Jennifer Gilchrist – Blissful Bride Coach

…the amazing you, the one you didn’t realize existed, or are too scared to let out.

Shed your skin of past identities and explore who you are NOW.

Break down your mental barriers of being judged, not being accepted, not feeling good enough. 

Realize that YOU are fabulous!

YOU are more than enough!

Learn to accept, and own, what you have and who you are.

“It has changed the way I feel about making eye contact with strangers on the street. It’s made me bolder, and sassier as I move through the World”

Senta Burke – Actress

Designed for bodies of ALL ages, abilities, shapes and sizes, actress Cat LaCohie (aka Vixen DeVille) presents her own unique blend of Burlesque technique, fused with elements of her extensive experience in Physical Theatre, Stand-up, Public Speaking, and Theatre Creation.

“Vixen is an amazingly supportive, inspiring and dynamic coach… I used to be really heavy and didn’t feel connected to my new, thinner body. I also believed I couldn’t dance my entire life, which made me even more self-conscious. I went from having a panic attack the first class, to performing my act on stage like a pro 6 weeks later. It was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life! I now feel sexy, confident and strong. This class was a truly transformative experience!
Don’t think about it, just do it”

Kim C. – Casting Director
