Christy A. Schmidt, Esq. has served as a professor and instructor for over thirty years. A graduate of Emerson College and Rutgers University School of Law, she prides herself on guiding students to master all areas of communication. The warm reception for her self-published novel, Treasure, based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest, inspired her to retire from a twenty-year law practice to follow creative pursuits. Her texts, Talk it Out: Mastering Critical Discourse and No Words: Mastering Nonverbal Communication assist students and professionals with critical thinking, perception and public presentation. Among her other works is her photo-exploration, To A Lighthouse which delights juveniles and adults with beautiful photos of each New Jersey lighthouse and engaging family-bonding exercises. She serves as an adjunct at both Kean and Monmouth Universities, offers private workshops for professionals, operates a portrait studio, manages a virtual art gallery, and continues to publish fiction and nonfiction work.
