In announcing the appointments, Dr. Amy Kohn, CEO, said: “We are honored that these exceptional individuals have chosen to offer their guidance and leadership to MHA. Each has deep roots in the county and will provide unique perspectives and experience that will serve the agency in important ways.”
Larry Elkin is the President of Palisades Hudson Financial Group, LLC and Palisades Hudson Asset Management, L.P., which has its Westchester offices in Scarsdale. The firm provides financial and tax counseling. Its investment advisory business serves clients who reside in more than 30 states as well as abroad. A prolific writer, Mr. Elkin is an author as well as the editor and publisher of Sentinel, a quarterly newsletter and the lead author of the firm’s daily column, Current Commentary. About MHA, Mr. Elkin says: “I see my role as supporting the mission as well as the management of the agency. My goal is to help marshal and develop the organization’s resources so it grows its services and brings even more to those who so desperately need them.”
Sharon Krieger, MD, is a physician at the Mount Kisco Medical Group. She has practiced internal medicine for nineteen years. After receiving her Masters in Human Genetics at Louisiana State University in New Orleans, Dr. Krieger went on to complete her MD there as well. In her work as a physician, Dr. Krieger has found that patients increasingly look to her for help managing their mental health and that many physical complaints may mask an underlying psychological issue. In her new role on the MHA Board, Dr. Krieger hopes to open up conduits for other physicians and connect them to MHA so they may access quality mental health care as well as to bring a medical viewpoint to Board discussions.
