Meet Your Wellness Coach, Dr. Kay Fontana

Welcome to Light of Abundance Wellness Coaching! I'm Dr. Kay and I am so happy you have landed here on your journey to optimal wellness. 

I have dedicated the last several years researching and learning in the areas of holistic health and wellness. I am a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner, an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Master Practitioner, and am certified as a Holistic Life, Wellness, Brain Fitness, and Stress Management Coach. I received my Ed.D. from Grand Canyon University with the doctoral dissertation, “Mindfulness and Compassion: A Phenomenological Study of Hospice Dementia Care Volunteers.” My research emerged from my experience watching my mother walk the journey with Alzheimer’s until her death in hospice care, which also led to my work as a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and a Compassionate Bereavement Care Provider.

In my work with grieving individuals and families, I noticed an overwhelming need to change the healthcare system. As each individual shared their loved one’s battle with their diseases, I saw chronic and life-limiting illness being treated with the same medications that failed to change the course of their disease. Additionally, I witnessed chronic and life-limiting illness strike my own family. While dealing with diabetes for nearly 20 years and vascular disease, my husband was diagnosed with cancer (now in remission). I was also diagnosed with diabetes, while other family members have agonized over Crohn’s disease, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. 

My concern for health turned into a passion for finding holistic methods for those suffering from illness and “dis-ease.” It became my mission to make a difference and help those experiencing chronic or life-limiting illness achieve optimal wellness by exploring alternative treatments and help individuals connect heart, mind, body, and soul for an abundant life. 

Although I would love to save the world, I can only do it one individual at a time. Therefore, I hope you will join me in this quest and be open to new ideas that have been tested and found to be successful in treating chronic and life-limiting illness, including those my family and I have used.
