Melissa Raymond graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Integrated Educational Studies and a Master of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Chapman University. Raymond joined Biola in 2021 as a clinical coordinator organizing students’ clinical externship placements and initiating and maintaining clinical affiliations between Biola and our community. Coming from PIH Health Hospital and Saddleback Memorial Medical Center, Raymond developed her administrative skills and later as a medical speech language pathologist. Raymond brings experience in both her non-clinical administrative role, where she utilized valuable skills in organization, project management and teamwork, coupled with her transition into a clinical role as a medical speech-language pathologist where she focused on patients in acute care and outpatient rehabilitation settings with swallowing and communication abilities after various medical diagnoses and neurological injuries. In addition, Raymond also provides home health services demonstrating her commitment to providing individualized care to address patient goals in a functional context. She has a desire to be a source of "salt and light" in the field of speech-language pathology. She is dedicated to not only the technical aspects of her profession but also the deep-rooted values that guide her work to influence future generations of therapists to serve God through this profession.
