Following a move to St. George, Utah, Shauna and Richard were introduced to Young Living in 1995. Soon after, they decided to make a career change from their successful floor covering business and an overall lifestyle change through Young Living. Having no experience with network marketing, the Dastrups relied on their entrepreneurial spirits to build their Young Living business and found success through their leadership and business know-how.

Patricia Gwee has found her stride in Young Living. She’s been sharing her passion, enthusiasm, and love for the products and lifestyle and doesn’t plan on pulling back anytime soon. Her goal is to transform as many lives as possible through the power of pure essential oils and service with the underprivileged.
After receiving her Bachelor of Commerce degree with a major in marketing, Patricia started her first job in marketing research. She then became a recruiter, worked in human resources, and started collecting a range of skills working with people. Due to ongoing health concerns, Patricia quit her traditional career. She then began studying natural wellness.
Patricia was first introduced to Young Living after exhaustively searching for products that were naturally derived and effective for her and her family. She fell in love with Young Living and the versatile products that were quickly helping to support her family’s wellness goals.
In 2015, while juggling the demands of her family and a growing Young Living organization, she became a certified Integrative Health Coach after an intensive, year-long program with New York’s Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
Drawing from her wellness training and her deep belief in the power of naturally derived wellness solutions, Patricia continues sharing her zeal and passion for holistic wellness. She has found that Young Living’s products support her goal of helping others discover greater wellness in a remarkable way.

Mary joined Young Living in 1995 after listening to D. Gary Young lecture on the power of essential oils. Gary’s teachings answered many of the questions that she had about natural wellness. The lecture gave her the opportunity to experience the power of oils in her life and share that power with others.
A graduate of Western Michigan University, Mary taught physical education for 20 years. However, in 1980 she quit teaching, due to a prolonged illness. She decided to study natural healing and earned a PhD in Homeopathy and Nutrition from the Missouri College of Naturopathic Physicians in 1985. She continued to research natural healing until joining Young Living five years later.
She believes strongly that fulfillment in life comes from serving others, and she is grateful that Young Living helps her achieve that end. “My mission in life is to be a servant,” she says, “and Young Living has provided me with this wonderful opportunity.”
Dr. Hauser has been involved with Young Living since 2001, when she was introduced to the essential oils by a friend. When she met Gary and Mary for the first time, she knew that her purpose was to bring Young Living to Europe.
Markus’ first experience with essential oils came when Dr. Hauser introduced him to Joy™ oil blend and to the Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture™ kit. His life and well-being improved so much that he decided to become a Young Living member and share essential oils with others.
Says Dr. Hauser, “My partner Markus and I love to inspire, nourish, and teach from our hearts many different themes about these precious oils and all other YL products.”
Markus is similarly inspired by the vision of helping others through Young Living. “I was so impressed by the quality of the oils that I needed to share the opportunity of the Young Living lifestyle around the world,” he says. “Achieving financial freedom gave me even more possibilities to support our friends on their journeys to freedom!”
Of all Young Living’s products, Kathy is particularly passionate about Valor® and Joy™ essential oil blends and uses them daily. She loves seeing Young Living’s products and business opportunity change people’s lives and the passion and excitement that follow.

Prior to joining Young Living, Diane Mora worked for the Xerox Corporation for 25 years. Over the years she had learned a lot about health and network marketing and even tried joining a few other companies. However, she was completely smitten the first time she saw Gary Young speak in Denver in 1993. He was so dynamic and was an instant hit with everyone at the meeting. Many people enrolled that night, but Diane waited until June of 1995 to enroll with the sponsor of her choice, Marie Bustos, who Diane found was an excellent teacher and mentor.
She could see the company’s potential because of both Gary’s charisma and the wealth of excellent information about essential oils. She started traveling to teach with a member of her downline and found that everyone they spoke with was very receptive.
“I always tell my folks,” she says, “‘the bigger your commission check gets, the more people you have helped!’ It’s just great!”
Anita Ochsenhofer isn’t a rookie when it comes to network marketing. Her mother has more than 15 years of network marketing experience and continues to share the knowledge of the industry with her. Anita attributes much of her success to her parents’ great attention to instilling a sense of independence, education, and diligence in her.
Before Young Living, Anita’s career background ranged from the automotive industry to stock trading to massage therapy. Having a unique history has allowed Anita to support her business and support her Young Living downline every day—something that she feels is one of the most important routines for success.
Her Young Living momentum continues as she looks to continue growing her Young Living business. Anita’s definition of success is simple: setting and achieving goals that are connected to what matters most to her.

When Callie Shepherd was first introduced to Young Living’s essential oils, she incorporated the oils into her household as natural solutions to everyday problems. As a stay-at-home mom, she immediately saw the value in using naturally derived products, but it took over a year and a half to envision the products as a successful business. When she did realize the potential, she saw the value quickly. Sharing Young Living products gave Callie an additional sense of purpose outside of caring for her family, as well as an outlet that she says has made her a “better mom.” Her husband Jeremy recently left his work as a CFO to work with Callie, and now he takes care of the “backend” of business, which often involves paperwork, taxes, and statistics.
Being a stay-at-home mom and a successful business woman can be difficult, but Callie says that finding balance between personal and professional life isn’t about the arrival at balance. “I don’t have to figure it all out,” she explains. “I’m not going to arrive at this place where my time is perfect.” She prioritizes her family first, and lives by the mantra of “no regrets.” Callie’s daily goal of connecting or reconnecting with three new people every day helps her to live up to her principles of following the basics.
Callie and Jeremy have three children and have recently relocated to Texas.
Sharnael Wolverton loves public speaking, as well as training and coaching various groups of individuals who want to focus on their wellness. She uses Young Living products every day and has a strong conviction that they have changed her life and those of many others around her.
Kelli Wright attributes her drive to work hard and be her best self to her father’s example. Before joining Young Living, Kelli channeled this drive into the unique occupation of restoring, painting, and selling furniture. She was also an avid blogger in the DIY industry and a rep for her friend’s milk paint line for the state of Alabama. Young Living represented a completely different path for her.
Kelli’s friend Crystal Burchfield introduced her and her husband, Les, to Young Living. Though she never pressured her into joining the business, Crystal did coach Kelli in how to use the oils and prayed for the Wright family daily. “What sold me on Young Living,” Kelli says, “was the passion for the products and the remarkable quality that I believed would be difficult to find anywhere else on Earth.”
After discovering how essential oils impacted their family, Kelli became dedicated to sharing the products with others. It is her deepest passion to help fulfill Young Living’s mission of bringing pure, authentic essential oils to every home.
