Don Hanley

Intern - Houston Office

Don Hanley was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey but was raised in Hingham, Massachusetts, and University Park, Texas. His father has spent his entire career in the asset management business with multiple companies and as a result, the family moved around quite a bit.

While in high school, he spent several weeks in India visiting New Delhi and several islands in the Indian Ocean. He also hiked and camped in the Himalayas for a week. He made a second visit to India with a group of fishing YouTubers who traveled, fished, and filmed for two weeks.


Don joined the Global Wealth Advisors Houston office in 2023 as an intern. He is currently a senior at the University of South Florida in Tampa, majoring in Personal Financial Planning, which is part of the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ program. After graduation, he plans to take the CFP exam and will move into a client service role with GWA.


His many hobbies include serving as a member of an investment club, fishing, golf, fitness, and spending time with his mini-Labradoodle.
