About KKBI





KKBI round logo

KKBI Creative Agency was founded because there was a missing piece to the traditional personal branding process.

Not any more.

To find your authentic voice, and create a branding strategy before we even think about platforms, templates, colors, or even messaging, you need to start the beginning - and that's YOU.

My life's work is and has been spent in service to others. I'm happy when I know I have a positive effect on someone else's life. And I always find a way to add fun.

Karen K. Bannister CIC CLC

Your brand starts with YOU.

Your image. Your energy. Your surroundings. Your mindset. Your goals.

Karen K Bannister CIC CLC

founder/ceo and creative director

My passion is being the catalyst for others to reach their goals. Authenticity and agency for others guide all I do. 


I am a certified image consultant and certified life coach. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with my BS in Business Administration, Organizational Leadership, and have worked in the corporate world (both private and public), supporting executives and leading in the C-suite, for 30 years.


​After realizing I had already been planning, training, and coaching and helping countless executives and peers achieve their goals, I am making my creative, design, image, and marketing skills available to you to achieve your vision.

We're going to work closely together, you should know me!

  • I'm an amazing dancer and former majorette.

  • Pursuer of luxury and lifestyle-enhancing experiences.

  • I possess an intuitive, confident yet vulnerable, and open nature.

  • I'm direct, challenging, and honest - but also kind, supportive and encouraging. I'm engaged with and powered by energy received from the universe. 

  • Reiki Master and Energy-Infused Empath

  • First Fashion and Lifestyle Writer/Editor of the Orange County Business Journal

  • Author of Close the Gap: 7 Transformational Steps to Move You From Today to Tomorrow ​

  • Mom to a perfect, adult-age son (I may be biased, but it's true.)

  • I love animals and have two senior cats, Bobo and Baby.

  • I probably wear too much black, but I love it so much.

  • Not intimidated by fear and it doesn’t stop me from trying anything.

  • I seek and embrace vulnerability, change, and confrontation. They're all positive things in my life.
