Ritzi Lam provides legal counsel to See The Lord. After witnessing Kelly’s commitment to improve people’s physical and spiritual lives, Ritzi was moved to join the organization.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Kelly-colorT.jpg
Kelly Kao, O.D.

PAST CEO/PRESIDENT

See the Lord grew out of a daughter’s desire to live out her mother’s wishes. In 2011, Kelly Kao was inspired by a vision of her late mother encouraging her to combine the three things Kelly is most passionate about (healthcare, spreading God’s word, and education) into something she could share with others. Since then, the organization has grown.

As the past CEO of STL, Kelly oversaw and implemented operations both internationally and domestically. She enjoyed going out on the field for mission trips and also training other trip leaders. Her goal for STL is for its services to one day be accessible in any country by anyone at anytime, so that anyone who has not witnessed the unconditional love of God can see Him through our ministry.

Kelly holds a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences with Honors from the University of California, Davis and a Doctor of Optometry with Honors from the University of California, Berkeley School of Optometry. Kelly is a past faculty member at the University of California, Berkeley School of Optometry. She is currently practicing in a private clinic in Mountain View, CA at STL Optometry (which stands for “See the Light” and is the offshoot of See the Lord). STL Optometry is a clinic dedicated to promoting goodness by sending doctors on missions, supporting companies that donate glasses to the underserved, and mentoring the next generation of eye care professionals.

Henry Shu, MBA

PAST CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

As an early member of See the Lord, Henry Shu helped with the initial work of establishing the non-profit organization. He previously served as Chief Financial Officer and now as a board member. Henry is a trained scientist who contributed to healthcare through basic research in the labs for many years. Inspired by Kelly’s tenacious faith in doing what God was calling her to do, he decided to join See The Lord. He considers it providential that, just as he returned from business school, he was able to use his MBA right away for something that makes people’s lives better while also spreading the faith. Outside of STL, he has taught Sunday school and is involved with high school youth ministry at San Jose Chinese Catholic Mission.

Henry holds a Bachelor of Arts in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California, Berkeley and an MBA from The University of Texas at San Antonio. In his spare time, he enjoys reading and working in the yard.

Judy Chang, MBA

PAST VP OF HUMAN RESOURCES

As See the Lord’s Vice President of Human Resources, Judy Chang assisted with HR programs and policies, created current volunteer processes, and developed recruiting activities, among other responsibilities. In July 2014, Judy went on a STL mission trip to an early development center in Kaohsiung. She describes it as the “most amazing experience,” as her interactions with the children there opened her eyes to the innocence and sincerity we often lose as we grow older. An adventurer at heart, Judy has been skydiving, scuba diving, and in 2014, she visited a new city or country almost every two months.
