The Herald received more than 50 nominations this year for the Emerging Leaders Award for 2024. Among those nominated were a husband and wife team, Dr. Baljinder S. Gill and his wife, Lavleen Samra-Gill. Together they operate Symmetria Integrative Medical.

“As they were interviewed, it was clear that while they are both tremendous leaders and the business they co-created is award worthy in our community” interviewers said.

As a result, The Herald created an Emerging Business Award for the first time and presented it to Symmetria Integrative Medical.

Symmetria’s three clinics are located in Arlington, Marysville and Lake Stevens. The company, which employs 48 people, offers chiropractic and rehabilitation care, along with pain management and weight loss.

Gill grew up in Marysville and graduated from Marysville-Pilchuck High School in 2006. He received a scholarship from the Marysville Kiwanis Club. After completing his chiropractic degree in 2013 from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, California, he returned to Marysville.

“My commitment to the medical profession and my patients drive me to continually advance my knowledge and treatment options,” Gill said.

Samra-Gill is the company’s CEO and executive director. She has a doctorate in public health from the Indiana University Bloomington and a master’s degree in mental health counseling form Indiana Wesleyan University. She is president of Symmetria Integrative Medical.

Gill serves on the board at the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce. The couple are members of the Marysville Rotary Club.

Dr. Gill was named Business Person of the Year in 2022. A year later, The Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce named Symmetria the Business of the Year in 2023.

“From supporting charities and shelters to being recognized by the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce, these efforts are a testament to my values of honesty, integrity and ethical conduct, guiding my actions and decisions both professionally and personally,” Dr. Gill said.

Samra-Gill emigrated from India to the United States when she was 5 years old.

“My narrative, from an immigrant to a leader in healthcare, embodies a journey of overcoming adversity, embracing diversity and leading with heart,” Samra-Gill said.

“Through partnerships with organizations like The Tulalip Tribes and an initiative to combat the opioid crisis, I have strived to address the pressing health needs of our community,” she said.

Samra-Gill said the company makes a point to hire and empower women and girls. “That could mean they’re with us for a long time or they’re with us for just a season in their life,” she said. Whatever is it, “we’re going to make sure that they’re developing a really great skill set that they’re able to translate to their life and professional career.”
