CHEF/HOSTESS LILY SHELLEN:
My name is Lily, I was born on a gentleman farm in Canada, where I spent the 3 first years of my life between my Canadian father, french mother, and older brother. Then I moved with my mother and brother to the south of France in a country house in the hinterland of Nice. I had a happy childhood with many outdoor activities (mountain hiking, running, horse riding, kart, sailing) also did 8 years of theater, and traveled the world backpacking with my family.
I am a very active person and still spend my free time backpacking around the world, with friends or on my own for a few months at a time, discovering different cultures, hiking, living with the inhabitants, hitchhiking, and sleeping in the wilderness.
I attended a 3-year college hospitality education, on cooking and silver service and started working as a waitress in trendy restaurants on the french riviera and Corsica at 16.
My mother was a hospitality, English, and stcw 95 trainer at the merchant marine school in Nice and I naturally was attracted by the yachting industry. I obtained my stcw 95 at 18, and worked on yachts ever since as a chief/stew/deckhand, mostly on sailing yachts.
I enjoy cooking healthy Mediterranean food (fish, vegetables) and love to organize fishing activities with the guests, and make sure that their needs are fulfilled. Most guests actually enjoy the light, healthy and tasty food I cook. I am very much at ease with silver service, for owners as well as charter guests.
I have the reputation to be very sociable, friendly, bubbly, smiley, and generous.
I make a point to please people and give my very best and every task on board,
Philippe and Lily look forward to meeting you on Lady M to share sailing in the Caribbean waters, quality time, and some excellent cuisine.
