FOUNDER + Artistic Director
Inspiring people to discover their creative genius and grow artistically is Rachel's passion and life's work. She started INK Theater for the youngest among us to learn that they have unlimited potential to do extraordinary things. As an educator for the past 20 years, Rachel has written innovative curriculum and developed progressive educational programs (and pioneered a school!), coached individuals and classes of all ages in music, theater, and - her favorite - musical theater, and has traveled the globe bringing the hope and joy that only music and theater can bring to even the remotest villages in Africa. Rachel holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Master of Music with an educational focus from University of Wisconsin.
