“She's pretty! She's funny!! She's a beast!!!”
The Dr. Kiana Dancie is a powerhouse actress, author, coach, comedian,
transformational speaker, and former CPR Cell Phone Repair Franchisee,
founder and director of B.A.G.S. a nonprofit organization.
Through "Baggage Claim," her international women's empowerment celebration,
she candidly and shares her story of being a child molestation survivor and how she turned
that pain into purpose — and, more importantly, how she teaches
others to do the same through laugh therapy and transparent conversations
designed to help attendees start their healing process.
During the pandemic, Kiana joined forces with organizations like Lift Atlanta and
Life Changers Christian Community Center to provide food and other essentials
to help alleviate the financial strain many experienced during that difficult time.
Additionally, she continues to spend countless hours working to heal broken
women and girls by giving them the tools to become more confident, emotionally
stable, and financially secure thru one-on-one and group sessions.
Due to her consistent activism, Kiana was recognized by the White House for her
humanitarian efforts to build stronger ties to the community through volunteering
and is a 2022 recipient of The President's Lifetime Achievement Award from
the Biden Administration. In 2023 she was awarded a
Honorary Doctorate in Humanitarianism from
Global International Alliance.
Kiana was one of the original hosts of the TV One nationally syndicated talk
show “Sister Circle Live”. Her amazing performance during the filming of Kevin
Hart’s LOL at the 2018 Montreal Comedy Festival led to her to be casted in two
movies – a BET feature, “One Crazy Christmas” and the Marlon Wayans Netflix
hit “Sextuplets.” Kiana has also toured with Kountry Wayne, Jess Hilarious
and has worked with Donnell Rawlings, Louis CK, Aida Rodriquez,
Earthquake, and most recently Dave Chappelle and Kevin Hart.
