With 30 years of experience in the communications industry—15 in private practice as a regionally-based (now global) coach in the Greater Chicago Area andNorthwest Indiana—Coach Kiki helps you be your authentic self and SPEAK YOUR TRUTH.  After a journalism education from Ball State University and work as a freelance and magazine writer, Kealah (KEY-la) Parkinson moved into creative production and speech writing for Fortune 500 companies, like Abbott Laboratories, AstraZeneca, Cisco Systems and more, and founded her own company, KiKi Productions, Inc.

Today, as Coach Kiki, she guides sales professionals, small business owners and non-profit coordinators, teaching valuable skills that improve their bottom lines in the work world and enhance their personal lives. Through Coach Kiki & Kiddos, newly launched in 2022, she is expanding her aid to entrepreneuring families, helping every member of the household to SPEAK TRUTH WITH LOVE—particularly through her weekly newsletter, We Build Better Humans, that distills dozens of other social-emotional learning (SEL) subscription content in bite-sized reads for busy parents and educators. It is available for free—with paid bonus content—at

Using her proprietary system, The 3 Keys to Communication©, and practical tools like The BMT IndexTM, she coaches individuals, teams and family units to cycle out of fight-or-flight in the moment. Coaching philosophy: When you are confident, focused and authentic with your message, you are a magnet to those you wish to attract.
