Weiss, Hale & Zahansky Strategic Wealth Advisors (WHZ) has welcomed Daria Zalewska to the firm as a senior associate, paraplanner. In that role, she assists the firm’s financial advisors in the development, oversight, and management of strategic financial planning for the firm’s high-net-worth clients.

WHZ Principal, Managing Partner and Chief Goal Strategist James Zahansky, AWMA® says that Zalewska has already proved to be a valuable addition to the team.
“In the short time she’s been part of our team Daria has already made a wonderful impact.
