Stress Management Speaker – Humor in the Workplace-How to tackle change using humor!~
Humor in the Workplace – tackling change and burnout with humor.
We seem to have traded in our punchlines for pants suits. It’s time to get back
to finding the levity in life and enjoying its many benefits. Why do we seem to fall off the levity ledge around 25 years old? You don’t have to. Yes, you can still present a professional persona and be fun, funny, and bring that into your workplace.
Funny Nurse’s Speaker ~
I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. (no, not near Tiger King) I had the same Doctor and school nurse for 10 years. There is something very special about that.
I yearned to be a Candy Striper at the local hospital, but we didn’t
have the money to buy the little red pin stiped dress. The yearning for the dress went away but my wanting to help people remained. I didn’t get to be a candy striper because my teacher sent home a letter for my parents to sign and mis-spelled the word Striper. My dad hit the roof thinking at 13 I was wanting to be a stripper named ‘Candy.”
I know the power of laughter as well as the healing power of laughter firsthand as I experienced it during my journey with breast cancer. I am now 12 years cancer free and attribute a lot of that to the excellent care I received from my healthcare team including my nursing angels during that difficult time. It is always my pleasure to ‘give back’ and help make their confence or meeting a huge success! I love to EDU_TAIN!
For the last fifteen or so years I have been speaking and “Edu_taining” hundreds of different kinds of healthcare groups including nurses! I say I ‘EDU_TAIN’ because in my Presentation’s I share tools, take-away, facts, statistics, personal stories, and observations which are delivered through the vehicle of hilarious comedy! And you just might shed a tear or two. I have worked as an award-winning stand-up comedian for 25 years (yep, I’m getting old!) but that
gives me a tremendous advantage over others in the Speaking industry. I don’t have to try…
I am funny!
One of my important goals with nurses is to encourage them to take care of themselves!
I’ve found over the years they tend to put themselves last. “Put your oxygen mask on first!” “Get that mammogram and yearly checkup! We need you!
Nurses have told me that they don’t feel appreciated. This was even before the pandemic. Having heard that a lot I make sure they know how very appreciated they have been and are. Seeing their faces when I say this is worth the hundreds of times, I’ve been stranded in an airport waiting to catch a plane to get to an event.
Stress relief and ‘Addiction to stress’ is covered. The term “addiction to stress’ was pointed out to me at a nursing conference I was speaking at in Miami by several in attendance. I was shocked, fascinated and dove right into asking them questions, researched it and it is now a section covered in my presentation. What’s the payoff? How do you recover from it? What they can do.
How you can turn stress into a positive instead of a negative and coping mechanisms are introduced. I guarantee participants will leave feeling renewed, laughing, excited and remember why they became a nurse. And maybe even remember a funny story or two. The cherry on top – they get CEU credit!
“A Merry Heart does good like a medicine – Proverbs 17:22
I discuss Laughter’s tremendous health benefits, why incorporating humor in the workplace (yes, event in the medical profession) is so vital and how to do it. I demonstrate how humor affects your attitude which in turn affects how you operate and cooperate at work. I also share healthy and positive coping strategies using as many smiles as possible along the way!

Women’s Event Speaker ~
Do women always agree? Do they always get along? Finding a mentor is so important and keeping a positive attitude is essential to succeed. You don’t have to trade in your sense of humor for a pants suit! Levity is a powerful tool in business- learn how and why.

Understanding how laughter and having a sense of humor are very important ingredients in the prevention of a heart attack and keeping healthy afterward. Laughter lowers blood pressure, massages the heart and reduces stress hence giving an overall sense of well-being.
