Get to know Doro and Tricia and TODAY’s BB&R!

Doro and Patricia founded the wellness company BB&R, Bright, Bold and Real, over a decade and a half ago, with a very clear goal: to share and potentiate the pioneers of mindfulness and holistic thinking. 

Meet Doro

Meet Doro

Imagine being the only woman in history to have both a father and a brother as president of the United States of America.  Imagine having to balance a very public life with your own private life which included raising four children, working on several presidential campaigns (in your immediate family!), non-profit organizations and running a business. Doro handled it all with grace and with resilience.  How did she do it?  She turned to mindfulness.   

Staying present and grounded has made such an impact on Doro’s life that she has spent the last two decades focused on sharing this powerful message with the world. Her kindness gives her a special ability to connect individuals.  She has used this gift as a New York Times best selling author, connecting her readers to her father’s life in “My Father, My President: A Personal Account of the Life of George H.W. Bush.”



Meet Tricia

Tricia was introduced to the world of holistic health and meditation through her maternal grandmother who was a visitor to ashrams in the 1950s.  For as long as she can remember Tricia has been fascinated by the understanding that the mind and body are interconnected.  She is a student of TCM and ayurvedic living, is certified in Plant Based Nutrition, a holistic health coach, obsessed with the power of love, and studied the healing powers of energy through reiki and yoga.  She is an innovator and advocate working to help businesses rethink health and wellness in the 21st century.

TODAY’s BB&R…what our team is up to!


BB&R created the  Achieving Optimal Health Conference, which is an annual conference that helps people discover mind body techniques to improve their physical and spiritual health.  Georgetown University’s GU Wellness partnered with  BB&R nine years ago to create what has become the premier health conference of its kind in the country.  With the support of so many in the community the Achieving Optimal Health Conference has grown exponentially from being a conference to a movement!

  • BB&R has produced meditation seminars, blog posts and CD’s. Doro speaks around the country on how mindfulness and breathing can positively impact our lives.

  • The popular BB&R REBOOT Nutrition program was created to help all of us realize that it is in our power to create a life we love.  Countless people have benefited from this program. If you are ready for a REBOOT and want to reach your optimal state of balance and brilliance, jump in.

  • The team at BB&R are very busy working on creating labs powered by “citizen scientists.” Our first lab was opened in late 2018 and we are eager to report the findings of how each of us can share our health “successes” with each other. It will be one of the first ever citizen scientist platforms focused on health and wellness.  

The duo also are the cofounders of the podcast HEALTHGIG, a podcast that asks leaders and celebrities to share their personal journey to health and wellness. Catch your weekly inspiration on Spotify or iTunes.
