Susie Vybiral Honoree Profile

Susie Vybiral is the founder and CEO of Room Redux, an international non-profit organization focused on transforming the physical spaces in which children have been physically and/or sexually abused to help foster healing.

Vybiral’s own life experiences have served as a profound force in understanding the pain of child abuse victims and the importance of changing their environment. She knows that many times abuse occurs in a child’s own room or bed, making the room itself feel unsafe. As a result, children may stop sleeping, start acting out or may become depressed, avoiding their room entirely. Through donations and grants, Vybiral and her team at Room Redux are fully transforming children’s rooms so they will feel comfortable and safe to heal, break the cycle of abuse, and ultimately change the trajectory of their lives.

Globally, one billion children aged 2-17 years are estimated to have experienced physical, sexual or emotional violence and neglect in the past year (Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics), and so, Room Redux’s work does not stop.

Vybiral is currently a doctoral candidate and will obtain her PsyD in 2023. She was also awarded an Honorary Doctorate (Psychology) by UNRS. She is a member of the Texas Advisory Council for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and a member of Texas Women for Children, both of which work closely with the Texas Governor’s Office, as well as having served as a guest speaker for child protective service organizations, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and law enforcement conferences.
