Biography

Jessica Sherer is a communications specialist whose experience couples teaching at the undergraduate level with a background as a professional writer and editor. 

As an educator, Jessica has taught courses in writing, editing, and introductory journalism, served as faculty adviser for APU’s The Clause and Collide, and helped design writing courses. Her goal in the classroom is to move beyond the subject matter into helping students learn to solve problems creatively, think critically, grow from challenges, and embrace a model of lifelong learning. 

Outside of the classroom, Jessica strives to facilitate transformation in students’ lives by nurturing them, challenging them, and pushing them toward discovering their path for the future. This takes place organically through both formal and informal mentoring relationships that reflect on academics, relationships, spirituality, professional goals, and beyond.

Jessica’s work as a writer and editor has included developing content solutions and providing editorial leadership for integrated marketing campaigns, websites, newsletters, technical documents, news articles, and more. This experience ranges from copyediting and copywriting to content management services for marketing agencies, medical offices, churches, financial institutions, Internet start-ups, and others.
