About

      

      

Hailing from the city of brotherly love, Dr. Justine Marie Shuey has always had a passion for human sexuality. She completed her Bachelors degree with a minor in Women & Gender Studies and was accepted to Widener University’s Masters in Human Sexuality Education program before heading to San Francisco to complete a Doctorate in Human Sexuality at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. Dr. Shuey is currently working towards a second doctorate degree (a Ph.D.) in Human Sexuality from Widener University. 

For years Dr. Shuey has been helping individuals of all ages expand their knowledge around sexuality and gain confidence in their sexual expression. Dr. Shuey presents on hundreds of college campuses, medical schools, hospitals, organizations and conferences all over the United States and Canada. Dr. Shuey provides training to health care professionals and teaches medical students how to incorporate reproductive health exams and sexuality discussions into their practices in a respectful way that eases anxieties.

Recognizing that many instances of school harassment, intimidation and bullying result from anti-gay bias, Dr. Shuey began volunteering with Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network of Central New Jersey as a safe space trainer and was asked to join their Board of Directors. In this role, she trains teachers and raises awareness among students, helping to make schools safe and welcoming environments for all students.
