VALERIE MARCLEY

<p>Dubbed a classic free spirit, Valerie Marcley worked for ten years as professional crew on private yachts in the Caribbean and knows the islands well. She continued her love of traveling which included volunteer stints on a cinnamon farm in Costa Rica and at a monkey rescue in Cornwall, England (yes, you read right).&nbsp;<br /> Now a landlubber - but near the sea, she has recently been producing performance festivals in the Northeast.</p>
