We are excited to announce that Nicole Larsen has joined Shiru in the role of Executive Assistant.

Shiru’s mission is to feed people sustainably by leveraging machine learning and precision biology to identify and create ideal food proteins. Nicole brings 30 years of experience in executive support to this mission, most recently at Basic American Foods. Nicole’s well-rounded experience will provide the support needed to allow our team to focus on what they do best each day.

Nicole also works as a Holistic Chef, helping people find alternative ingredients to allow them to navigate food sensitivities and eat the foods they love. During her time training as a chef, Nicole learned how troubled our food system is and the massive impact it is having on our earth. This passion for food, coupled with her strong desire to support Shiru’s mission of creating a more sustainable food system for our planet and future generations make her a great addition to the team.

“I am so excited to find a place where I can use my talents to elevate such an amazing team of change makers. It is a true honor to be supporting a woman-led company that aligns so closely with my beliefs and purpose. I can’t wait to see what amazing things are to come at Shiru.”

In her free time, Nicole loves gardening, cooking, raising chickens, and weekend trips exploring the California coast and forest lands.
