Erica Reid is married to music mogul and visionary Antonio “L.A.” Reid, and is the head of a health conscious lifestyle brand and conscious living movement geared at simple everyday ways to improve and nurture your life for yourself and your loved ones. She is mother to Arianna and Addison, and her commitment to health and dedication to mothering led her to write her first book The Thriving Child—a much needed nourishment guide for parents and those with day to day involvement with children. Her versatility and global brand speaks to women of all backgrounds who are inspired towards a sustainable and vibrant life. Erica’s roots go back to Colorado, where she was one of three daughters raised by a single mom. She worked three jobs to put herself through college and fed her gypsy spirit by learning how to survive on her own in Atlanta, Paris, California, and Greece before finally settling in New York where she lives with her husband and two children.
