Lisa DeLong, RN Speaker Biography

Known as the “Joyful Shaman,” Lisa bridges the gap between tragedy and triumph in a surprisingly joyful way! She has more than forty years of experience in healthcare and life transformation. She believes whole heartedly that attending to the inner spirit opens us up to our authentic nature and brings us joy personally and professionally.


“Miracles manifest through people—people like you!”


Lifetime Experience

Lisa’s first-born son, Justin, passed at the age of fifteen in 2000 after a ten-year remission from leukemia. Shockingly, six years later, her youngest son, Jacob, was diagnosed with the same kind of leukemia. He has completed treatments and is now a healthy adult! As one would imagine, these were challenging times much like we are experiencing now during this global pandemic. Through decades of her sons’ cancer treatments, Lisa lived the experience of being quarantined, wearing masks, and fearing being infected by others. Her message is filled with first-hand insights on how to thrive, even in the midst of crisis and devastating loss.

Lisa defines a miracle as a change in perception which leads to wonder and awe. As an international speaker, author, bereavement facilitator, ballroom dancer and mom, she weaves together insights from ancient wisdom and modern thought to inspire audiences with a powerful head to heart message using storytelling, writing prompts, dance, and humor. Audiences are transformed as they recognize the valuable gems hidden within their life experiences and remember who they truly are. 

Her memoir, BLOOD Brothers, is a heart expanding must read especially in times like these. It is a true ally for anyone experiencing loss. It is required reading for nursing students interested in learning how to improve their connection with patients through understanding the patient experience.

Lisa experiences miracles often! She lives a joyful life in Southern California and Oregon with her husband of 37 years. Her two adult daughters, son and childhood dog, Poochini, are alive and well. Her family remains close and surprisingly sane!

Lisa has presented for

  • Studer Group Conferences
  • Trillium Health
  • New Jersey League of Nurses National Conference
  • Children's Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition
  • End of Life Nurse Education Consortium (ELNEC)
  • Pediatric Nurses Association
  • Oncology Nurses Association
