Greetings and Welcome to GHBB!

I am a professional educator with over ten years experience. I love teaching, learning, writing, and helping others. Throughout my life, I’ve always been attracted to the world of fitness.  I ran track and played basketball in grade school.  While in college, I participated in a running club, intramural volleyball, kickboxing, and gymnastics.  Now, I enjoy cardio/aerobic classes, CrossFIT, and running outdoors.

Initially, I created this blog as a public diary to share my own journey towards optimal health and fitness.  My previous ideas of “being healthy” did not deter my need to have fibroid tumors surgically removed during the Summer of 2015. Too many of us including myself are struggling with everyday stress, disease, weight control, and poor nutrition.  These are things we can control and overcome with the right tools and information.  That is the reason why I am pursuing certification in health and nutrition to study how eating clean and exercising can boost the immune system, and prevent many ailments.  The more I learn about proper nutrition and fitness, the more I wish to inspire others to Get Healthy & Be Beautiful!!!


In my spare time, I enjoy the company of my family and friends, reading, researching, watching Netflix, traveling, and attending concerts.  I have an 84 year old chihuahua (in dog years of course). I also possess a Masters in Education from Lamar University and a Bachelors of Science in Engineering from Texas A&M University – GIG ‘EM AGS!!!


Be sure to stay connected by subscribing to GHBB and participating in discussions.  There will be a variety of postings and I’d love to read your comments.
