Meet the Team
As a wife, a mom with a background in healthcare and no background in business, it continues to amaze me that I have built a multi-million dollar international business and maintain the position of being the TOP earning woman in Unicity in North America. I have an incredibly supportive husband who "lets me be me" and two fabulous daughters, that were understanding everytime I was on a phone call building my business! Being able to accomplish this and do it all from my home with my family at my side is something you just can't put a price on. My husband retired from practicing medicine after 25 years when my income exceeded his!
I love everything Unicity stands for. Their global objective to "Make Life Better" and their genuine concern, love, and loyalty to their business partners in the field.
Alongside that, my heart is with my team. Their diverse cultures and how their various ethnicities have taught me incredible life lessons. Unicity International has been a life enhancing experience for me.
I can't imagine ever doing anything else that would be as satisfying as expanding the Unicity World around the world.

Emmanuel Obi, Registered Pharmacist
My name is Emmanuel Obi, married to Maryann Obi. I have been a Pharmacist for
over 30 years and I have owned two drug stores. In my over 30 years of practice
as a pharmacist, I have never come across a single product that has so many
positive pharmacological impact on humans, yet with no side effect. Bios Life
Slim is a product that makes life better for all. I have lost a total of about
21lbs with this product.
Annie T. Varughese MD, FACC
Advanced Cardiovascular Care Center
I have been using Bioslife Slim in my clinical practice for the past 2 1/2 years
and have found it to be of great help for my patients regarding the lowering of
cholesterol and the stabilization of blood glucose levels. BiosLife Slim has
also significantly contributed
to substantial weight loss among my patients as well .
BiosLife Slim and now BiosLife Slim G are the Hallmarks of treatment for my patients with Hyperlipidemia and Obesity as well as Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes--and the management of all of these entities in essence leads to the reduction of cardiovascular disease and for this I salute Unicity and the scientists who took initiative to develop this product 20 years ago.
Thank you Unicity for touching lives around the world and for allowing me to be a small vessel of encouragement in the prevention of heart attack and stroke to millions of people worldwide

My background is in the medical field as a Family Nurse
Practitioner and Diabetes Specialist. After spending 13 years in Family
Practice, I spent another 15 years in the specialty of diabetes. When I chose to
leave clinical practice a few years ago, I started my own business to focus on
educating health care professionals about diabetes and to continue to help those
who live with this challenging disease. What I am passionate about is what
Unicity is passionate about: preventing diabetes and controlling glucose for
those who have it. The research is solid and reinforced each time someone is on
Slim. Unicity is a company I trust and provides products I can recommend without
With over 20 years in the network marketing arena and being on the internet since it began, Gerry has always had a passion for helping people succeed.
Creating many fantastic relationships and learning internet marketing from some of the best in the industry, Gerry felt it was time to give back.
Gerry has developed 6 figure incomes with 3 different companies and knows what it takes to succeed in the home business arena.
And now with Unicity's proven science and rank based economic model, there's nothing like it in the network marketing arena, it's a whole new ball game.
Evelyn and Carlos Monroig
In our experience of 26 years in the network marketing industry has never seen a
company that had everything ..... excellent products of which 12 are in the PDR,
a compensation plan that has no special competence and management that knows the
field. The opportunity to develop business in 30 countries with Unicity is a
possibility for anyone with Internet access and that want to build a business
from home ... We believe that after 26 years in the industry and after won
millions, at last we found the company and the support team that will help us
build for the last time. Unicity and MLB Global the perfect formula.
Laura Fernandes, MD FACC
I am an interventional cardiologist in private practice for over 10 years. I have for the last two years introduced to my patients a breakthough approach for sustainable cardiovascular prevention.
Bios Life Slim and the 13 week coaching program have tremendously supported my
patients on the improvement and reversal of multiple cardiovascular risk
factors. The incredible simultaneous effect on LDL/HDL/triglycerides
normalization associated with the resolution of glucose intolerance, and marked
weight loss standout as a unique natural approach. Moreover, Bios Life Slim
supports life style changes and enhances the overall well-being feeling allowing
an environment for the long term solution of the devastating global epidemics of
diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
Jen Birge MS,RD,CDE
Promoting fiber-rich foods and supplements as a dietitian is what led me to Bios LIfe Slim and Unicity International.
Supplementing my income initially, and now being able to work from home and truly be the stay-at-home mom that I enjoy
being is both professionally and personally satisfying. I've found that I have helped more people with my business and
Bios Life Slim than I EVER could working as a dietitian or diabetes educator in a traditional setting.
I suppose the most amazing part is that I have a Unicity business that is generating over 2 Millions dollars in annual revenues.
I am a mother of 5 children; all girls and my background is mainly being a "home engineer", so I never had experience on how to run a business, in fact, I had not even spoken in public. After my husband reviewed the data about some of the products from Unicity, specifically Bioslife Slim and he got convinced about its efficacy and real life results, I decided to participate in this unique endeavor. It was then thanks to the help of my up line; Jan Bloom and Dr. Laura Fernandez that my business took off and I am currently a Presidential Sapphire. The trips to Puerto Rico and the global convention in Korea have been extremely stimulating and my business continues to grow.
Unicity has been a unique experience. My family and I continue to enjoy several of the many great products from Unicity and I believe they have made a significant difference in our well being.
"If during our life we are going to consume vitamins, and supplements in an intermittently manner", "why not use the products that have data, are known to be safe and at the same time allow ourselves to participate in such a great business".

I have been in private practice at Orthopedic Center in Palm Beach County, Florida since August, 1994. I received my medical degree from the University of Miami and undergraduate degree from University of Pennsylvania. As a Physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician), I specialize in the rehabilitation of patients with injuries and diseases affecting the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. This includes minor problems such as sprains and strains, and more severe injuries including strokes, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
Some of my treatment options include physical and occupational therapy, medications, and injections. I also incorporate my training in Acupuncture to assist with pain management. I have been able to use Bios Life Slim with my patients within the musculoskeletal realm to reduce weight, thereby helping to alleviate joint pain.
Dawn Graubert, M.S.Ed.
I am a believer that people and events enter your life for a reason. I became interested in Slim as a consumer to help many of my family members and have subsequently developed an independent business.
I have a Master's Degree in Special Education from the University of Miami and come from a family with a strong medical background. My father is a practicing Pediatrician with whom I work with. I am successfully using Slim in Pediatrics for childhood obesity as well as high cholesterol.
Raising our family has been my greatest accomplishment! Starting my own business while our kids are almost out of the house has been an opportunity for me to be proactive in our future and achieving financial independence. Unicity has enabled my husband and me to work our "Plan B" together for the next stage of our lives.

insurance industry for 12 years, which is suffering greatly. Unicity has opened
many doors for us, not only financially, but for our health. We have improved

after trying every diet around. We have been able to help others as well.

Cathy Hart, MD
I have had quite a journey in my life. I have lived in 9 different states in
the US and one Canadian Province, from south rural Alabama, to Vancouver, to
northern Maine and Vermont, to Houston, with numerous stops in between! After
having our daughter, my husband and I settled in the Houston area where the rest
of my immediate family also lives. After undergraduate school at Oberlin College
I had a career in the field of developmental disabilities - I was the program
director for group homes for adults with mental retardation and mental illness.
6 years after I graduated from Oberlin I entered medical school at the
University of Vermont College of Medicine. I completed a Family Medicine
residency in Greenwood, South Carolina, in 2001. After having suffered through
multiple different types of medical practice structures, I have spent the past
three years growing my own solo private practice. It was at the time I opened my
new practice that I was introduced to Bios Life Slim, and my life journey took a
turn I would never have foreseen!
What has impressed me about Unicity? I was initially attracted to Unicity by the quality of products and the caliber of the research supporting their use. What has kept me with Unicity for 3 years and counting is the quality of the people associated with the company - from the corporate leadership to my fellow franchise partners.

Maryann W Gibbons, PA-C
As a Physicain Assistant for thirteen years in South Jersey, I have praticed in Rheumatology, Acute Rehabilitation and currently in Family Practice.
I have a wonderful son, Brendan, who is a first-year law student. My association with Unicity as a franchise owner began three years ago when I was working in an Acute Rehabilitation hospital. There I saw the results of obesity, cardiovascular problems and diabetes. It was then that I became dedicated to and vigilant about Preventive Health. Unicity was the perfect partner to help me reach my goal of changing peoples' lives for the better.
Now and in the future, I am looking forward to helping family, friends, patients and
customers improve their health, transform their lives both physically and financially, and therefore "Make Their Lives Better".
Practice Manager in my husbands Gastroenterology Medical Practice
After taking Bios Life Slim myself, I was happy to discover that it really does deliver the promised results. I have now expanded my business internationally, and have had the opportunity to travel to other countries and meet people from diverse backgrounds. We have had such a great personal experience with Bios Life Slim and other products that my husband now recommends them to his patients as well.
I LOVE helping people become Healthier and to lead Better Lives!
Unicity excels in integrity and truly represents every standard I look for when I am putting my credibility on the line.
A near fatal car accident led me to quit an unfulfilling government job and embrace what invigorates me: being an exceptional wife to my high school sweetheart, and allowing my ambitious entrepreneurial spirit to make a significant impact on the lives of others. As a naturally gifted leader, speaker, and teacher, I've become the author and business success coach known as "The Living Better Expert." It is my pleasure to mentor and inspire others to experience greater health, wealth, and happiness - to truly "live better."
Imagine the joy I experience spending my day with talented, supportive, individuals worldwide who actively work together to make life better and you'll easily understand why I am amazed by Unicity.
Dr. Matt Silver
As a board certified MD specializing in Family Practice physician, I was always
interested in helping my patients find better health through lifestyle change,
especially by recommending nutritional supplements and natural alternatives to
drugs. This eventually led me to investigate network marketing as a means to
help inspire and empower more people to greater health and financial well-being
by introducing them to cutting-edge products and the income opportunity
available in promoting them. Now, after 35 years in the network marketing
industry and having been a top-earner for over 16 years since retiring from
medical practice, I feel both privileged and honored to be part of the Making
Life Better Team with Unicity International.
As far as Unicity itself is concerned, I'll simply say that I consider this company, its products, and its compensation plan to represent the very finest that the direct sales industry has to offer. As the saying goes "Quality recognizes quality" and that is the primary reason why our company is attracting some of the best and finest from within the healthcare industry as well as from the business community at large.
In my heart of hearts, I feel that the future of Unicity and all who decide to affiliate with it through the Making Life Better Team will be one of unparalleled success!

A successful mother of 4 and a proud grandmother of 5 in Chicago, Illinois.
Her 14 years in business, as a business leader, where she served as Vice-President
and Co-Owner of a Chicago-based family owned corporation, gives her an unusually
broad base of experience with which she is able to apply all of her skills as a
Unicity Franchise partner. She loves the aspect of the business model, in that
you do not have to stock any product at your home or office (unless you choose to),
and the fact that Unicity Franchise partners are able to use the Unicity warehouses
to facilitate the inventory, packaging, and shipping for them to drop-ship the product
directly to their customer's doorstep. This is very powerful in that it removes a lot
of the headaches and up-front investment capital required to start most businesses.
She loves the fact that you do not have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars in buying product from the company in order to resell it to your clients and that for only an incredibly low cost in comparison with other franchise and/or distributorship startup costs, that with only a small investment, you are instantly equipped with your own business and that you simply become the marketing vehicle to promote it.
She loves the fact that you can set your own hours in your business, work part-time or full-time,
work at home or from your office and that the choices are all yours, and the opportunities are virtually endless.
Her main focus now is helping others to get "Health, Wealth and Wellness" back in their life,
and to help them reach their new personal or professional goals to achieve major success.
She desires to make a difference in other peoples life. She is now building her own successful
team and developing her business according to her personal values and abilities Lifestyle, Freedom and Fun
