Rhea Stark '18.5
Public Relations coordinator

As Public Relations Coordinator, Rhea oversees the identity of Brown Market Shares and creates content for the weekly newsletter, website, blog, and social media platforms. Rhea is an Archaeology and Middle East Studies concentrator with an interest in cultural heritage and art of the Islamic world. She loves cooking, hiking, napping in the sun, chalk pastels and bad puns. She still uses her kindergarten watercolors and is attempting to paint all her friends their favorite vegetable by the end of the year. Rhea believes all food is best served with a side of hummus and surrounded by friends. She is interested in the intersections between community, culture, and food and can be regularly found in the kitchen making pie.

Katherine Webb '19
Finance Coordinator

As Finance Coordinator, Katherine manages all payments, invoices, and other aspects of the program’s finances. She studies Applied Math-Biology at Brown. Growing up in California, Katherine was always around fresh produce, and loves helping connect members of the Brown community to locally grown food year-round. She enjoys spending her free time baking (despite the limitations of dorm kitchens), working on magazine layouts for campus publications, and watching too much of the Food Network.

 

Tim Ittner '18
purchasing Coordinator

Tim is the Purchasing Coordinator for Market Shares, where he works with local farmers and producers to select and purchase balanced, seasonal shares each week. He fell in love with farming and agriculture while growing up on his family's Midwest farm, where he bottle-fed too many calves to count. At Brown Tim double-concentrates in Social Analysis & Research and Africana Studies. You can probably find him exploring the far reaches of Providence, roasting a sheet pan of vegetables, or browsing the headlines in any number of news publications.

 

Lucas Toh '17.5
Communications Coordinator

Lucas is in charge of record-keeping, managing sign-ups, and communicating with shareholders. He is currently a senior concentrating in Environmental Science, with a focus on conservation and remote sensing. Having grown up in the Philippines, Lucas’ idea of local food revolves around tropical fruit, and he feels a pang of sadness every time these are missing from his share. Nonetheless, he has developed a strong love and appreciation for local food systems in New England through his work with Brown Market Shares Program and the Real Food Challenge. In his spare time, Lucas loves to cook, hike, swim and scuba dive.

Kirby Engelman '18
Operations Coordinator

Kirby is the Operations Coordinator for all things Market Shares- overseeing everything from Market Day happenings to volunteer and food management. As an Environmental Studies concentrator, Kirby appreciates and relishes the natural world we live in, taking particular joy in envisioning the positive changes and shifts our world can take toward creating a more sustainable future. Her family in the Midwest has nurtured her love for growing food and fostered the importance of cooking together. She has been growing produce in her backyard for a boatload of years; in the summer months you can find her fridge overwhelmed with cucumbers and tomatoes (stop by and she’d be happy to give you more than a few tomatoes). Away from Market Shares, Kirby enjoys beekeeping, woodworking, all things outdoors, all things surrounding bodies of water, getting her hands in some dirt, and herding around her flock of hens.
