Jen Gorman: Interim Board chair

Jennifer Gorman, MC, is the Director of Operations at Center For Discovery, where she has been fortunate to work since 2002, initially as a Program Director and therapist and currently as the leader of Discovery’s growing eating disorders division.  Prior to joining Center for Discovery, Jen was fortunate enough to serve in leadership positions in two other nationally respected treatment centers, where she specialized in the treatment of eating disorders and trauma, and started and directed several Outpatient and Family Programs.

Jen is a fierce advocate for people with eating disorders and their families having access to appropriate and life saving treatment, for as long as they need it.  She has been instrumental in training others to argue effectively for the need for treatment and has worked to build collaborative relationships with payers and to demonstrate the value of providing appropriate treatment in a timely manner.

Jennifer attended the University of Arizona on a full athletic scholarship, earning a Psychology degree while playing Division 1 volleyball.  Her training as an elite athlete contributed greatly to her ability to thrive in a team setting and to the development of a strong work ethic and leadership skills.  She lives in Cypress, California and is happily married to her High School sweetheart, with whom she is raising a wonderful 11- year-old son.
