Haley grew up on the Western Slope of Colorado surrounded by pet dogs, cats, rabbits, rats, and fish. After graduating with a BA in biology from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Haley began a long-lasting career in wildlife conservation. She was involved in education, outreach, animal husbandry, translation, and fieldwork for zoological organizations, national parks, and state governments. Haley has also served as a dedicated volunteer for her local humane society, fostering animals in need and providing enrichment for shelter pets. Haley now works as an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter. Her own experience with senior pets, and her belief that families and pets should be kept together whenever possible drew her to continue pursuing her passion for animals with Gray Muzzle Society. In her free time, Haley loves to hike and explore the beautiful mountains Colorado has to offer, go camping, boating, and simply hanging out with her family and snuggling with her pups.
