Eleanor Pereboom '21
Public Relations coordinator

As Public Relations Coordinator, Eleanor oversees the identity of Brown Market Shares and creates content for the weekly newsletter, website, and social media platforms. She is Brown|RISD Dual Degree Student and studies Environmental Science at Brown and Ceramics at RISD. She loves most things you might find in the dirt, some of her favorites being root vegetables, clay, insects, and funky rocks. She likes to experiment with incorporating vegetables into baked goods — a couple unique successes were beet cake and citrus-collard green cupcakes. Eleanor is excited to be apart of the effort to bring fresh and locally grown food to College Hill, and hopes to spread her passion for the program further in the Providence community.

Grace Li '20
Finance Coordinator

As Finance Coordinator, Grace is responsible for managing all payments, invoices, and other financial transactions for Market Shares. She is a Biochemistry concentrator and firmly believes a cup of tea can make any situation instantly better. In her free time, Grace loves to curl up with a good book, spend time with friends, and look after her houseplants. Raised in rural western Maryland, Grace has always enjoyed vegetable gardening with her mom and exploring farmers markets and roadside stands; she has grown to deeply appreciate sustainable farming and the vibrancy of nature. As Finance Coordinator, she hopes to continue expanding the program to reach more people in need of affordable, locally grown produce.

Tara Pelton '20
purchasing Coordinator

As Purchasing Coordinator, Tara works with local farmers and producers to curate balanced shares each week. Tara is an Economic and Environmental Studies concentrator with a focus on water security and sovereignty. Tara is from Colorado, loves Colorado, and fits almost every stereotype that you can associate with Coloradoans. The place she has called home for so long initially inspired her enthusiasm and attraction to the environment. Growing up on a small orchard, Tara loved and felt so much reward from harvesting and feeding others with the apples, plums, pears, and peaches from her family’s trees. Tara loves running, and is an avid hiker (her favorite hiking buddy is her dog Roscoe.) She is also a major wildflower enthusiast! Her favorite food in the entire world is dark chocolate, and her spirit animal is a beaver. Tara loves BMSP and has a genuine passion for food justice. She can’t wait to help develop new producer partnerships and foster the relationships BMSP already has with so many wonderful local farmers

Charlotte oster '20
Communications Coordinator

As Communications Coordinator, Charlotte interacts with shareholders and manages all records and sign-ups. She is an English concentrator who finds joy in the conversations that arise from literature and the journeys into new places and outlooks it illuminates. Her exploratory nature also fosters her love for the environment and for running along mountains or diving into oceans. Guided by this reverence for the world around her, Charlotte hopes to help make sustainable, local food more widespread and available.

 

Richie Huisa '21
Program Development Coordinator

Richie is responsible for maintaining and expanding the subsidized program, as well as overseeing the growth and development of the Market Shares Program as a whole. He is a Chemistry concentrator focusing on Chemical Biology and hopes to one day pursue research in green Chemistry. When Richie is not in a library, he runs in the hope of beating his 5K personal record from his senior year of high school (he probably won’t). Richie hopes to ensure the subsidized program reaches its full potential, allowing as many families as possible to have access to fresh, locally sourced food.

tom macmullen '20
logistics Coordinator

Tom is in charge of coordinating and communicating with all the key Brown organizations and community members that are necessary for Market Day to run smoothly on Thursdays. He is  an International Relations concentrator on the Security and Society Track. Tom served as BMSP volunteer since the moment he stepped on campus freshman year and says that his favorite hour on Thursdays is when he is restocking produce or checking in shareholders.  With his own bed of pepper plants in his home’s backyard, Tom has always shared a personal love for food and enjoys experimenting in the kitchen with whatever the garden has to offer. Outside of the class, he loves to all things outdoors—whether it’s a nice hike or a trip to the beach! In joining the coordinator team, Tom hopes to better understand and overcome the challenges of connecting communities to fresh, local ingredients

Ellen Li '21
Operations Coordinator

As Operations Coordinator, Ellen’s job is to make Market Day the best experience possible for you and the volunteers. She is a double concentrator in Applied Math-Biology and History and is a member of the Brown Women’s Club Volleyball team. At times of high stress, she relaxes by spending hours in the kitchen making noodle soup— the ultimate comfort food! Ellen loves all things food, from growing, to harvesting, to cooking, and most importantly eating! She was lucky enough to grow up with a garden that provided plentiful green beans and tomatoes, and treasures the smell of fresh on-the-vine tomatoes. Her mom, who was a food science major, emphasized important molecular components that determined nutritional value as Ellen grew up. Ever since, Ellen strives to make more people aware of the important nutritional components in different foods and to help more people become educated on healthy eating.
