Biography

"The exchange of ideas enlightens and enriches those who listen to and participate in the dialogue."

Dr. Shari Schwartz is an Assistant Professor in the College of Health, Human Services, and Science at Ashford University. She holds a Doctorate in Psychology with a specialization in Psychology and the Law from Florida International University, a Master of Science in Psychology from Florida International University, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Central Florida. Dr. Schwartz has worked as a death penalty mitigation psychologist and as a sales executive for a major American corporation. She teaches a variety of online psychology courses at Ashford and believes that students who may not normally speak up in a traditional classroom setting have the opportunity to participate more with web-based learning. She encourages prospective and current students to never let anyone else define the limits of their success. In fact, she pursued her own terminal degree after a professor once told her she was too old to do so. She says, “My favorite thing about teaching is sharing my knowledge but also having the students share their knowledge and insight with me. The exchange of ideas enlightens and enriches those who listen to and participate in the dialogue. I believe I share the responsibility with my students for ensuring they have a positive learning experience.” Dr. Schwartz lives in South Beach Miami, FL.
