Dr. Jennifer Nunnery followed a winding path to small animal medicine at Family Pet Health. She grew up in Murfreesboro, attending Riverdale High School. She attended Hollins College in Roanoke, Virginia and graduated with a BA in Biology in 1998. When she started veterinary school at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, she expected to become an equine veterinarian. Later in school, she found an affinity for small animal medicine and surgery, but also an interest in public health. After graduation in 2002, she participated in a fellowship at The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, GA. In Atlanta, she met and married her husband Mark. After completing the fellowship they moved to Chattanooga, TN for a short time before finding their way to State College, PA. In State College, she worked at Centre Animal Hospital for nearly 11 years. Though it was difficult to leave her clients and colleagues at the Centre, she was feeling a pull to return home to Tennessee. In 2017 she and Mark, her daughter Allison, two Golden retrievers and two cats made the move to Murfreesboro.

After working as a relief veterinarian in many practices around Middle TN, Dr. Nunnery has found a home at Family Pet Health. The Fear Free philosophy fits easily with her natural practice style. Dr. Nunnery loves cats and big dogs but feels that every breed has its special representatives.
