Alex Potter
Board Member, Vice President

Alex Potter is a co-founder of GRM and a current board member. She spent the majority of her twenties bouncing between emergency nursing domestically and working as a photojournalist throughout the Middle East - mostly in Yemen, Iraq, and Lebanon - for publications like National Geographic, The New York Times, and The Washington Post.

Alex grew up in Minnesota, and worked for a short time as a wildland firefighter in Idaho, but now calls Alaska home. She recently joined the United States Air Force to continue pursuing her calling to go above and beyond in saving lives - both in conflict, humanitarian disasters, and hard-to-reach places.

She loves trail running, water skiing, and is currently trying to keep her houseplants alive.


We are in Gaza and Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed and was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was the bedrock of GRM, serving as Board President for 4 years. In January, Pete stepped away from GRM to work with Global Outreach Doctors on their Ukraine mission and was killed while rendering aid.

This is a stark reminder of the perils rescue and aid workers face in conflict zones as they serve citizens caught in the crossfire. Pete was just 33 years old, but lived a life in service of others, first as a decorated US Marine and then in humanitarian aid. GRM will strive to honor his legacy and the selfless service he practiced.

We fully support Pete’s family, friends, and colleagues during this devastating time.
