Faculty Bio

Shari L. Johnson

Shari L. Johnson is both a social worker and an anthropologist by educational training. Both graduate experiences were completed at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan where she was born and lived for nearly 50 years.

After a nearly 10-year career as a professional social worker working solely with older adults in health care settings, Shari managed a private practice for about the same length of time filling the need as a therapist working solely with LGBQIA+ older adults. During this time, she also stumbled into her first taste of teaching when she was asked to present a substitute guest lecture for one of her mentors and former professors. There was no turning back after that!

For the past several decades, Shari has developed and taught a wide variety of both undergraduate and graduate social work courses, primarily in Queer studies, diversity, race and social justice, and aging at several colleges and universities in Michigan and Massachusetts. Shari also developed and taught cultural anthropology courses and social work continuing education/professional development workshops at a community college in Michigan. In addition to her teaching experiences, Shari has also held several positions in faculty development and student affairs.

As the sole proprietor for The Traveling Diversity Professor consultation services, Shari L. Johnson now resides in Minnesota with far too many house plants and a beta fish named Noir.
