Veterinarian and co-founder of The Animal Wellness & Performance Clinic
BVSc, PgCert(VBM), CCRP (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner)
Montana wanted to be a veterinarian since she was 4 years old. She completed her Bachelor of Veterinary Science through the University of Sydney before working at a mixed practice vet clinic in South Australia.
She then moved to the United Kingdom to work as a locum veterinarian and it is during this time she realised that her passion in the veterinary world was specifically in animal rehabilitation and canine behaviour. While overseas she undertook further training in canine behaviour through Absolute Dogs UK, becoming an accredited Pro Dog Trainer.
Since returning to Australia, Montana had pursued her desire to work as a rehabilitation veterinarian. She has worked as the Head Rehabilitation Veterinarian at Illawarra Animal Rehabilitation while completing the Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) course through the University of Tennessee.
Having grown up in the Southern Highlands, Montana is keen to bring these animal rehabilitation and behaviour services to the region and has joined forces with Rachel Mahoney (Canine Osteopath) to establish the Animal Wellness and Performance Clinic in the Southern Highlands, NSW.
When not working, Montana will be found either in the agility arena running her two Border Collies, Tilly and Kozi, or in the dog room working on their conditioning/fitness programs. She is a country girl at heart and looks forward to providing these services in her home region of the Southern Highlands.
