Operations Associate

Shannon (she/her/hers) joined Hope’s Harvest as an Americorps VISTA in 2021 with intentions to learn as much as possible about local food systems and food equity. She received her undergraduate degree in Marketing and Psychology from Bryant University, and went on to further her project management and marketing skills while working with an electrical engineering company. Eager for change and fulfillment, Shannon is excited to repurpose her skill set to make a meaningful impact on the community alongside her Hope’s Harvest coworkers. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking and baking for her family and friends, diving into DIY projects, and spending lots of time by the ocean.
