Jo Anne Montgomery, ARNP
On staff since June 1983
Language (Other than English): Spanish
Jo Began working at Seattle Children's in 1983 as a staff nurse. After completing the UW Nurse Practitioner program she moved to the ER and then to the Odessa Brown Clinic in 1991, where she provides primary care.
In 2004 she started a circus school to provide a non competetive exercise venue for children and adults. She feels that regular exercise in a safe and supportive environment nurtures both physical and emotional health. The school is proud to say that since opening it has provided tuition scholarships to every child that needs one. The School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts is now the largest in the United States. Circus skills adapt well to differently-abled students, and Jo works with a number of Seattle Childrens patients with special needs.
I have been bringing my girls to Jo for more than 10 years now... WE LOVE HER!! She has helped us manage my daughter's asthma, calmed me down when I was seeking reassurance when my youngest was born jaundiced, and has just listened to all my concerns. She is positive, kind and knowledgeable. Thank you Jo! We appreciate you.
