About Lisa

Jewelry Designer. Author. Inspirational Coach

Life is a question and how we live it is our answer.

Gary Keller

Certified Life Coach & Intuitive and Reiki Master

As a certified Life Coach and Intuitive, I help clients discover and embrace their best selves. 

Using the technology of the Biopulsar Reflexograph (Aura & Chakra scans) and practical life skills tools, I help people enhance their quality of life and gain a feeling of fulfillment. 

My exploration of energy has been a constant in my life. In 1992, I became a Reiki practitioner and later a Master.

I was so drawn to Reiki and the gentle power that it possesses. I had a Reiki practice but found I was being guided in a different direction. In 1993, I naively approached the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada explaining how Reiki works and how it would greatly benefit patients. That conversation led to pioneering two scientific research studies showing how Reiki decreases pain and improves the quality of life. Learn more about the studies here. Currently, I enjoy teaching Reiki and sharing this wonderful modality.

Lisa Fontanella


Proud Author of Crystal’s Quest, nationally recognized by the International Book Awards and Best Book Awards. 


Young readers embark on an adventure-filled quest and discovery of friendship, kindness, self-acceptance plus educational fun-facts and the healing properties of gemstones.

Each story revolves around Crystal and her beagle buddy, Noodle, and all the characters they meet. Readers can realize, experience, and reflect on the additional social issues about fitting in and accepting yourself for your uniqueness.

This inspiring chapter book is written for ages 7 – 11. Young readers, their parents, and teachers will enjoy the full color, creative format, the life lessons of each story, and the incorporation of gemstones and their meaning in daily life. The My Thought for Today and journal element within each story gives encouragement for journaling. A helpful resource for home and classroom.

The companion book, My Thoughts for Today – Guided Journal and Coloring book with writing prompts on topics of mindfulness, self-acceptance of others, sharing, feelings, and emotions is also available.

Lisa Fontanella loves writing and rocks. A wannabe rockhound, Lisa has spent many years learning about rocks, their properties, and feeling their energy. What better way to blend two of her passions – write a children’s book about rocks!

In addition to her You Rock! Series of young reader chapter books and companion My Thoughts for Today: Guided Journal and Coloring Book, she has written magazine and newspaper articles, newsletters, and promotional materials.

Lisa is a Reiki master (29 years and counting!), holistic practitioner and certified Life Coach. Lisa lives in Virginia and enjoys being near the water whether it be the ocean, river, lake, pond, or puddle.
