Jody Herman, registered dietitian and eating disorder specialist

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist. I have a background working with physique specific athletes, primarily dancers, as well a food allergies and gastrointestinal issues, substance abuse, and mental health. I started my career as a dietitian in the mental health field working at PHP and IOP treatment programs, providing nutrition counselling to individuals receiving treatment for eating disorders, trauma, and substance abuse. At the same time, I was also providing group nutrition education to preprofessional ballet students in studios around the Greater Los Angeles area. 

Formerly a professional dancer, I found myself attracted to the dietetics field after a series of injuries knocked me out of my performance career. After that, I set my sights on finding ways to support a better quality of life, longevity, and autonomy over body image within my community of dancers and other athletes. Continuing my journey, I graduated with my Masters in Human Nutrition from Drexel University in Philadelphia. My passion lies in working with individuals on building a positive relationship with food, body image, and overall self-trust.
