Jodi Caddell CFNP
Jodi formally joins Richmond Integrative & Functional Medicine in November 2023, but her experience with both Dr. Hartman and Dr. Jenski extends several years. Jodi's journey from a successful career in music and arts management to a dedicated nurse practitioner is a testament to her belief that it's never too late to make a life change.
Jodi’s shift towards healthcare began with motherhood. As she raised her two beautiful daughters, she found herself yearning for a more meaningful career. She wanted to make a tangible difference in people's lives. This desire led her back to school to study nursing, a decision that was further reinforced when a close friend was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Witnessing her friend's journey from illness to remission through dietary changes sparked Jodi's interest in the healing power of food.
Her interest grew into a passion when her husband was diagnosed with Celiac disease. Once again, she saw the transformative power of lifestyle change, and she knew she wanted to help others experience the same healing. This led her to further her education and become a nurse practitioner, allowing her to build long-term relationships with her patients and guide them towards healthier lifestyles.
While working in family practice, Jodi met Dr. Aaron Hartman and was introduced to the world of integrative and functional medicine. Despite her understanding of diet and health, she realized she wasn’t yet as healthy as she could be. She often felt fatigued and noticed her memory wasn’t as sharp as it used to be. Determined to improve her own health, Jodi first began working with Dr. Christian Jenski. Then, building on that experience, she began her training through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM).
Now, with her daughters away at college, Jodi continues to learn and grow. She brings her passion for health, her deep understanding of the healing power of food, and her commitment to patient care to RIFM. She’s excited to help her patients discover their own path to wellness and guide them towards living their healthiest lives.
Jodi’s journey is a reminder that it’s never too late to start something new, to grow, and to make a difference. Whether you’re dealing with fatigue, discomfort, or other health issues, Jodi is here to walk alongside you on your path to better health.
