Jodi Kaldestad joined Gratl and Company in May 2021 as a paralegal. She is completing the final practicum requirement of Capilano University’s Paralegal diploma program.

Jodi has a wealth of experience managing a cardiac research lab at the University of Illinois at Chicago, supporting mRNA research in the biotech industry in Vancouver, working as a birth doula and advocating for the needs of women and families in the complex area of maternal health. After two intensive years (both on the Dean’s List) studying procedural and substantive law at Capilano University, Jodi is invigorated and excited to advance the interests of marginalized and vulnerable populations.

Jodi lives in beautiful Port Moody, British Columbia, with her husband, two daughters and three cats. A former photographer, she still loves the creative outlet of photography, capturing the good, the bad and   the ugly in everyday life.
