Founder, Director and Drama Coach

After three years training at East 15 acting school, Valerie launched herself on to the alternative comedy circuit, as a member of the comedy duo 'The Tooth Orphan'. She has performed on stage, in museums, on film and TV. Since having children her priorities have shifted and after moving from London to Ickleford, Ickle Drama was born. Ickle Drama firstly started out as an adult group but was slowly invaded by teenagers and now is for children of all ages. As a child she was a student at Bodens and a member of Enfield Youth Theatre. Ickle Drama encompases all that Valerie liked in the drama classes she attended as a child and takes on all that she learnt at E15. Acting comes from the heart, if you don't believe you can not be believed.

In 2016 to 2017 Valerie studied at Arts Educational School (City, University of London) to upgrade the diploma from East 15 to a BA (Hons) in Performance Studies.
