deep and sincere relationship with Jesus.

Seeing a greater need for prevention rather than surgery, and desiring to know more about medical missionary work, Dr. Kaylene completed the LIGHT health evangelism training course. Subsequently, God created opportunities for Dr. Kaylene to join in with dedicated people doing medical missionary training and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
