Property and Casualty Insurance Expertise
Provided by The Perimeter Group
As a “captive” insurance agent for many years some of the major drawbacks I continually ran into, was having few options for my clients to consider for their insurance coverage. Many times I had one pricing option to offer and sometimes no option because my carrier did not provide the coverage a client needed. Over time I realized that to be a true “full service” insurance agency I had to change from a “captive’ one-size fits all agency to an independent one that offers a portfolio of carriers and coverage options.
In doing so, The Perimeter Group has expanded its expertise in the insurance field by having access to over twenty top-rated carriers in the personal and commercial insurance areas. It is through our association with many different carriers we learned how different the policies and coverage are among the insurance carriers. Thus, by understanding all the nuances of the different carriers and coverage options available we can truly recommend what is the BEST carrier and coverage for our clients. Now, when I or one of my staff evaluate the parameters of their insurance needs we can objectively assess a client’s situation and provide them with the best solution for their insurance needs that balances the premium cost along with the best coverage for the need at hand.
The Perimeter Group is one of the few Arizona insurance agencies that offers a true “one-stop” shopping experience for its clients along with unsurpassed service. We are all licensed, professionals so clients can feel assured they will be serviced by knowledgeable advisors trained in the Property and Casualty insurance industry. All our staff are required to complete Continuing Education with the state of Arizona and attend regular education seminars with all our carriers to remain current with insurance laws and coverage options.

Volvo of Phoenix – How Safe is a Volvo
SmartFem publisher Lea Haben presents Volvo of Phoenix on ABC15 Sonoran Living Live to talk about how safe and affordable a new Volvo is today.
Dr. Richard Joseph Brown “Dr. Rick” began his practice in the specialty of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery after an intense twelve years of training. He is double board certified in both General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia Dr. Rick now serves the Phoenix area and has practices in Scottsdale and Sun City West, Arizona.
After earning his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia, Dr. Rick moved to Chicago where he earned his medical degree from The Chicago Medical School. While there, he was president of the Student Surgical Society. He completed his General Surgery residency at Northwestern University in Chicago and spent one year dedicated to wound healing and scar research with Dr. Thomas Mustoe. That year, he wrote and published papers in one of the top Plastic Surgery journals, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He graduated and became certified by the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Rick finally completed his residency training in the field of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.
Dr. Rick was drawn to the field of Plastic Surgery because of the broadness of this specialty. He loves performing reconstructive work, as well as cosmetic procedures. He loves this challenging specialty because it requires innovative thought and is always changing. Dr. Rick feels it is a privilege to do what he does everyday.
Dr. Rick’s goal is to treat every patient as he would a member of his own family, with respect and compassion. He strives to be self-critical of his work, so that at the end of the day, he can say he did his best.
Our practices are located in Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as Sun City West. Dr. Rick specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, body and breast. He wants you to be able to communicate openly and feel comfortable during your visit and takes your safety and privacy very seriously. Ultimately, Dr. Rick’s success is judged by the satisfaction of his patients and he is committed to that goal.

The DeVita Corporate Brand Identity
The core of our company logo is stylized from the Bodhi leaf. Bodhi translates best to English as “enlightenment”. In Buddhism, the Bodhi leaf represents the knowledge possessed by Buddha into the nature of things – into the “dharma”. The Bodhi leaf also represents life. Folklore has it that the giving of life to the Bodhi tree by watering it is similar to the giving of life to a being who is in need of it.
So too does DeVita mean “of life” – it is the philosophy behind our exclusive natural skin care and cosmetic product lines. Both developed through the perfect combination of nature and science – the perfect combination “of life”.
The fundamental values of DeVita and the philosophy and science behind our products, symbolizes our identity as a company who is committed to delivering the best nature and science has to offer to our customers – without compromise. It also symbolizes our relationship in the marketplace and the strong reputation we have built in the community and industry abroad. It is our focus as a company to strive every day to achieve something beyond ourselves – something beyond our sense of what we are capable of accomplishing. Our goal: the gift of healthy skin. This is the identity of DeVita, and our gift of life!

What we do for you…Image Consulting
Color Analysis: Why do some colors lift your spirits and there are other colors you would never buy or wear? Color is very emotional! Your “WOW” colors make your eyes pop, compliments your skin tone and generally make you feel more confident. Color Profile includes; warm/cool analysis; personal color palette; hair, make-up and clothing color how-to’s.
Body Shapes & Personal Clothing Style: Getting to know your body shape: curvy, not so curvy; bigger on the top, smaller on the bottom; broad shoulders, narrow hips; average height; petite, etc…the list goes on and on. Clothes are made to a standard, but none of us are standardized! Learn how to identify your body type and to bring out your personal best with what you’ve got!
Accessorizing: Accessories can make or break an outfit. Be creative; add jewelry, a watch, scarves, a fabulous handbag, tote, briefcase, satchel, new eyewear or shoes to basic wardrobe pieces to bring outfits up to date.
Closet Edit & Renewal: Learn to shop in your own closet. Many separate pieces can be put together in new ways. Annette will give you permission to throw out clothing long past their expiration date. Clothing can be divided into categories: keepers, throw aways, consignment and donations to a women’s or men’s resource center for their “job interview closet”. Once we have identified the holes in your wardrobe you can look forward to our shopping expedition.
Wardrobe/Fashion Consultation: Most people seeking wardrobe consultants are in the process of transition; from one job to another, from married to single, re-entering the dating scene, from overweight to thin, from stay-at-home parent to corporate executive, from single to married, etc, etc, etc… Or they realize they have been dressing the same way for the past decade and nothing seems to fit or look correct anymore.
Your wardrobe should show your personality and lifestyle not the personality of the store’s well versed and well rehearsed salesperson.
“Every person has screaming mistakes in their wardrobe which we try to ignore by pushing them into the back where they fester in hopes of getting worn “someday…it’s never going to happen, free your guilt and get rid of them NOW!”
What you wear can and will change your life! Annette will assess your clothing, advise you on what to keep, what to throw out and what to renovate. She will give you a fashion plan to use and go forward with every time you get dressed.
Our company is based on the belief that our customers’ needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a very high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best image consulting service in the industry. Please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions.
Our motto: “The icing might look tasty, but will never be sweet unless the cake is made with the best ingredients, thus providing a solid foundation.”
