About Me

Hi, I'm Tamara Witham, and my grandparents were foreign-born and immigrated to the U.S.A. I am uniquely positioned to help you and your family through my personal experiences and the knowledge gained from working directly with families in the first-generation American or foreign-born communities. This community faces unique obstacles to establishing long-term financial security. We can help you get organized and provide solutions for your challenges in a non-judgemental and supportive manner.

Embrace Your Diverse Heritage: Whether you're a foreign-born American citizen, a permanent resident, or a foreign-born national here on a work visa, we understand the importance of embracing your heritage and educating you to succeed.

Optimize Your Financial Resources: Your dedication and hard work have paid off, allowing you to enjoy prosperity in the United States. At GreenLife Advisors, we help you maximize your available financial resources and secure a stable future for your family.

Supporting Family Abroad: Your connection to your family abroad runs deep, and you may be committed to supporting them. We recognize the significance of maintaining these relationships and provide solutions tailored to your specific needs.

My background: I am a CFP® professional practicing financial planning, which means I will be held to the duty of care of a fiduciary, as defined by the CFP Board. I have 24 years of experience in asset management and planning with Goldman Sachs & Co., PIMCO, GenSpring Family Offices, Bank of America, and 400 Capital Management.

I hold the credentials and have the education to help:

✅ Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP) professional

✅ Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) designation

✅ Masters of Business Administration, University of Chicago Booth School of Business, Finance

✅ Bachelor of Arts, University of Rochester

The additional details that sets us apart:
I understand working parents' time demands and needs, having been one myself for years. I make myself available to meet evenings and weekend hours, at times that are most convenient to you. I’m a mother of two teenagers and remarried. I’m also the proud owner of a very fluffy mini Goldendoodle.

About our Firm

GreenLife Advisors was created to help you reach your financial goals through a pragmatic planning and investing process. We are passionate about working with first-generation American and immigrant families and helping make a difference in their lives.

We are a member of NAPFA and of XY Planning Network, organizations dedicated to fee-only financial planning professionals. We choose to practice as fee-only advisors as we believe that best enables us to act as a true fiduciary for you rather than encounter the conflicts of interest inherent in commission-based compensation, as is the case with many other financial advisors focused on selling products.

As GreenLife Advisors is a fee-only financial planning and investment advisory firm, we will not sell any commissioned product.


We are ready to help you throughout every step of your financial journey. Whether it’s providing an upfront consultation, providing hourly services for a few burning questions, developing a full financial plan, or implementing a comprehensive approach to your finances and investments, GreenLife Advisors is ready to work with you. Our services will bring peace of mind and financial stability to your life.

✅ Comprehensive Wealth Management Services

When we holistically manage your financial life and allow you to focus more on your day-to-day life. Both comprehensive financial planning and investment management advice together for one low transparent fee. We offer hourly services as well as long-term engagements. There are unlimited virtual meetings, phone calls, and emails!
Ongoing planning fees start at $1000/ quarter.
Hourly planning fees are $250/hour.

✅ Investment Management Services

When you require just investment management services. Fee-based on assets under management.


We specialize in planning for families, many of whom are first-generation Americans, permanent residents, or immigrants to the U.S.A. Our client families represent the professional universe, including, but not limited to, consulting, banking, healthcare, real estate, and architecture. The common theme uniting them is that this community often faces unique obstacles to establishing long-term financial security. We can help you get organized and provide solutions for your challenges in a non-judgemental and supportive manner.

We value and respect each individual and family. Our clients vary by race, sex, gender identification, sexual orientation, national origin, native language, religion, age, disability, marital status, and citizenship.
