Rachel Hockett

Writer, Editor, Theatre Artist



Having spent my life so far as a writing editor and a theater director, I now seek ways to combine my twin careers with my mission—to promote awareness of the essential value of the performing arts in learning, growing, and making a difference in the world. If we point and lead our young people in the right direction, they will pick up the torch and run toward a more compassionate and life-sustaining future
