Dr. Jeanna Montgomery
My own ‘soul dog’, ‘heart dog’, ‘spirit animal’ pet came to me in my early 20’s. She was a peke-cocker cross adopted from the Dallas Animal Shelter named Halo and she became my reason for pursuing Veterinary Medicine. I know what it is like to want to keep a beloved pet as happy and healthy as possible in return for the joy and love they bring to your life. I adore my career and this profession. Serving my clients and caring for their pets is truly my passion.
Preston Center Animal Clinic has been my second home since 1995. My first job here was to bathe dogs on Saturdays. Dr. Williams has been an invaluable mentor for me in veterinary medicine, business and leadership. I slowly worked my way up to Practice Owner in 2016 by way of Veterinary School at Texas A&M (2006), VCA Sunnyvale and Banfield in Allen. I also spent many formative years learning veterinary medicine at the Emergency Animal Clinic in Dallas.
My family that supports me and makes all this possible include my husband Cliff Brooks, a Firefighting teacher for Garland ISD, and two daughters Tori (2nd grade) and Juli (Pre-K). Of course we have pets! Keizer the German Shepard (pictured), Obi the Labradoodle, Widdy the Goldendoodle (pictured) and BK (Bobby Kitty) the cat. I am sure we are not done adding pets as my second grader is asking for a snake, chinchilla, rabbit, gecko and hermit crab…..oh my…
Our team philosophy is simple- we take the best CARE OF our patients and we listen to and CARE ABOUT our clients.

After being found by an employee during the summer of 2006 as a young, mangy puppy wandering down Marsh Lane (his namesake), Marshall quickly worked his way into the hearts of all who met him, including his future mom, and became the unofficial mascot of the clinic.
Recovering from the recent loss of her beloved Daisy, Ellen agreed to take Marshall home overnight, and the temporary arrangement quickly became permanent as Marshall found his forever home with her.
After celebrating his eleventh birthday in 2017 (of course commemorated with a birthday party at the clinic including cake, ice cream, and party hats), Marshall has entered partial retirement, only coming to the office a few days a week.
His hobbies include patrolling his Preston Center territory, working for treats by performing his “$99 trick,” helping his mom clean up the kitchen after she bakes, and donning fancy outfits.
