Kimberly Button is the creator of Get Green Be Well, and is a green living enthusiast, journalist and founder of greenWell, an eco-wellness consulting company in Orlando, FL.

Button’s passion for natural, non-toxic living results from a childhood of mysterious medical conditions, including cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFIDS), Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) – all before even graduating from college. Because of Button’s previous health concerns and the subsequent battles to find out the cause and cure, her life took on a new mission to live as naturally and toxin-free as possible to nurture good health.

Button now helps families and businesses create greener, healthier living and working environments by providing consultations and speaking engagements through her company, greenWell. Her articles on healthy living, eco-travel and sustainability practices have appeared in publications such as Florida Travel + Life, Hobby Farm and BackHome.
