Interests and Passions

Hayley loves to spend time outside whether it's around a bonfire, on a walk, or relaxing in an Adirondack chair on a patio. She is a proponent of the “Friday-night-in” club, enjoying a good glass of wine and a card game to kick off the weekend.

When she's not chasing her dogs around or engulfed in a home project, you can find her reading a library book or making floral arrangements for her dining room table.

Originally from Wisconsin, she loves spending time on the lake, dining at supper clubs, and enjoying her family’s side-splitting Midwest humor.
