Martha (Carey) Huckabee
Martha (Carey) Huckabee began working for MSF in Somalia in 1992 as a food logistician. For the next ten years she worked primarily in emergency contexts in Africa, with extensive experience in South Sudan and West Africa. This field experience was complemented by work at the MSF operational center in Brussels. Martha returned to the United States in 2002 to attend graduate school, where she earned an MPH and an MA. 2002 also marked the beginning of her first stint on the MSF-USA board of directors. Her most recent field experience was in 2009, when she went to Malawi with her family to serve as MSF head of mission. Martha currently lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and is the executive director for a local nonprofit. She is also working on her PhD, which examines the experience of being a beneficiary of MSF, including the experience of being photographed for advocacy campaigns.
