Shereen has been the About.com nutrition expert since 2004. You can read more about Shereen's current and past work on her Google Profile: Shereen Jegtvig.


During her 16 years of clinical practice, Shereen saw how eating nutritious foods (or not-so-nutritious foods) impacted her patients' well-being every day. She decided that she wanted to reach a larger audience so she left practice to become a health and nutrition writer as well as the nutrition expert for About.com. Shereen also teaches Evidence Based Nutrition at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut.

Shereen is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the Association of Health Care Journalists, and is on the editorial board for Natural Standard Research Collaboration, an organization that systematically reviews scientific evidence on complementary and alternative medicine.


Shereen has a master's degree in human nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut and she was previously credentialed as a Certified Nutrition Specialist. She also has a doctor of chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minnesota.
