Jesse Stukenberg business card identifies her as ‘Nurse Jesse’, but after listening to her story, one realizes that ‘Nurse’ Jesse is more than the traditional nurse who cares for a person’s physical needs. ‘Nurse’ Jesse is a person who in the broader sense of “nurse,” promotes trains, fosters and develops new dimensions of life in others, and in the process enhances that life in herself. After focusing too much on ‘checking the boxes;’ achieving socially acceptable goals, (i.e. academic degrees, ideal weight, marriage, kids, dream house) always striving…she woke up. She now views her life NOT as just a process of achieving specific external goals such weight loss or a job titles. Her goal is to change the way healthcare engages with the people they serve, viewing wellbeing as more than the just a healthy body but the whole person, including positive thinking and an expansive view of life, which includes a healthy mind, body and spirit.
