Haley joined WEV as the Program Coordinator for Santa Barbara County in summer 2019. Her interest in mission-driven work began during her time at UC Merced, where she earned a BA in Public Health. There, Haley responded to the gendered disparities confronting women by founding an annual menstrual product drive on campus, successfully involving the local community in these efforts. Haley continued combining social justice and program coordination during her time as Program Coordinator at UC Merced’s Outdoor Experience Program, where she developed trips and educational opportunities at an affordable price for the local community. Haley strongly believes in the powerful and positive impact which entrepreneurial woman have on local communities and looks forward to contributing to these efforts in her role as Program Coordinator at WEV. Originally from San Mateo, California, Haley now enjoys living in Santa Barbara and when she is not in the office, she is most likely exploring new hiking trails or playing fetch at the beach with her dog, Curry.
