She is the author of The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home (Adams Media), green living columnist for Vibrant Life magazine, and creator of the Orlando Green Travel app (Sutro Media).
Button’s passion for creating a healthy home results from a childhood of mysterious medical conditions, including Wilm’s Tumor ( a childhood kidney cancer), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFIDS), Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) – all before even graduating from college. After a decade of 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.
Her articles on healthy living, eco-travel and sustainability practices have appeared in national publications such as Martha Stewart’s Whole Living, National Geographic Traveler, American Airlines’ American Way, and Sierra. She is often quoted as a green living expert in the media, including major outlets such as U.S. News and World Report, The Washington Post, and Woman’s World. See her most recent media mentions.

She has appeared on networks such as NBC, FOX, CBS, ION, RTV and My Family Channel.
