gbA Announces New Hire, Neha Shukla

gbA is thrilled to have Neha Shukla join our collaborative team as the Office Coordinator. 

“I’m excited to dive into a new adventure and work with such a creative, talented group of people who have so positively impacted public and private spaces in the local and broader communities.  Most recently my work involved coordinating all things food related in the running of a local elementary school kitchen and food service program.  When I’m not at the gbA studio, I’m upriver in my home based art studio or exploring the surrounding valleys and mountains with my family.”
