Meet Your Hosts
Doro Bush Koch
Imagine being the only woman in history to have both a father and brother as president. Imagine balancing a very public life with your own private life of raising four children. Doro handles it with grace and resilience. How does she do it? She turns to mindfulness. Staying present and grounded has made such an impact on Doro’s life that she teaches mindfulness workshops and has even produced her own meditation CD, “Take This Moment to Breathe.” She lives by the idea that it is important not only to “work out,” but to “work in.”
Doro’s grandmother and namesake, Dorothy Walker Bush, was one of the greatest influences in Doro’s life. She raised five children, was a phenomenal athlete, and even dabbled in music. However, what Doro remembers most was the compassionate way her grandmother treated others.
Not surprisingly, Doro shares this genuine compassion. 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.” As co-chair of the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation, she connects those suffering from a lack of education to those willing to help. Now, as a founding partner of “BB&R Wellness Consulting” she is utilizing her gift to connect those who want to improve their lives with the resources to make it happen.
Patricia Reilly Koch
Patricia Reilly Koch lives her life to the fullest. She emphasizes excitement over routine and incorporates curiosity and acceptance. She is a firm believer that the mind and body are interconnected.
What do we mean by this? From an early age, Tricia was introduced to the world of meditation through her maternal grandmother, who was a regular visitor to ashrams in the 1950s. Since then, she has been fascinated with the world of healthy living.
As a holistic health coach, Tricia is well versed in what type of nutrition is “good” for the body. She is a student of ayurvedic living, is certified in Plant-Based Nutrition, and studied the healing powers of energy through reiki and yoga. In the past 25 years, she has immersed herself into the study of what it means to nourish your mind and body. She attended yoga retreats, raw food seminars, juice cleanses, and hiking excursions to come to more fully understand the connection between the mind and the body.
As a mother of four children, Tricia recognizes the significance of passing on knowledge to others, particularly to those you love. It is this mindset that inspired her and her partners to create BB&R Wellness Consulting. With her dual background in education and business, she brings a valuable perspective to the BB&R team and is committed to providing others with the tools to achieve their optimal health.
