Nicole Shanahan, Member Services Coordinator

Nicole Shanahan is originally from Cole Harbour and now lives in the Annapolis Valley. She has a B.Sc. in Environmental Sciences from Memorial University of Newfoundland and an M.Sc. Environmental Sciences from the University of Freiburg in Germany. In Germany, Nicole studied the effects of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilization on tree root growth as part of an international tree diversity experiment.

Nicole has always been passionate about sustainable living and knowing where food comes from. Travelling and learning about new cultures, food is always at the centre, which is why she always tries to connect with resident farmers, hunters and/or fisherman to find locally supplied products. Nicole has worked on grain, olive, hops, and other farms locally and abroad and loves being a part of these communities.
