Hayley grew up blocks away from the ocean in Virginia and claims that saltwater runs through her veins. She studied Foreign Affairs and Spanish at the University of Virginia and currently works as a consultant. Hayley lives in southern California with her husband where they enjoy exploring every beach they can find, playing music together, trying to learn how to cook, and going to Disneyland.
Hayley has a passion for traveling and exploring the world around her. She lived in Spain, worked with a non-profit in Nicaragua, and now tries to plan as many trips as possible while working full-time. She adores music, the power of lyrics, and words in general; she loves exploring her creativity through writing songs, stories and blog posts. She also loves photography, reading, her faith, anything to do with travel, organizing, planning, and trying to find joy in every situation. Hayley’s absolute favorite thing to do is to spend time with her husband, her family, and her friends. She is a firm believer that it’s not where you are that counts- it’s who you’re with.
