During her fellowship, she trained under recognized leaders and cutting-edge researchers in the Sleep Medicine field at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Boston Children’s Hospital. After completing her fellowship in 2016, she stayed on as faculty at Beth Israel Deaconess and served as an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Gunn has particular clinical interests in the diagnosis and management of circadian rhythm sleep disorders, as well as in the treatment of central and complex sleep disordered breathing. She favors non-pharmacologic methods of treating insomnia with the goal of helping patients to reduce or eliminate their reliance on sedative medications. She is also well-practiced in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, idiopathic hypersomnia, restless leg syndrome, and parasomnia.
Dr. Gunn recognizes that each patient has a unique set of values and life circumstances influencing their treatment goals. She believes in listening closely to patients and gaining a full understanding of their lifestyle, priorities, and other medical history. She integrates this information into an individualized treatment plan for managing their sleep disorder in a realistic and practical manner.
