Heather Rodman, RN
Heather is from Alamosa, CO and moved to Fruita in 2018 with her husband and 3 kids. She has been an RN since 2009 and started out in a pediatric clinic, moved to a med/surg unit to expand her knowledge and skill set, and after 2 years of that, settled into labor and delivery where she continues to work part time. Her heart will forever have a place there, as “there are moments during labor where I can feel souls connecting and there’s nothing like it.”
She started working at IMCWC in July 2022 administering IV therapies. “I had been on a search for a practice like this for many years as my interest for functional medicine in my own life started to grow. The moment I walked in, I just knew I had to be a part of it somehow. The staff here are like a family. Everyone cares for each other as well as the patients like I’ve never seen before. Even more impressive, the patients care about their health and work hard to maintain and or improve every day.”
She enjoys helping people who want to help themselves, whether that be anti aging, metabolic health, physical fitness or mental health. “I plan to continue to learn and grow in the functional medicine world for many years to come.”
Lisa Rieman, RN
Lisa originates from California, where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Education. Soon after she found a calling to pursue nursing. Her biggest influence is her older sister, also an RN, where she encouraged her to fulfill her goal. Lisa went on to receive her Associates Degree of Nursing in 2003.
Ironically enough, Lisa landed her first nursing job alongside her sister in southern California in the Labor and Delivery Unit, where she found her passion. Twenty years later, she continues to work as a labor and delivery nurse.
Besides nursing, health and wellness has always been important in all aspects of Lisa’s life. She knew early on she wanted to pursue that through nursing somehow. When she was offered a position here at IMC to specialize in IV therapies, she was excited to say the least. Lisa says, “It is so refreshing to be a part of such an amazing and knowledgeable team who is passionate about holistic care and helping patients achieve overall wellness.”

They also serves as clinical educators, helping our patients with guidelines on prescription and natural therapies as well as review of food allergy results.
She enjoys the variety of duties within her job that make everyday so enjoyable. Whether that be assisting with cosmetic procedures or injections, food allergy testing, low dose immunotherapy, weight loss, HRT or thyroid education. “Every patient is so unique and I feel blessed to be a part of each patients journey.” In the future she intends to further her education and knowledge in functional medicine and nutrition.
