Prior to joining doTERRA, I was a leader in the non-profit, social entrepreneurship space in China. In particular, my heart exploded with passion when I first experienced the heartbreaking orphan-care crisis right in our neighborhoods. Something had to be done and I thought, "If not me, who? If not now, when?" I spearheaded a number of initiatives:
Instrumental in the founding of a substantial orphan care organization called The Baobei Foundation (“precious baby”).
Played a major role in the planning and execution of two regional concert tours with Steven Curtis Chapman, being the first government approved Christian concert in China to raise funds for orphan care.
A dream come true for me was to help launch the Shanghai Healing Home. Within 8 years they have helped over 80 babies with cleft lip/palettes receive the care they need and find their forever families. I then started seeing so many women doing amazing things to care for the orphan, that I started Project James 127 under the Women of Joy ministry, which tracks orphan and widow causes in the community and connects the needs with the right community.
I served on the Board of Shanghai Chosen Families for 5 years. Their mission is to share information & resources and support for children's educational and emotional needs while living in Shanghai, with emphasis on learning disabilities, ADHD and identifying alternative educational solutions such as home schooling or boarding schools.
In 2012 I worked with Compassion International to have their first presence in China through the Global Leadership Summit. We were able to get 90 children around the world sponsored through this event
