She completed a rotating nutrition internship at The University of Arkansas for Medical Science and the VA Medical Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. Dr. Dunlap practiced as a Registered Dietitian with advanced certification in Nutritional Support in critical care and trauma. After practicing several years at the Elvis Presley Trauma Center in Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Dunlap made the decision to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. She felt this was a way to marry two passions – medicine and animals. Dr. Dunlap went on to earn her DVM from Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. Dr. Dunlap has practiced small animal medicine in Collierville and more recently in Downtown and Midtown Memphis. 1/5 Dr. Dunlap completed advanced training in acupuncture from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. She enjoys all aspects of small animal medicine including surgery, critical care, and internal medicine. Some of her favorite patients are geriatric old souls. The decision to return to her roots practicing medicine in Collierville, Tennessee was an easy one because she knows the community is so welcoming and the Kelsey Canine Medical Center is top-notch. Dr. Dunlap lives on a small farm surrounded by horses, goats, chickens, geese, and a special turkey named George. She is married to Alex and has 2 children, Hannah and Will, who happen to be twins (same litter). Her best friend is Sunny, her Border Collie mix.
