We are pleased to announce the addition of Leah Simmerman to our staff. Leah will join senior designers, Chris Hudson and Joe Bassett to round out our in-house design team.
A Blacksburg native and one of our former interns, Leah is returning to the New River Valley after completing her Masters in Sustainable Building Design and Construction from Appalachian State University. Prior to her work at Appalachian State, she completed her Bachelors of Fine Art, Craft and Material Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Leah possesses a thoughtful and creative mind coupled with a strong work ethic and attention to detail. We know her focus on creative,sustainable and universal design will serve our clients well and we all look forward to working with her again
From the day we broke ground through the date we moved in, the Shelter Alternatives team has made this construction project one which we enjoyed and reaffirmed our belief that we had made the right choice in who to choose to build our home.
