Shaelyn Hanes
Office Manager

Shaelyn first discovered her love of working with artists with disabilities during a studio internship with Creative Growth in 2008. After moving to across the Bay, she began as a weekend gallery volunteer with Creativity Explored in 2013.

Shaelyn previously served as an organizational consultant for a small HIV/AIDS nonprofit in South Africa with the US Peace Corps. She moved back to the Bay Area in 2013 and worked as an administrative project manager at UCSF until joining Creativity Explored fulltime in 2016. 

Shaelyn graduated with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies from UC Berkeley, where she transferred in order to return to the west coast after studying painting at Maryland Institute College of Art.
