About Rebecca M. Baker, M.A.

Professor Baker combines training in theatre with her license in speech-language pathology to focus on vocal arts for performance. Before returning to the theatre faculty in 2000, she managed a hospital-based professional voice clinic. She teaches acting, voice, and movement courses as well as serving as director and vocal coach. Her acting experience includes community theatre, film, and educational videos. She is the author of When You Don’t See His Hand: the Nadine Hennesey Story, published by Discovery House, which features a Cedarville alumni now serving in Kosovo. She has taught theatre classes as part of missions outreach overseas. Professor Baker retired in 2017.
