management services to

particular expertise include
green, sustainable investing,

and tax-favored investment strategies. We also broker life, disability and
long-term care insurance policies. Securities and advisory services are

is the best way to make steady progress toward goals. At Green River,
we start by helping clients get organized and focused so that we
understand the current financial position and can identify challenges and
opportunities. After a strong foundation is established, frequently with
insurance products, an investment strategy is developed tailored to the
client’s lifetime goals.
Navigating today’s financial services environment can be a challenge
for even a sophisticated investor. By emphasizing communication and
transparency, we help our clients understand enough about financial
services and investing to feel a sense of security and control over their
own financial destiny. We focus on follow-up, and we build flexibility into
every financial plan — life is never completely predictable.
What have you been focusing on lately?
My recently published book on green investing demonstrates
unequivocally that green, sustainable mutual funds and ETFs enjoy
excellent performance. Green funds include an extra step: they include
and exclude stocks and bonds based on how the parent corporation treats
the environment, supports its employees and governs itself.
What are you most passionate about in your business?
Sustainable investors are using new academic data to demonstrate the
benefits of diversity for corporate decision making and entity success.

I seek to distinguish myself by offering leading-edge treatments
coupled with highly personalized care. We have offices in Walnut Creek
What are the challenges in your practice?
No two procedures are ever performed exactly the same. I treat each
patient as an individual, modifying my techniques to enhance natural
beauty. It’s imperative to use combination treatments that address multiple
signs of aging, as each region of the face presents unique challenges.
What makes your work worthwhile?
I have to say that I have a very fulfilling life helping my patients achieve
their aesthetic goals to look and feel their best.
What is your competitive edge?
My goal is simply to give all patients what they need to look their best
Is surgery always
and I consistently go the extra mile to provide patient-specific care. For
more than two decades I have developed a loyal following performing
face-lifts, tummy tucks,
Surgery may not always
be necessary. For some
patients who are not quite
ready for surgery, we can
achieve their goals using
lasers, fillers and other
noninvasive protocols. As
an international speaker
and trainer for the Sciton
Laser, I can offer the most
advanced nonsurgical antiaging treatments, including the “Forever
Young” Broad Band Light treatment, and Skin Tyte to tighten skin that
has lost its elasticity.
