Erin Square

Erin Merritt, PharmD – Owner

Hello! My name is Erin Merritt and I am the owner of MA Clinical Services. I also am the owner and managing pharmacist at Modern Apothecary, an independent pharmacy located in Downtown Kenosha. I am a graduate of Midwestern University, where I earned my doctor of pharmacy degree. I opened Modern Apothecary in 2014, and have enjoyed seeing the business grow over the years (more patients, more staff, new building!), which is why I am excited to be starting this new venture at MA Clinical Services.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my children, husband, and two German Shepherds, reading, and gardening.

Hannah Square

Hannah Sorensen, BSN, RN

Hi! My name is Hannah and I am the registered nurse at MA Clinical Services. I am a graduate of the consortial baccalaureate nursing program at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and am currently pursuing my masters degree from Herzing University. Before joining MA Clinical Services, I gained nursing experience in ICU, step-down, and medical/surgical/telemetry departments in Kenosha and Milwaukee hospitals. I am a Kenosha native (born and raised!). I am passionate about wholistic, complementary, and integrative healthcare options for patients, and am excited to help you with your weight-loss journey and overall health.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, and being outdoors (walks, hikes, kayaking, you name it!)

Kristen Dietitian

Kristen Bennington, MS, RD, CD

Hi there! I’m Kristen, the registered dietitian working with MA Clinical Services.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in 2014 with a bachelor’s in human biology-Nutritional Sciences and completed my applied practice dietetic internship in 2016, also through UWGB. I earned my master’s degree in clinical nutrition through the University of Wisconsin-Madison in May 2022. I began my career as a dietitian in 2016 at Aurora Medical Center Kenosha where I worked as a clinical dietitian in the hospital and provided nutrition counseling to clients in the outpatient clinic. I have experience providing nutrition education on a variety of topics including weight management, eating disorders, diabetes, gastrointestinal issues, kidney disease, and bariatric surgery. Since 2021 I have been working at Aurora St Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee, working as a dietitian on the gastrointestinal, post-surgical floor. My goal is to provide my patients with the knowledge and the tools to make healthy, sustainable changes to their diet and lifestyle. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, knitting, biking, running, doing fitness classes, and spending time with my fiancé and cats.

Hello! I am Christina Vitkus and I am a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner working with MA Clinical Services as a medical weight loss provider. I am a Kenosha native and have practiced in this area as a Registered Nurse and then NP for 12 years. I have worked in Family Medicine, Urgent Care, and presently work in a local Gynecology Clinic. I love people and love to get to know them during my clinical visits. I enjoy sharing my passion for wellness and daily physical activity/movement when it is appropriate to the patient’s medical status and abilities. I am very excited to develop a collaborative health plan with individuals of all ages and backgrounds and look forward to meeting you! When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children and doing my daily workouts.

Alyssa Personal Trainer

Alyssa Fox – Personal Trainer

Hi, my name is Alyssa, and I am the ACE certified personal trainer partnering with MA Clinical Services. I have had many health issues and seasons of life that made exercise hard, so I understand the struggle of finding a routine that works. I strive to lead with compassion and empathy, and enjoy collaborating to find what routines will work for YOU. My goal is to help create routines that will last long term, and teach you when you need to know to be confident in any gym setting. A bit about me — I enjoy traveling and trying new things, and love to spend time with my husband and 2 small kids.
