Her recent film roles have included critically lauded turns in Cold Weather, Vacation!, and United 93.

In 2014, she portrayed FBI Agent Elizabeth Ferrell on the TV series Believe concurrently with her co-starring role as Dep. Siobhan Kelly in Banshee. In late 2015, Dunn began a recurring role as U.S. Marshal Allison Knight, on the NBC drama Blindspot. In 2016, she is playing Natalie an event planner on Almost There, airing on Audience. Also in 2016, Dunn guest-starred in the second episode of the CBS legal drama Bull.
