Clara Lee Arnold
Manager, Field Staffing

Clara Lee comes to GRM after accumulating over thirty years of experience in veterinary medicine and animal welfare.  Clara Lee has dedicated her abilities and resources to finding ways to offer basic veterinary health care as well as spay and neuter services to low-resource areas. She has worked around the world organizing veterinary medical clinics, recruiting veterinary professionals from across the globe to donate their skills to help populations in need. She is a bridge builder who focuses on bringing together individuals from various backgrounds to execute projects. Clara Lee has worked throughout Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and several Native American lands. Switching to human medical recruitment was an easy transition as she is equally ardent about providing care to humans in austere conditions.

Clara Lee is a passionate individual who encourages and promotes teamwork to accomplish projects and strategic goals with a “boots on the ground” attitude. Clara Lee has a degree in Political Science and Broadcast News. Clara Lee spent three decades working with various non-profits, but, until working with GRM, she focused primarily on animal welfare, and the importance of the human-animal bond.  With her certified therapy animals, she has spent years visiting hospice and critically ill facilities, seeing how pet therapy can be healing and rehabilitating when time is taken to sit, listen, and talk with patients about their lives, using a well-behaved therapy animal as a way to initiate conversation.

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.
