Shirley Wantland, Founder + Principal

Recovery Consultants

Shirley Wantland, Recovery Consultants

Founder of Recovery Consultants, a bespoke consulting company set out to disrupt the status quo of addiction treatment. Pushing up against standard, one size fits all treatment models—Recovery Consultants provides people individualized recovery, transformed and personalized for them. They know that no one path to recovery looks the same, so why do so many recovery programs?

Shirley has been described by friends as “a scientist and a truck driver, trapped inside the body of a princess.” As someone who doesn’t fit in any one box, she is skilled in coaching people through their perceived limitations that are blocking them from living the life they desire. She helps people chart their own path with unique and innovative treatment recommendations. She feels fortunate to call Mill Valley home, and is often seen hiking Blithedale Canyon as part of her practice of presence and shinrin-yoku (Japanese meaning forest bathing)—to prepare for the day’s adventures. She shares the splendors of Marin with her husband, two daughters, and dog Mochi.

NorCal Plastic Surgery

NorCal Plastic Surgery Staff

Dr. Timothy Rankin MD, FACS is a Board-Certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, post-partum rejuvenation (Mommy Makeover). NorCal Plastic Surgery was founded with the mission to improve the quality of life of its patients. Dr. Rankin trained at Vanderbilt University, one of the leading plastic surgery training programs in the country. He is an established author and has written extensively on safety in aesthetic surgery. While he is an expert in aesthetic surgery, not every patient requires surgery. It is this emphasis on a holistic approach to patient care that maximizes patient satisfaction.

NorCal 360© was created to help people manage the aging process to whatever degree that allows them to resolve the discord between how they feel (energetic, driven, outgoing), and how they look during a zoom call. Everyone has goals but many times, patients are frustrated with the lack of focus or direction and they are left feeling lost in aesthetic medicine. The NorCal team will create a realistic plan that draws upon the three pillars of the practice, surgical, non-surgical and wellness, to create lasting change.

Life is short. Achieve your goals.
