Dr. Ben Sevlie

Dr. Ben Sevlie

Co-founder, owner of Apex Family Chiropractic and Chiropractor

Dr. Ben Sevlie grew up in Red Wing, Minnesota as the son of a chiropractor and has been fortunate enough to receive chiropractic care since birth. After graduating Dr. Sevlie went on to play collegiate basketball at a technical college in Minnesota. During this time he decided he wanted to pursue being a chiropractor. He later moved on to Northwestern Health Science University where he received his Doctorate of Chiropractic. Upon graduation he and his wife moved down to the sunny state of FL and spent some time traveling together. This is when they decided that they would make Minnesota their home.

Dr. Sevlie is one of seven children, so family is very important to him and a large part of his life. With every free moment that he has he can be found playing beach volleyball, Olympic weight–lifting, serving at River Valley Church and spending time with his beautiful wife, Laci and their three children, Brooklyn, Liberty and Zion. Dr. Sevlie is passionate about chiropractic as he has seen the impact that it has had on his own life and the people he has worked with. He now is very eager and excited to educate and inform the communities of Apple Valley, Farmington, Lakeville and Rosemount about living life to its fullest potential!

Emma Zwieg

Emma Zwieg

Chiropractic Assistant

Emma grew up in South Minneapolis, near Lake Nokomis with her three brothers. After high school, she moved to Duluth where she attended University of Minnesota and studied Psychology and Biology. Working with families and kids has always been at the center of whatever she does along with health and wellness.

In 2018, Emma and her husband Ted moved from Lino Lakes to Lakeville. Her desire to support families in their health and wellness journey led her to Apex Chiropractic. She was already a firm believer in chiropractic care, but it wasn’t until she experienced Torque Release Technique that she realized how much of an impact consistent, neurological based, chiropractic care could make. She no longer suffers from sciatic nerve pain, fatigue or difficulties sleeping! Emma enjoys putting her creativity to work with a collaborative team while also supporting practice members on their health journey.

When she’s not in the office, she enjoys crafting, Pilates, reading and spending time with family. Emma and her husband enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors. They have two dogs, a cat and are now expecting their first baby, July 2021!

She was very involved with all sports from a young age and later went on to play collegiate volleyball for the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota where she graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. She met Dr. Sevlie, while playing beach volleyball and knew right away that he was the one. Shortly after getting married they moved down to FL to work and travel.

She has spent the last several years working as an ER nurse, currently working at the University of Minnesota and is ready to move forward with her experience joining her husband Dr. Sevlie in the office. She is passionate about teaching young moms, pregnant moms, children, athletes, middle aged, elderly and everything in between about living their lives to their God given potential!

Kristin Volkman

Kristin Volkman

Chiropractic Assistant

Kristin grew up on a farm in Barney, ND where she enjoyed adventuring in the outdoors as much as possible. After high school, Kristin moved to Minneapolis, MN where she attended North Central University and received her Bachelor of Arts in Evangelism & Church Planting and became a credentialed pastor with the Assemblies of God.

In 2016, she had a health crisis which led her to leave her job and focus on her health. During this time, she married her now husband Mike and found Apex Chiropractic. It was when Kristin came to Apex where she learned the body’s great ability to heal from above-down, inside- out. Understanding this new approach, along with receiving consistent chiropractic adjustments has transformed her health and lifestyle! As you might have guessed, she enjoys educating people about experiencing true health from the inside-out and seeing lives changed!

Outside the office, you can find Kristin exploring MN’s hiking trails with her husband Mike and their adorable dog Charlie. Kristin also enjoys exploring coffee shops, building DIY projects, serving at Bethel’s Rock Church, and investing time with friends and family!
