Heather has spent the last 25 years as a theatre director and voice teacher. She co-founded a theatre company in Loudoun, VA and has a deep-rooted passion for the arts. Recently, she switched focus as a life coach and energy healer. Her favorite roll that she plays is being a mom of 3 amazing kids and now a grandma, too! 9 years ago, two of her kids contracted Lyme disease and since then, she has become passionate about healing her family and living an abundant life. She’s excited to work as INSPIRE’s artistic director and bring uplifting theater to the East Valley and beyond.
Michael Sackett is the heart of INSPIRE. He is currently the CEO of INSPIRE Entertainment and INSPIRE Music Service Hope, a Performing Arts Studio and Nonprofit based in Gilbert, AZ. He loves educating youth about the benefits of music and the arts in their lives. He hopes his efforts will provide the opportunity for many people to be touched by the power of music and the performing arts, both as performers and supportive audience members. In his spare time, Michael likes to read, travel, play soccer, and spend time with his six cute kids!
Autumn discovered her passion for the arts at the ripe age of ten where she played Miss Hannigan in a junior production of Annie. Since then, her life has revolved around theatre and music. She is always amazed at how a single production, whether as a cast member or an audience member, has the ability to touch the hearts of any and all who are present. She is so excited for work to feel like play as she joins the INSPIRE team to touch the hearts of those around the valley and beyond.
Theatre and Nonprofit Assistant
Kendra has spent a lot of years involved in both musical theatre and in blogging and Social Media. She has been singing and acting since she was a child. Favorite roles include Liesl in The Sound of Music, Babe in The Pajama Game, Irene in Crazy for You, and Older Sandra in Big Fish. She is a former choir teacher and music directed Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Addams Family, and Once on This Island at Heritage Academy Laveen. While her children (who are all pretty theatrical) were little, she started a creative blog called "My Insanity" about DIY birthday parties, holidays, and home improvement projects--turning important moments into creative productions. She considers herself a "grandma blogger," since she was among the early adopters of blogging platforms and many social media outlets. While her blog has been letting dust grow for the last several years, she has decided to put the skills she learned there to use managing other social media accounts. She is excited to be a part of helping the INSPIRE vision come to life!
