Stefany Shaheen was appointed as a member of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition on March 24, 2023, for a 2-year term.
Ms. Shaheen is an advocate, entrepreneur, and business leader. She co-founded and is currently President of Good Measures. Harnessing the power of food as medicine, the company was awarded a suite of patents by the U.S Patent Office, and Shaheen is a named inventor. She was inspired to launch Good Measures following her eldest daughter’s diagnosis with type 1 diabetes and has dedicated herself to making life better for people living with chronic conditions. Shaheen authored a New York Times bestseller, Elle & Coach, about this experience, which also led her to serve on the Board of Trustees for Joslin Diabetes Center, the world’s preeminent diabetes research, clinical care, and education organization. Shaheen served on the Portsmouth, New Hampshire City Council and is currently Chair of the Police Commission. Governor John Lynch (D-NH) appointed her to serve, and she became Chair of the State’s Commission on the Status of Women. A graduate of MIT’s Sloan School of Management and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Shaheen was also a Division I Scholarship Athlete. Shaheen and her husband live in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where they raised 4 children — and she had the distinct pleasure of coaching one of them as part of the Portsmouth High School Girls Varsity Volleyball Team.
