With her background in animation and years of experience leading production teams, Valerie Tracy brings a unique blend of craftsmanship and logistical wizardry to storytelling in each video she touches. Producing and directing videos since her graduation from RIT in 2009, she started in the nonprofit world, moved into freelance, and most recently has helmed the video production unit in the in-house Marketing and Communications team for CDM Smith. She grew their video capabilities into well-oiled operation that consistently delivers multi-million dollars in pipeline influence for the top environmental engineering firm. Valerie is based in Boston, MA but has traveled extensively for video projects from coast to coast and beyond, spending time in the Middle East and Southeast Asia to document stories and subjects that she’s passionate about.
