With a passion to help others stay mentally and physically healthy, doTERRA Wellness Advocate and social worker Lisa Chau has been volunteering her time and skills to Orange County Health Care Agency and Kaiser Permanente. Lisa began volunteering with Orange County Health Care Agency in 2002 and later moved to Kaiser Permanente where she now volunteers as a psychiatric social worker and collaborates with Orange County Health Care Agency.

To Lisa, “helping others is what is most important in life,” and the work she is doing for these programs exemplifies that belief.
