James & Roxane Bybee US Founder
Roxane has experience with the corporate side of network marketing. She worked as an International Market Manager for a large direct sales company. It was during this time that Roxane recognized the power of the direct sales business model. Despite this, James and Roxane were hesitant to get involved with dōTERRA because of their previous network marketing experience.
The quality dōTERRA products quickly changed the Bybee’s outlook. Roxane says, “When I began using essential oils and they worked, I couldn’t stop talking about them.” Love of the products quickly turned into a business opportunity. James says, “The housing market crash took its toll on us financially. Because of the dōTERRA business opportunity, we don’t have to base our financial future on real estate as we did before.” dōTERRA has allowed the Bybees to take part in a cause. As leaders in dōTERRA, they are passionate about sharing the hope they found. Roxane says, “It is incredible to see others recognize this opportunity and then share and grow because they want to."

Andy & Natalie Goddard US Founder
Early in their marriage, Natalie and Andy ran a non-profit, family-life, education institute. During this time, the Goddards moved to Cedar Hills, Utah. As a home schooling parent, Natalie was eager to find friends for her children. One day Natalie felt impressed to approach Jen Kelly. Upon learning that Natalie was interested in holistic health, Jen invited her to attend a class on dōTERRA essential oils in her home.
After experiencing dōTERRA essential oils, Natalie understood how beneficial they could be. Natalie explains, “I realized as a family life educator I needed to focus on families achieving better health before focusing on improving family relationships.” Today Natalie and Andy have a clear vision of their purpose—to provide healing in every home. Their lives have been blessed physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and financially because of dōTERRA, and they thrive on helping others achieve the same success.
Roger & Teresa Harding US Founder
When Teresa was first introduced to dōTERRA, she thought, “Multi-level marketing and voodoo oils—two things I won’t ever get behind.” After having a powerful experience with essential oils, Teresa realized she was wrong. The quality of the dōTERRA products drew her to the company, and she became one of the first dōTERRA consultants.
Teresa focused on the needs of others as she shared the product. This helped her become one of the first US Founders. Teresa realized that the same individuals who enjoyed the product could benefit financially from the business opportunity. She has been empowering leaders to build successful businesses. Recently Teresa’s husband, Roger, joined her efforts in building the dōTERRA business. He enjoys strategizing with and mentoring leaders while still practicing dentistry a few days a week. Teresa and Roger’s current motto for life is, “Risk more than others think safe; care more than others think wise; dream more than others think practical; and expect more than others think possible.”
Justin & Kerri Harrison US Founder
Justin and Kerri Harrison, along with their five boys, are living their dream. After resigning from his position as director of sales at a large, international network marketing company, Justin was considering a different career option. It was during this time that he received a call from Dr. David Hill, who requested he not make any decisions until they talked.
Justin discovered that Dr. Hill and other respected business professionals were going to bring a new standard of therapeutic-grade essential oils to the world. They wanted him to be their first consultant. With the support of his wife, Kerri, Justin committed their future to dōTERRA. Although this was a leap of faith, the Harrisons moved forward with confidence. Justin explained, “It was scary to leave the security, benefits, and salary of a corporate position. People thought we were crazy, but we knew it was the right move.” Both Justin and Kerri agree that the sacrifice was worth it. dōTERRA has not only provided them financial independence, but has opened up amazing opportunities for them to serve.
Without knowing it, Hayley Hobson had for years been building the ideal network and experience for a dōTERRA business. She worked as a yoga and Pilates teacher, a health coach, and managed a major health club in Colorado before she joined dōTERRA. “What I love about dōTERRA is that I’ve been able to use my background in everything—sales, marketing, managing, and my passion for health and wellness all tie together in this business.”
Hayley had resigned from the health club with the determination to start her own business when she found dōTERRA essential oils. She loved them and joined on as a product user before she quickly discovered what dōTERRA could do for her business. “In the beginning, I thought I was just going to be selling essential oils to my already existing clients, but now I’ve been able to use this platform to draw more people into my business.” She’s found that she enjoys managing her downline almost as much as educating people on a more holistic lifestyle. Hayley was the Grand Prize winner of the Tulum 2014 dōTERRA Incentive Trip, and she continues to thrive as one of the fastest-growing leaders in dōTERRA.
Paul & Betsy Holmes
Both Paul and Betsy have always had a passion for traveling the world. They have been to over 70 countries combined, but came back to the states primarily for Betsy to finish her massage therapy license. Paul studied in South Africa and received his degree in exercise physiology, a field he is passionate about. In America, Paul became a personal trainer and then later opened his own specialized training facility. Betsy helped support their family financially early in their marriage, but was then able to leave the work force to embrace her dream of being a stay-at-home mom.
Although Betsy was thrilled to be staying home with her children, her health was getting in the way of truly enjoying life. She was suffering from three chronic auto-immune diseases, and the medication she was given kept her in a downward spiral and she never felt like she was getting better. When Betsy was introduced to essential oils she found what she needed to get her health and life back. As Betsy started to use the oils in her home, she couldn’t help but share her positive experiences with others. Before she knew it, her organization was growing. She started to look at the compensation plan and realized that if she became intentional with her efforts, she really could grow her business. Betsy says, “Everyday with dōTERRA won’t be easy, but when we rely on one another, teach one another, and strengthen one another, we will all grow upwards in success.”

David & Tawnya Hsiung TWN Founder
David and Tawnya Hsiung grew up in Taiwan. David majored in electrical engineering and initially worked as a human resource trainer. But he eventually joined the family business—professional cosmetic sales. David and his wife, Tawnya, moved to the United States in 2001. In the US, the Hsuings formed their own company, which imported and exported professional health equipment, to aid the family business in Taiwan.
In 2009, after some persuasion, David joined dōTERRA. David became a consultant to help a friend. He didn’t plan on profiting in any way from the experience. David’s attitude changed as he experienced the quality products and the integrity of the company. It seemed natural for David and Tawnya to begin sharing dōTERRA products with their friends and family. They decided to first focus on the success of others and, as a result, their own success followed. David says, “I never want to lose the fire, so I just keep sharing with new people.”
Steven & Monica Hsiung TWN Founder

Steven and Monica have focused their efforts toward helping others.

Laura’s previous experience allowed her to be open to the dōTERRA opportunity. Laura says, “As soon as I realized that these products were what I had been looking for, I committed. I made a list of the individuals I thought would benefit from the product or the business and began making calls.” When the income from dōTERRA surpassed the family income, Jerry was able to leave his job and join Laura. Jerry and Laura are fully dedicated to sharing dōTERRA. They love how dōTERRA essential oils empower individuals.
