She/Her

Image 1: Rachel, a white middle-aged woman, looks up at the camera and smiles. Her bleached blonde hair is pinned back at the top and she wears over-sized purple sparkly glasses.

Rachel works as a Relaxed Performance & Processes and Disability Access Consultant, working with companies like the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Soulpepper Theatre, Harbourfront Centre, and the National Ballet of Canada to welcome d/Deaf & Disabled audiences to their performances. In 2022 Rachel curated and facilitated a 6 session workshop series on Accessibility in the Performing Arts that was attended and viewed by over 300 people nation-wide and was largely led by Deaf & Disabled Presenters. Rachel’s own artistic practice focuses on both community engaged theatre and developing sensory immersive theatre for disabled children.
