I am an Educator, Environmentalist and Entrepreneur. I have a passion for everything "Green," because to me green is more than just a color it is a way of life.

For the past 15 years I have been working in the field of Complementary Alternative Medicine with a focus on plant based medicines. Through my educational and supply company, eoilco laboratories,llc., I have trained practitioners from every level of western and non-traditional medicine. Currently, I lecture at Miami Dade College, Barry University and the University of Miami.

From the classroom to the lab I have found that today's educated consumer no longer distinguishes between good for your body and good for your soul. Driven by over 70 million consumers, health and well-being is a holistic movement that strives for equilibrium between family, work and self. The new wellness is balance, and our motivation is the desire for vitality, control and serenity. Consumers perceive certain foods, beverages and personal care products as a way to achieve not only health benefits, but also lifestyle fulfillment. At eoilco laboratories, we make those products come to life.

Currently, I am on a mission to change how my city, Miami is being cleaned. To see the main ingredient that is being used by parks, municipalities, schools, universities and families visit

In my spare time I write a weekly blog for, a Wellness and Green Social Network. Sign-up to receive the weekly Wellness Guide.
