Adina Gillett is a Seattle-based Improvisational Comedy Actor and Director. She has been a company member of Jet City Improv since 1999, and can tell you stories about the past century while gently rocking on a porch swing. She has had her hands in creating and directing many improvised plays such as ‘Lovetanic’, ‘Lease – Seattle’s Own Rock Opera’, ‘Inferno’, ‘CUT!’, and others. When Adina isn’t doing the aforementioned things, she is a Hypnotherapist and owner of Bear Creek Hypnotherapy, helping people conquer fears and achieve health and happiness goals. If you set a spell on her porch swing, she’d be tickled to tell you all the surprising and wonderful ways that Improv and Hypnotherapy are connected.
