Marissa Chiang

Marissa has visited Bulgaria twice to present on the topic of providing therapy services to children with special needs. She has seen every episode of the TV series Friends many times. She found all 85 Bucky on Parade statues!

Marissa earned her BS and MS in Communicative Disorders from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has always had a passion for working with kids, starting with babysitting and teaching swim lessons as a teen. Throughout her college years, she provided in-home therapy for children with autism. She is a kid at heart and loves to play and learn alongside the kids that she serves, so a career in pediatrics was always her goal. What could possibly be better than playing games, reading books, and doing crafts all day?! After college, Marissa moved to Minnesota, where in a clinic similar to CI she provided speech and language therapy to children of all ages and with a variety of diagnoses. She also met her husband and had two children while in Minnesota. Marissa has several friends who are a part of the CI family, so when her husband’s job brought them back to Madison, she knew CI was the place she wanted to work! She is thrilled to be a part of this creative, hard-working, fun-loving, and dedicated team! When not working, you can find Marissa playing with her kids and puppy, crafting, and planning her next Disney vacation!
