Anita Kellam, DNP, FNP-C

My name is Anita Kellam and I am the owner of the Athletic Nurse Practitioner.™ I’ve been a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner, since 2008 and worked as a registered nurse for 8 years before that. Healthcare and fitness has been a huge part of my life since elementary school. I maintain a practice in rural Montana at Northern Montana Family Medical Center.
When I was a kid I was a competitive swimmer and even swam at the master’s level until I had my first child. I’m also a wife, a busy mom with school aged kids, fitness junky, & paleo foodie. Helping inspire others to live a well balanced life, while eating a whole foods diet and exercising is the goal!
I have spent the past 15 years pursuing my professional degrees, raising 3 children and devoting myself to my family. Once I completed my doctoral degree I made the decision to improve my health and fitness.
I have an online fitness coaching business and am a Certified Sugar Detox Coach in addition to my clinical practice.

Through the Athletic Nurse Practitioner, I am able to provide virtual fitness and nutrition solutions that emphasize the evidence found in science using a functional medicine approach.

When I first started my professional career I was a high risk OB/NICU nurse in a busy Montana town. My husband had a ranch dream and decided to move us to a small town in the middle of the state. I decided to go back to school and advance my career as a doctorly prepared nurse practitioner. The first 4 years after graduation were spent providing healthcare on a local Indian Reservation serving their healthcare needs. This including diabetes and women's health, general family practice, & emergency medicine. During this time I found my passion for preventative medicine and began to integrate a functional medicine approach with typical western medicine. I have a LOVE for learning and spend at least 30 minutes a day filling my brain with new, functional health information to bring to my practice.
