She is a Registered Naturopathic Doctor in the State of Minnesota. She has a Diplomate of Acupuncture from the NCCAOM, and is licensed in acupuncture in the State of Minnesota.

While undergoing a rigorous academic program of concurrent studies in Naturopathic and Classical Chinese Medicine, Dr. Montgomery completed clinical training that included a three-year mentorship in women’s health. During her Chinese Medicine training, she continued to see a high volume of patients with a range of chronic conditions, including cancer, MS, Parkinson’s, and other autoimmune conditions. Additionally, Dr. Montgomery completed training in Holistic Pelvic Care, a therapy developed and taught by Tami Kent, PT, to address chronic pelvic issues.
Dr. Montgomery came to Naturopathic and Classical Chinese medicine via her experience as a collegiate athlete and coach. Her personal experience with sports-related injuries led her to explore various approaches to optimize her body’s recovery. She became interested in learning how to utilize nutrition, movement and other forms of natural healing to keep the body in top shape and prevent injuries. After graduating with a B.S. in Community Education, Spanish and Latin American Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1999, Dr. Montgomery spent the next six years as a collegiate and youth soccer coach. During that time she found her passion in teaching young people about a balanced approach to playing and life through a more profound understanding of fitness and nutrition.
