Melissa R., MOT, OTR/L, CHT

Meet Ms. Melissa: the Toy Story fan who first joined the team as an Occupational Therapist in 2018. Ms. Melissa earned her Bachelorโ€™s in Kinesiology from Cal State Fullerton and her Masterโ€™s in Occupational Therapy from Loma Linda University. She has completed training in Beckman Oral Motor Intervention and the SOS Approach to Feeding. In 2023, Ms. Melissa became a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT).

This Seahawks enthusiast enjoys being part of the team because she can work with children and their families to support the kiddosโ€™ growth and independence.

Outside the clinic, you might find her at Disneyland with her son, cooking, reading, or eating sushi and tacos!
