Genevieve Ried, MD, has practiced full scope family medicine and obstetrics in rural areas of the United States for 16 years.
Her interest in improving care in the developing world has been inspired by the safe childbirth experiences we can provide to mothers and babies in the rural United States. She has worked in Nicaragua, Pakistan, Morocco, Peru and Bolivia. In 2010, she founded GMEF.
Sabrina has worked as a business consultant, helping companies and non-profits create marketing plans, recruit and control spending.
Sabrina’s volunteer experience includes working at the Jane Hull House in Chicago providing job search assistance to women in transition seeking employment, and also teaching creative movement classes for homeless women.
Now a documentarian creating socially conscious films, Sabrina is thrilled to be working on the Global Midwife Education Foundation board. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Duke University with a BA in Political Science, a degree for which she is still seeking some practical application.
