The Deep Roots Board of Directors

Board Members:

Michael Taliercio (Acting President)

Mike was born and raised in the Midwest. He is an attorney with Rossabi, Black, Slaughter P.A. and also serves as the President of the Board of Directors of Face to Face Greensboro. He lives in downtown Greensboro and is very excited about about the new store coming into his neighborhood.

Miriam Biber (Vice President)

Miriam is a holistic health coach with Sustainable Health Choices and the Assistant Director of Alumni Relations at Guilford College. She loves educating people on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, cooking wholesome foods, and finding great trails around Greensboro. Miriam is excited to be a part of the co-op as we move to a bigger store downtown.

Chad Collins (Treasurer)

Born and raised in Stokes County, North Carolina, Chad attended Guilford College and has been a resident of Greensboro since 1992. He lives in Lindley Park with his partner and two daughters. Along with being the Financial Director for Lucky Dog Volleyball, he enjoys reading, tennis, and learning about and educating others on the many benefits of locally grown organic foods.

Robyn Musselwhite (Secretary)

Robyn has been an owner of Deep Roots Market since 2001, and as a board member is excited to be a part of the store's new downtown venture. As a psychologist in private practice at Associates for Psychotherapy on Spring Garden Street, she is also happy that both her home and workplace will be practically within walking distance of the new location. Robyn loves organic and local foods, crossword puzzles, hiking with husband Chris, and being Mom to three adult kids and Georgia (the cutest dog ever). Especially treasured is her new role as grandmom to twin grandsons.

Nick Divitci

Nick, a Greensboro resident since 1968, is a retired businessman and civic activist. With numerous systems certifications in management, production and administrative systems, he enjoys working with area organizations including the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce. He wants to help Deep Roots Market sharpen its marketing presence, increase transparency towards and interaction with the co-op's owners, enhance its promotion to students, faculty and staff at local academic institutions, and move towards an online ordering capability.

Sheldon Herman

Sheldon is our resident lunatic bicyclist who is often seen cycling about in Greensboro. When not traveling on two wheels, he can also be spotted rowing an authentic gondola from Venice at the Meher Center in South Carolina. He is also rumored to work at the Lotus Center on Lawndale Drive, although there is little proof this is true. Occasionally, he fixes bicycles at the Interactive Resource Center as part of the Changing Gears program. In addition to other unspecified activities in the community, he takes an active interest in cooperatives, particularly this one.
