Dr. Jenna Montana of Cultivate Wellness


Dr. Jenna Montana is the founder and provider at Cultivate Wellness in Roanoke. My specialty is Functional Medicine, as well as being an integrative nutritionist, and certified acupuncturist. I am passionate about women's health, and conditions impacted by hormonal imbalance such as infertility, post-partum depression, chronic pain, fatigue, and gastrointestinal disorders. My master's degree in clinical nutrition allowed me to focus heavily on therapeutic use of foods and botanicals to support conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as numerous other gut-based conditions that affect children. I believe in working with a network of practitioners to cover all unique aspects of a person's health, and that the only way to serve others at our greatest capacity is to communicate, which is why NRV Birth Collective is a wonderful place to be.
