Our Directors

D. Brent Montgomery, NHA
D. Brent Montgomery, NHA is the Executive Director of Canterfield of Clay County.  Brent grew up here in Northeast Florida, having first moved to Orange Park, FL with his family in May of 1974.  Moody Road was only a dirt road back then and the Orange Park mall was just being built.  His father was a Vice President at Baptist Medical Center Downtown and later entered the field of nursing home administration, which Brent followed on his own career path.  Since being licensed as a nursing home administrator in 1993, Brent has served as Administrator of nursing homes, assisted living communities and home care companies.   

Brent graduated from Florida junior College (now Florida State College at Jacksonville) and went on to complete his bachelor’s of business administration degree at Mississippi State University.  Brent has also held professional licenses in both real estate and insurance.  He has a wealth of knowledge in the health care field, particularly senior healthcare.  He believes that physical exercise is the real “fountain of youth”.  He encourages senior adults to take control of their health through diet and exercise.  He developed his own weight loss plan and lost the weight he needed to improve his own health. 

Brent is an advocate for seniors health care over the past seven years, having lobbied our elected officials in Tallahassee over issues effecting senior adults.  He has worked along side our state association, The Florida Health Care Association to bring about changes in our laws to help our communities thrive and prosper. 

Brent believes in “MBWA-management by walking around”.  So you will see him often out in the community among the residents and staff taking care of any concerns and making the community the best it can be.  He enjoys golf and time with family.  He has two children who he is most proud of, Bryce and Alyssa.  Bryce has Down Syndrome and has appeared on “First Coast News” and in “The Florida Times-Union” with Tim Tebow’s event, “Night to Shine” and his own high school prom story. 

Brent will no doubt, make Canterfield of Clay County worthy of the Canterfield brand.  “Serving senior adults has been a rewarding career and I want to continue to use my talents and abilities to improve the lives of seniors in our community.”
