About Me

Jodi Gorman : Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist in the Boston area

I am a Registered Dietitian / Licensed Nutritionist living in Lincoln, Massachusetts with my husband and 2 daughters. I was born and raised in Montreal, Canada, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from McGill University, followed by a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics. I moved to Cambridge, MA after completing my studies in Montreal and began working as a clinical dietitian at Lawrence General Hospital, specializing in Intensive and Cardiac care and Renal nutrition. Over the past fifteen years, I have worked in many different clinical long term care settings and have become specialized in nutrition for people with Huntington’s Disease, psychiatric illness and Multiple Sclerosis.

CaptureMy latest passion is relaying practical information to parents of preschoolers and school age children on topics such as USDA nutrition guidelines, healthy lunch box and snack ideas and portion sizes appropriate for children. I have been conducting seminars for the parents and teachers in preschools and daycare centers in the Boston area on these topics. I will also visit busy families in their homes to plan personalized menus, provide supermarkets lists and supportive guidance in making positive changes for the entire household.

I am also a writer and nutrition consultant for Dietitians of New England, www.donediet.org. In addition to my interest in nutrition I am a trained  yoga teacher in the Raja Ashtanga discipline and I have a strong yoga practice of my own. I am the co-founder of “From the Mat to the Table – The Yoga of Conscious Eating”, a workshop based system emphasizing the connection between yoga, meditation and eating with conscious awareness.

I am currently consulting for The Boston Home, a NonProfit facility in Dorchester, MA, where I perform nutrition assessments, plan menus and hold monthly nutrition discussion groups for residents with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological disorders. I am especially interested in the link between Vitamin D deficiency and Multiple Sclerosis and am working with the clinical team in the development of protocols for this population.
