Dr. Montgomery is the Chief Executive Officer for the AKC Canine Health Foundation.

She holds a PhD from the University of North Carolina and DVM from North Carolina State University, where she also completed an anatomic pathology residency. Her research spans infectious disease, cancer, therapeutics, vaccines, biodevices, and cell-based technologies. Dr. Montgomery has served on the CHF Scientific Review Committee and Board of Directors. She has professional and personal interests in translating state-of-the-art diagnostics and therapies to veterinary medicine.

Dogs have played a central role throughout Dr. Montgomery’s life. Her family got their first Cairn Terrier when she was in the fourth grade and she was hooked, attending the annual Chicago Dog Show and reading Dog Fancy magazine cover-to-cover each month. She continues to enjoy attending dog events and provides veterinary care for elite racing sled dogs. She shares her home with Airedale Terriers, including a finished Champion.
