Established in 2009, Harris and Harris Wealth Management Group was birthed from a vision the president, Zaneilia Harris, had in college of owning her own financial advisory business. So with more than 20 years of experience, she started her boutique Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm, specializing in helping the "well-heeled" woman going through life transitions achieve financial health and well-being.

A certified financial planner, Harris was recognized in 2013 as Washington, D.C.'s People Choice for Wealth Management, the 2012 recipient of the Financial Planning Association's Diversity Scholarship Award. Most notably, her blog—Finance 'n Stilettos—was recognized by Investment News as one of the best blogs for women and investing. Her previous experience includes positions with Merrill Lynch, Edward Jones Investments, PricewaterhouseCoopers and The NASDAQ Stock Market.

Harris graduated cum laude from Saint Paul's College in Lawrenceville, Virginia. She holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration with a concentration in accounting.
