Emily Anderson, APRN-CNS

Nurse Practitioner

Hi, I’m Emily! I started my career over 15 years ago as a registered nurse in the intensive care unit, which is where I learned the importance of delivering individualized care. In 2013, I graduated from California State University with my Master’s Degree and subsequently worked as a nurse practitioner in the ICU and palliative care settings before finding my calling in functional medicine. I love the whole person approach to functional healthcare and see it as my mission to create tailored treatment plans that address the root causes of illness.

I am a wife and mom to three amazing kids, which is an answer to many prayers! My own fertility struggles brought about my passion for natural reproductive health and fertility. Through research, I have recognized the impact of our environment, lifestyle choices, and genetics on our wellbeing and the delicate balance of our hormones. I strive to empower my patients through education to take control of their health and lifestyle to ultimately achieve positive outcomes.

I have my BS in Exercise Sports Science and a Minor in Nutrition. I am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Certified Lyme Specialist.

Maribeth Baxter, CLS

CLS, Health & Wellness Coach

I’m a Turn Chronic Illness into Wellness Coach with an emphasis on the toll disease takes on emotional health. My joy is coaching people how to support their bodies so they can respond to wellness. I include mind-body nourishment coaching tools to enhance healing from the soul to the cell. Wellness is about our personal growth as well as our cells, mitochondria and diet!

No doubt, chronic illness is a “ride.” The challenges are intense. My coaching includes getting to the hidden wisdom of this miraculous adventure.

Matt Ellgen, C-HWC


I was born and raised in Minneapolis. My educational career took me from exercise science to becoming a Minnesota-licensed educator. I taught for years before taking a summer position working with rare diseases, eating disorders and disabilities. It was at that point I realized that new and alternative measures were needed to promote health and wellness. My passion for which continues today, nearly a decade later. I left my teaching career, recertified as a personal trainer and became a weight loss management specialist. This led me to become a graduate of the Health and Wellness Coaching program at Mayo Clinic. Faith is my inspiration and guides me on my own journey of well-being. Romans 8:38-39.

Clinical Operations Team

Jen Flynn, COO

Chief Operations Officer

Hi, I’m Jen. Working in health care for over 25+ years I’ve learned how important it is to have a roadmap to better health. With information overload it can feel overwhelming when you are dealing with a health issue. I’m grateful to join a company that truly puts the clients needs first and cares deeply for each and every person. 

I’ve had to experience my own health concerns and journey with Lyme disease. It can feel very lonely at times and make you question “who do I turn to?”. I’ve relied on my faith and digging deep inside to continue to fight for myself. Don’t ever take “no” for an answer. 

In my spare time I love spending time with my husband of 24 years, my 2 kids and my extended family.


Erin Hannon

Business Office Manager

Hi, I am Erin. I am the Business Office Manager at Vitae Functional Medicine.  My passion is to help our clients understand that when you do the work, results will follow. I’ve had to do a complete 180 for my health, I know it’s not an easy task. I hope that I can help you move through this journey and take some of that work load off your plate… or at least make it a little easier.  

Outside of work I love traveling with my husband and our 2 dogs.  We love road trips, hiking, snowboarding, anything outside in nature.

Eric Johnson

Marketing Strategist

Hi, I’m Eric. I come from a marketing and advertising background, but few opportunities have been as fulfilling as helping others to find the same hope and healing that Vitae helped my own family to find.

I understand the impact chronic illness can have on a family, and it makes me passionate about the work I do here at the clinic.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, learning new skills, and writing.

Ben Carlson

Marketing Specialist

Hi, I’m Ben. Since childhood, music, storytelling, and people have been my passions. Each of those avenues led me to pursue a degree in Film, and for the past several years I’ve worked in the commercial ad agency realm, with artists and influencers all around the world.

More recently, the importance of health, in both the physical and mental space, has become a large priority for me. I’ve battled a chronic illness since my teens. Working both with and for Vitae has been a blessing I never knew I needed.

Outside work, I enjoy gaming with friends, working out and meditation, and buying/selling through auctions sites like eBay.

Heidi White

Business Ofice Assistant & Marketing Specialist

Hi, I’m Heidi. Vitae has been such an integral part of my own healing journey and I am so excited to be a part of the team to help bring that healing to others! This clinic has been a gift to me and I hope it can bring you to a place of peace with your health as it has for me.

Outside of work I like to adventure with my 3 kids. I thrive on a good dose of making music or being in nature – hiking, camping, biking, backpacking, snowboarding, or throwing a ball around. 

Grace Brown

Executive Assistant & Marketing Specialist

Hi, I am Grace! I work with our operations and marketing team here at Vitae Functional Medicine. I am passionate about sharing the joy that I have with others and helping guide you the best that I can, in your journey with us at Vitae. I have a business degree from Crown College. I enjoy organization and working in the “details”. 

Outside of work, I love spending time outdoors, whether that is camping, swimming, hiking, or longboarding.  You can also find me working on a DIY project with my fiance for our wedding this August, or spending time with my family, friends, and my dog.
I pray that the Vitae team can bless you, and help you heal and grow!

Pam Fahrenkamp

Outside of work I love being creative…whether it is photography, flower gardening, sewing, or DIY-ing. I am a wife and mother of two kids, one who has flown the nest and the other a soon-to-be Senior. Then there is Bella, our Golden Retriever, who is always in need of love!
