Get to know Tamara:
Hello, my name is Tamara Burman, RPCV who served in the Sustainable Community/Economic Development sector from 2014-2016. Kyrgyzstan is a small Central Asian country near Kazakhstan and China. Most of my work in PC was with improving the overall functioning of a small NGO working in democracy and small businesses. I also did work with tourism, preschools, leadership, and culture clubs; all the normal PCV stuff. Since coming back in the summer of 2016, I connected with the group at our Save the Bay meetup where I volunteered to help with communications and Facebook stuff. I helped to host a few meetups and was hopeful to get things going. This past fall I moved to Chicago for a few months for a position that just didn't work out. So now I am back home, excited to work as your co-President to formalize the workings of the group to offer structure, vision, and more opportunities for connections to support and connect each other and Peace Corps. I am starting a new position as a community organizer working on health equity in Woonsocket and West Warwick as my fulltime gig. I am glad that Emily and Pam have been such good friends and supporters in our mutual commitment to the group and mission! My personal email is for future connections. 


Get to know Emily:
Hi, everybody! For those of you who I haven’t met yet, I’m a Youth Development RPCV from Peru who served from 2012 - 2016. After two years in a rural Andean community, I extended to serve as a volunteer coordinator with PC Peru in Lima (Peru’s capital) and head our Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Committee. While working in PC Peru’s national office, I also spent a few days a week with CARE Peru in their Education and Gender Equality programs, and my last 6 months in country working on gender-based violence prevention with Peru’s Ministry of Women and Vulnerable Populations. I’m originally from Middletown where I currently live, and work at the Business Innovation Factory (BIF) in Providence, a non-profit strategy design consultancy that works with client institutions to reimagine healthcare, education, and social services. I got connected with the RI RPCV group in Fall 2016 and have attended many of our events since then (and have helped organize a few). Like Tamara, I’ve also helped Pam and a few others with our social media, website, group by-laws (still in progress!), and have served as our NPCA liaison. I’m very excited about continuing to fortify our group and grow the RPCV (+ supporters!) community in lil’ Rhody in the future, and look forward to seeing/meeting everyone at a gathering soon! In the meantime, I can be reached at
