Biography

Dr. Lynne Trevisan is a Lead Faculty – Assistant Professor in the College of Health, Human Services, and Science. She began her career with Ashford University in 2009, beginning as an Instructional Specialist, then moving into Academic Resolution where she adjudicated grade appeals and the outcomes for plagiarism referrals. Dr. Trevisan began teaching full time in March 2012. She teaches in the Health Care Administration program, and occasionally teaches classes in other programs, such as Complementary and Alternative Health, the Health and Wellness programs. As part of her role as a Lead Faculty, Dr. Trevisan has developed or revised a number of classes for Ashford University in the programs in which she teaches, as well as assisting in course development for a class in the RN to BSN program. She is also a Student Community Standards committee member, Student Academic Progress appeals committee member, and Originality Matters committee member. She is a reviewer for Prior Learning Assessment submissions.

Dr. Trevisan earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2000 from Palmer College of Chiropractic. After graduating, Dr. Trevisan had a small chiropractic practice for nearly a decade. She also taught in the classroom at a local community college, covering topics such as anatomy and physiology, biology, microbiology, nutrition, health and wellness, and nutrition for dental assistants. She is a native Iowan; she grew up and still lives along the Mississippi river on the eastern border of Iowa, along with her husband and pets, and loves to travel and cook. A personal goal for her future is to write a cookbook…eventually.

Dr. Trevisan’s teaching style is to share knowledge with students in order to best prepare them for what they will be expected to know when they reach their careers. This covers a wide variety of topics as well as skill sets. She knows students bring their own experiences to the classroom, and states “I learn more from my students than they ever learn from me. The knowledge my students share from their own lives is remarkable and deeply appreciated.”
