Shelley is the person you will contact when you call or email to Cloud 9. She will answer all of your questions and even answer the questions you don't have, yet. Shelley grew up in the Carribean, yes, on an island.

Interesting fact: she and her twin sister have toured in Europe playing steel pans.
