In her personal life, Dr. Brunner enjoys hiking, reading, and working for the community as an active member of the Lake Placid Rotary Club.  She and her husband, Frank, adore spending time playing with, and chasing after, their daughter, Aurora, their son, Griffin, and their littlest son, Isaac. Aurora’s favorite hikes are Silver Lake Mountain and Owl’s Head Peak, and she is a big fan of dancing in the Nutcracker every year. Griffin’s favorite activity is anything related to basketball.  Isaac loves knocking over anything upright, and he’s recently developed an impressive taste for mashed potatoes and gravy. Frank is a teacher at Lake Placid High School and Middle School, where Dr. Brunner occasionally helps him coach at Science Olympiad practices.

Dr. Brunner is proud to be part of the Lake Placid and Adirondack communities. If you have any questions or would like to contact her for another reason, please feel free to send an email to [email protected].
