Dr. Ferszt has a B.A. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; an M.A. from the University of South Carolina, Columbia; and a Ph.D. from Wayne State U in Detroit (2006). At ASU she teaches English 101, 102, 301 and 302 (Business Writing). In 2016, one of her Eng 302 students became a finalist for Changemaker Challenge based on a project that grew out of an ENG 302 test and writing assignment, and in 2017 she won a Writing Programs Teaching Award for her innovative work in ENG 302 Business Writing. In 2017 one of her students was a winner at Trash Hack, for writing the business plan influenced by the TOMS business model. In November 2017, ASU Now featured a full-length story about Dr. Ferszt's ENG 302 classes, in particular, her use of the book, Start Something that Matters, by TOMS founder, Blake Mycoskie, who later tweeted about it.
