It Makes Me Happy




"With abundant energy and passion, transforming theory into action."


Emotional health concerns have a significant impact on work performance. Each day, most employees walk into work distracted by a personal issue. Despite this, emotional health remains a taboo topic at the workplace and persons often push aside normal emotions to force positivity.
These sessions offer a fresh perspective and new take on mindfulness, gratitude, and resilience to address thoughts which lead to anxiety and increased stress levels and flip them to improve overall wellbeing and job performance. Nurse Jesse offers ideas in TED Talk-style presentations, “It Makes Me Happy” and “The Secret World of Self,” with skill-building exercises and take-away worksheets to easily apply the concepts within your teams.


Jesse Stukenberg, a.k.a. Nurse Jesse, promotes, trains, fosters and develops new dimensions of life in others. Her passion and authenticity inspires individuals on their unique journeys. Her mission is to help people realize their inherent worth and awaken their truest self so they can joyfully achieve. Now, her ‘job’ is her personal mission or ministry, rather than a project or function or series of actions to be carried out. Jesse has been married to her husband, Ben since January 2000 and they have two daughters. She enjoys reading, writing, running, dance, paddle boarding, yoga, skate skiing, boating, hiking, traveling and climbing mountains. She is a firm believer that “all learn and all teach” empowering others to share their gifts for the good of all.

Nurse Jesse and Karla became acquainted working together for the business to business division of a local healthcare system. Karla gave Jesse a copy of the It Makes Me Happy book, published by the Goddesses. According to Jesse, “When Karla gave me that little book, IT ROCKED MY WORLD. It showed me that little things I can do in my everyday life can bring moments of happiness. Happiness wasn’t a destination that I could arrive at if I just checked all these boxes. It was something I could create through these little moments. I wanted to share the It Makes Me Happy message with the world!”


“It Makes Me Happy, LLC provided a training program for our membership that focused on the important concept of emotional wellbeing. Nurse Jesse and Karla shared stark and surprising statistics about the prevalence of emotional issues and how these issues affect productivity, performance and engagement on the job. But even more importantly, their training normalized, and humanized, this complex topic to bring it to the forefront when working with employees and developing organizational wellbeing strategies. The training focuses on widening perspective about emotional issues and offers techniques to use both personally and professionally in the spirit of improving emotional wellbeing. Nurse Jesse and Karla bring value through their training for audiences such as: managers and leaders, workplace wellness-focused professionals, HR teams and general team-building.”
