Before moving to Chicago, Marley spent more than half of her life working as a professional musical theatre actor in New York. She rarely misses the chance to sing a few bars and can often be caught singing at home, at her desk or in the studio.

Marley lives in River North with her husband and their rescue dog, Chance.
