Our Purpose...

Houston Focus on Concerns for Women, formerly Houston Financial Council for Women, was founded in 1974 to advance financial awareness in women and to encourage, support and organize educational activities that promote financial awareness in women. Through the decades our focus has broadened to include our interests in professional development, business ethics, personal and professional growth, global and financial awareness and to support activities that encourage professional, ethical, civic and fiscal responsibility for executive and entrepreneurial women.

Through this web site, our goal is to help you learn even more about our Meetings, Membership Information, Member Businesses, and the Organization in general.

Letís BE a 10 - Rebekah Bray, Body Sculptor

I am a CPA turned Certified Personal Trainer/Nutritionist. A Texas A&M University graduate with a masters in accounting. I like numbers, and when I discovered that numbers are one of the keys to succeeding in maintaining a healthy diet and lean physique as a lifestyle, I was elated.


Working at top accounting firms, I learned my first valuable lesson in fitness Ė I lacked balance. I invested more in the companies than I did in myself. My second lesson was when my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. This hit me hard. Fitness became more than looking good. Fitness and nutrition became mandatory. My doctors deemed me as high-risk due to my genetics. All my doctors cautioned me to stay away from fatty meats, alcohol, and smoking. They proclaimed that I could decrease my risks of cancer as well as other diseases by simply being cautious of the food I eat and engaging in regular exercise. I learned that our lives depend on the choices we make.


I believe that physical training is of some value and I can prevent or decrease negative outcomes through my choices. At this pivotal moment, I began to practice feeding my faith and starving my fears. I embraced the hallmark of excellence and the test of greatness through consistency, and I decided that nobody ever got ready by waiting. I realized that I could only transition to a healthy lifestyle by starting immediately.


I am the owner of BE a 10 Fitness. I focus on health and wellness education, training, and nutrition for women at all stages of life. www.BEa10Fitness.com
