Born in the Downriver suburbs of Detroit, Valerie Meachum grew up an Air Force brat, logging fifteen addresses by age twelve. Now based in the Chicago suburbs, she's equally at home in new plays on storefront stages, musicals and classics in the burbs, and the vibrant independent film scene of "Hollywood Midwest."

She currently stars as Donna in the webseries The Deadersons and developing Unvarnished: A Portrait of Elizabeth Siddal, her one-woman show about the Pre-Raphaelite icon.

As a member of Costumers with a Cause, the Rebel Legion, and the 501st Legion, she makes frequent appearances at children's charity events as favorite characters, and has become a well-known cosplayer in Chicago convention circles and on social media.
