Brenda Boyd, Ph.D., RT(R)(M)

Clinical Coordinator, Assistant Professor

My name is Brenda Boyd. Sometimes my students call me "Dr. B." I hold a PhD in Leadership from Andrews University, a Master's degree in Health Professions Education from Loma Linda University, a Master's degree in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix, a triple Bachelor's degree in Public Relations, Journalism, and Communication from Pacific Union College, and an Associate’s degree in Medical Radiography from Loma Linda University.  I have completed a Certificate in Family Counseling and a Certificate in Online Teaching and Learning.

I am an Assistant Professor at Loma Linda University and Clinical Coordinator for the Medical Radiography program in the School of Allied Health Professions. The best part of my job is connecting with students and helping them fulfill their dreams. I also have enjoyed working in faculty governance, employee engagement, service learning, and marketing.

My role is to help others see and reach their fullest potential so they can live at their highest best and fulfill their life calling. I believe that each person has the power to change the world.

Central to who I am is my passion for helping students achieve their goals toward maturity, autonomy, and academic success. It really matters to me that my students grow, change, and become what God created them to be.

I see my place in their journey as the one who listens, supports, and believes in them. I gain satisfaction in helping my students remove the obstacles that block their success. I am a cheerleader so they can see their true potential. I am the one who pushes or pulls them toward their goals.

As an educator at Loma Linda University, I have committed my life to helping others, living in wholeness, and living by values and high standards.

I am motivated by the mission, vision, and values of Loma Linda University, specifically in the areas of humility, excellence, justice, freedom, integrity, compassion, and self-control.
