Ashley Ceithaml, DNP

Ashley is from Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra Beach. She is the daughter of our very own Jan Ely, ARNP! Her father, Dr. Eric Ceithaml, was Chief of Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery at Wolfson Children’s Hospital and had more than 45 years in his field.

Ashley received her love of medicine and academia from both her parents. She attended Jacksonville University receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2013, and her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in Family Medicine in 2021. During her 8-year doctorate program, she worked as an RN at Baptist Medical Center, providing excellent care for postoperative oncology patients and various acute and chronic conditions on women’s medical surgery/oncology floor. Ashley is certified by ANCC and AANP.

Ashley’s Capstone project for her doctorate was Body Image Distress and Post Mastectomy Women. Ashley and Jan are both breast cancer survivors, and this drives their passion for women’s health. Ashley grew up around this practice, as she was in middle school when Jan began working with Dr. Garcia, so it’s a unique “full circle” that brings her to River City OBGYN.

I have been with Dr. Garcia and this office for over 34 years and I love this office and the staff, everyone is so kind. Jan Ely is awesome and is always concerned about how I have been doing and she remembers my issues from last time. Dr. Wells is really nice too. Love this office man, not going anywhere.

  I love the staff of river city. My whole pregnancy went smoothly with these great people. Kendra Gillespie is a gem of a person, she treated me so well with all the complications I had. The sonography lady gave a detailed explanation of the baby parts. I loved both of them…On delivery day Gillespie took utmost care of me even when it’s 10:30 pm in the night and nurses in Baptist helped me for safe delivery. I would recommend this place for people who are expecting babies❤️
My sincere thanks to doctor Gillespie.

  I took my elderly neighbor to this office, they were all kind to her and treated her kindly. They were amazing and work with you to make sure your appointment time works for you a well as them and they don’t leave you sitting there like many doctors office’s do. I will definitely recommend them during these unsettling times.
