Dr. Sim brings more than 369 hours of specialized training in neurobiology, domestic violence, sexual assault and trauma healing. She will begin her new position August 1, 2016.
"Survivors of domestic violence live all around us, and they sometimes suffer in silence and isolation. We need to get the word out and let them know they are worthy of being loved!

As executive director of the agency, Dr. Sim will oversee and expand awareness, education and advocacy efforts regionally, nationally and internationally.

Dr. Sim will transition from her current position at the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence, a state-level organization that serves as Kansas' leading voice on sexual and domestic violence.
Prior to her work at the Coalition, Dr. Sim worked on her doctorate in Global Health and Wholeness at St. Paul's School of Theology where she wrote: "Body, Theology, and Intimate Partner Violence: Healing Fragmentation Through Spiritual Play." Dr. Sim also has a Masters of Divinity from Nazarene Theological Seminary and a Bachelors in Religion and Philosophy. In addition to her formal education, Dr. Sim also is published in books, publications, online journals and created numerous training tools and worked on special projects.
