Leadership Team

Dr. Greg Mongeon, DC

President & Chief Visionary Officer

HI, I’m Dr. Greg. I want to share with you a little bit about how Vitae started. For over 20 years I have owned and been a part of many medical practices across the country. Each practice allowed me to grow as a practitioner and as a person.

Having 5 kids of my own and an incredible wife who has stuck by me through all the moves and changes, I began to realize how important it is to have roots. Being a part of a community, my kids’ schools, and our local church has allowed me to be grounded in who I am as a business owner.

Vitae, which means “life” in Latin, began to help those who have been turned away or overlooked by the traditional medical community. I will listen, my team will listen – we will get to the root of what is depleting your health. Our bodies were created for longevity, let’s help you find it! 

Jen Flynn,  CEO

Chief Executive Officer

Jen brings extensive experience in the health and wellness industry, having graduated from St. Catherine University in 1995. Starting from direct healthcare work, she transitioned to a managerial position in 2005. Her determination and business acumen drove her to continuously learn and develop in the field. Jen has played a pivotal role in the growth of six companies since 2012. In 2020, Jen teamed up with Dr. Greg, who was the sole personal at the time. Together they have created what is now Vitae Functional Medicine, the largest private functional medicine practice in Minnesota.

Outside of Vitae, she and her husband Gene have been happily married for 25 years and are blessed with two wonderful children. Jen’s dedication to learning and leadership extends beyond her professional life. She guides a significant women’s group at her community church and is pursuing a certificate in Ministry.

Practitioners

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.

Kaylynn Kenutis, APRN-CNS

Nurse Practitioner

Hi, I’m Kaylynn! I was in high school when I first felt the calling to medicine and was shown the significance and value of being a healthcare provider that truly loves and cares for their patients. I have now been practicing for 12 years, spending most of my career working with patients who have disabilities and helping them achieve their most functional potential. Joining the Vitae team, I am beyond excited to continue to focus on helping clients regain and maintain optimal health and functionality. Experiencing my own health concerns and autoimmune diagnosis, my journey of healing has increased my passion for helping equip others to understand their root cause and take control of their health and lifestyle as well. 

When I am not working I find so much joy in spending time with my husband and our sweet 1 year old. We love to do anything active and even better if it is outside. We are blessed to have both of our families nearby and fill much of our time with them.
