Siobhan Stolle Dunnavant (born September 12, 1964) is an American medical doctor and Republican politician, currently serving as a member of the Senate of Virginia. She is the sister of Delegate Chris Stolle and former Senator Ken Stolle.
Dr. Siobhan Dunnavant represents Virginia's 12th Senate District, covering portions of western Henrico and Hanover Counties.
Dunnavant practices medicine as an OB-GYN and is the only doctor serving in the Virginia Senate.
In 2015, federal authorities launched an investigation into Dunnavant, after a complaint was filed by conservative blogger Tom White, alleging that she used her private patient information to solicit contributions, volunteers, and votes. The Department of Health and Human Services found that "Dunnavant's decision to share patient contact information with her Senate campaign and its direct-mail business was 'impermissible' under federal HIPAA law." However, sanctions were ultimately not imposed.
