Communication Studies
CHMB-227 (Chino)

Laurie Pratt started her educational journey at Orange Coast College in 1976.  She transferred to Azusa Pacific University where (after some timely advice from a faculty advisor there) she earned a double-major in Communication and Psychology in 1980.  After a fourteen-year break, Laurie attended California State University, Fullerton where she completed a Master’s degree in Speech Communication in 1998.

In the span between finishing her BA and starting her MA, Laurie worked as a recruiter for Chapman College before being snatched back by Azusa Pacific to recruit for her alma mater. During that time, she worked her way up to Associate Director of Graduate Admissions while also getting married and having two children.  But the interest and desire to pursue a graduate degree never subsided so she made the decision to get back to school and follow her dream of teaching Communication Studies at a community college.

Prior to being hired at Chaffey in 2006, Laurie was an adjunct instructor at Cypress College, Fullerton College and Azusa Pacific University.  Because it was important to Laurie to become versatile in a broad range of subjects, she developed her skills and as a result she teaches seven different courses for the Communication Studies department.  She never tires of learning new things and remains thrilled that every day she gets to share her passion for what communication can do to improve lives.

Laurie's office is at the Chino campus location where you are welcome to stop by and chat whenever the light is on!
