In this episode of Your Story Medicine, I welcome Dr. Kiki Steiner, DMA, (she/they/siya [sha]) a holistic vocal coach, decolonization consultant, and choral conductor. She is currently serving as an adjunct instructor of music at Millikin University in the Choral Conducting and Music Education area. As the founder of Decolonizing Kiki LLC, her work as a holistic vocal coach focuses on empowering others to connect with their voice through releasing shame around one’s voice as well as facilitating self-led healing.

Main Topics Discussed:

  • Life as a “transracial adoptee”
  • Using your voice to manifest liberation for your community
  • Rerooting oneself in a predominantly white culture
