Jessica attended the University of Southern Maine for a short time before pursuing her equestrian dreams. She is an accomplished equestrian – having trained in both the United States and Europe.

Jessica has trained and titled her own dogs in Conformation, Agility, Obedience, and Rally.
Jessica’s gifts and talents began to cultivate at an early age when a local equine veterinarian recognized her intuitive gifts and her ability to share the thoughts, emotions, energy, and physical sensations that the horses were experiencing. Over the years she continued to hone those skills and pursue training in various holistic healing modalities including but not limited to; the art of utilizing healing crystals and gemstones, meditation, Kundalini Yoga, Reiki, the Law of Attraction, energy-based healing, and healing with plant-based medicine. She is a classically trained homeopath and Certified Life Coach, applying her spiritual background to the coaching and mentoring services she provides. Jessica draws great influence and inspiration from Don Miguel Ruiz, Don Miguel Ruiz Jr, Marianne Williamson, Brené Brown, Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Rumi, Ayurveda, and other spiritual teachers and philosophies. Over the years she has attended and received certification from numerous seminars, clinics, conventions, and courses.
In the fall of 2005 Jessica relocated from Boston, Massachusetts to the tropical island of Puerto Rico where she lived on the border of the El Yunque Rainforest, just a few miles from some of the most gorgeous ocean beaches in the world. Channeling the incomparable energy of the sea, she dedicated herself to her spiritual work. With the support and encouragement of her dear friend and mentor, Sheryl Kaminski – Jessica began to accept clients. She will always be grateful to Sheryl for believing in her and encouraging her to create a sense of meaning and purpose by sharing her gifts and talents with others. Sheryl passed away in 2012; and her spirit and energy will always be a part of The Holistic Being.
In 2007 Jessica was a guest speaker at the Fédération Cynologique International Latin American World Dog Show where she presented her work to judges and officials from all over the world. Her work has been featured in Dogs in Review, the Whole Dog Journal, the Australian Shepherd Journal, and NT News of Australia. She was a guest writer for Sailing Magazine and was interviewed for their podcast on health and safety procedures to follow when sailing with your dog. In 2018 Jessica began a regular column as the Alternative Modalities Editor for the award-winning Breed Magazine the Australian Shepherd Journal. Her column, Alternatives, is published bi-monthly. You can read published articles about and/or by Jessica and her work on the THB in Print page.
In the fall of 2012 Jessica returned to her home State of Maine. Nestled in the Maine woods she resides there with her husband, nephew, horses, dogs, kitties, and a myriad of forest critters that like to consider her homestead – “home”. Jessica is in a constant pursuit of holistic and spiritual knowledge and wisdom - promoting health, happiness, love, connectedness, compassion, and an overall sense of well-being. As her own journey of enlightenment has evolved, so has her work. The universe is consistently opening new pathways and expanding the depths of which her work can go. And exactly like energy - The Holistic Being, LLC is not contained by distance, space and time.
Welcome to The Holistic Being, LLC.
Taffe McFadden & Champion Galilee's Pure of Spirit,
the top winning Giant Schnauzer of all time.
2008 was one of the most incredible years of my life. My Giant Schnauzer "Spirit" and I traveled all over the States competing in AKC Dog Shows and achieving the title of Number 1 AKC All-Breed Dog in the country. This was not only exciting but very hard for the both of us. We could never have done it without the help and healing of Jessica Montañez. Not only did she keep me on the right spiritual track, she was in constant contact with Spirit. Even though Spirit was born a show dog, she needed fine tuning all the time. I could sense things that would upset her and Jess would help me work through them. The team effort that Jess produced was amazing and will always be a gift that I will remember. She has helped with the next dog that I am showing as well and I will keep in close contact from now on for any forks in the road that come up.
Bless you Jess!
