Dr. Khalid is a licensed clinical psychologist who has worked with trauma for most of her career. She believes SOAR can make a difference in the lives of survivors and allow them to thrive. Dr. Khalid believes our brains and bodies are beautiful, evolutionary works of art with an innate ability to heal when given the right tools. She hopes SOAR can be a toolbox that enables survivors to learn to heal themselves. Dr. Khalid has a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She is also trained in EMDR.  In her role as Executive Director, she hopes to be able to reach more survivors and provide on-going professional psychological services to survivors of sexual abuse.

Since accepting her role as Executive Director of SOAR, Dr. Khalid has made it a focus to steer SOAR towards more outreach, advocacy and testing. She aims for SOAR to reach minority populations and those marginalized.
