Emily Kunstman

Emily Kunstman is a certified Physician Assistant who cares for patients with general neurology conditions. She was born in Joliet, IL, and grew up in the Chicago suburbs. She attended Lewis University in Romeoville, IL, and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Throughout this time, she worked as a CNA in long-term memory care and discovered her compassionate desire to care for others. After completing her undergraduate degree, she married her high school sweetheart, and together they moved to Memphis for her PA education at Christian Brothers University.

At CBU, she completed a clinical rotation at Semmes Murphey and developed a deep interest in neurology. In 2021, Emily graduated from PA school and accepted a position working with Dr. Lance Wright and Whitney Gatewood, PA-C. Emily is also a certified headache specialist.

Emily lives with her husband, a chef. In her spare time, she enjoys trying new foods, ice skating, and singing at her church.
