Erica Gifford Mills
First and foremost, Erica is a proud mother and spends every opportunity she has with her son. Her favorite title, after that of Mom, is Coach. Erica admires and respects each person’s decision to continue learning and growing personally and professionally as, she herself, is a lifelong learner. Erica’s passion is to empower and equip her clients in taking that next step towards confidence, self-esteem building, goal achievement and living life intentionally.
Starting out in the health and fitness arena as a group exercise instructor and personal fitness coach, Erica saw too often that clients were not looking at their whole self. They had blinders on and could not figure out why they were not achieving their goals. It was at that time she knew she had to go deeper. As a certified International Empowerment and Life Coach and owner of Balanced Symmetree, she inspires, motivates and assists her clients to look at all areas of their lives (mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually) to become balanced. By creating this balance, she believes we are all able to grow and achieve our deepest desires. Erica knows firsthand what it means to find her balance and go after her passion and purpose. Spending 20+ years in the legal/compliance arena with government offices and corporations, Erica took a leap of faith to go after what her heart and soul truly needed. She stopped doing what she was “supposed to do” and lives her purpose through helping others do the same.
In addition to being certified in holistic and integrative techniques, Erica holds a bachelor’s degree in Community Leadership & Development and Masters in Human Resources and Management. Educated and trained in Group Exercise Fitness Instruction, Personal Training, Personal Nutrition, Mindfulness and Transformation Meditation, Erica has the skills and knowledge to lead her clients to achieving balance in mind, body and spirit while living their passion and purpose.
As a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, club, rec and school volleyball coach, and Wellness Committee Chair at a local health insurance plan, Erica believes empowering young ladies and women, at all ages, areas and seasons of life, is incredibly important. Erica provides support to her clients and others through global group and individual coaching sessions, women’s retreats, workshops, speaking engagements, global and local volunteer efforts, as a published author, and now a Talk Radio Host.
