Consultant Spotlight: Deena Evans Shares Her Passion for Community Service
Each month Lemongrass Spa Products spotlights a consultant and that consultant’s successes in both business and personal life. This month Deena Evans, Director from Colorado Springs, Colorado expresses her enthusiasm for giving back to those in need. Also a full-time nurse, Deena said, “when I was asked to tell you a bit about things I do in my community, I felt quite honored, as I'm passionate about so many things in my community and my world!”
Deena began her Lemongrass Spa Products journey over four years ago as a customer ordering facial care products and attending spa parties. “I was drawn to Lemongrass Spa by being invited to a party and needing face care products. I ordered them and loved them! I was invited to several parties and finally my husband told me I should become a consultant at least to get the discount, so I did! After doing my 3 parties, I realized people really loved the products and it was easy to sell...and the more I learned about chemicals in daily life from my up line, the more I loved Lemongrass Spa and felt I needed to share its fabulousness with everyone!” she said.
Her desire to help people through outreach sets Deena apart, and it starts in her own community. According to Deena, “people in my local community are hurting and need to be served and loved!” Deena volunteers at the Dream Centers of Colorado Springs Women's Clinic each week using her medical training to perform pelvic ultrasounds on female patients who are uninsured or underinsured because she loves “treating people who are feeling 'less than' with utmost respect and love.”
Passionate about helping those who have been rescued from human trafficking, Deena also volunteers for Sak Saum, an organization based in Cambodia “that teaches a trade (sewing, jewelry making, etc.) to guys and girls that have been rescued from the trafficking industry and need a way to be free...from poverty and their past.” You can find Deena volunteering at events “where the [Sak Saum] products are sold and am able to share the story, which I love!”
Deena’s outreach extends beyond the confines of her community. She’s traveled to the island of La Gonave, Haiti several times where there is a mission hospital and compound. Traveling with a small group of medical professionals, including the doctor with whom she’s worked for 18 years and his wife, Deena uses her medical skills to assist in surgery and in educating the Haitian nurses who work there. She states it is her pleasure and privilege to be given the opportunity to develop “great relationships and friendships with the nurses there, as well as the joy of helping serve the Haitian people medically.”
When asked what drives her to give back to people in need, Deena exclaimed, “none of the things I do would mean a thing if I didn't have the love of Jesus to share with the people I'm serving! He is the reason I live and breathe, and what I do for those around me is slight compared to the magnitude of what He has done for them...and me!” Deena believes the key is “finding your passion and GOING with it!”
