After living in the Midwest and graduating from Indiana University- Bloomington studying Arts Administration, Hayley spent the summer of 2017 living in Vermont on her uncle’s farm. It didn’t take long for her to fall in love, and she knew one day she’d be back. Fast-forward to November 2019 and she made the decision to call the Green Mountain State home. Within the week, as luck would have it, she found her home at Spruce Peak Arts and has been with the team ever since. She’s grateful to be a part of this incredible, resilient team and have been lucky enough to assist in a little bit of everything with her new focus being marketing. She looks forward to furthering our mission and fostering our impact with the wonderful town of Stowe. When not at work, Hayley enjoys long walks over mountains, skiing, running, and lake days. If she’s in nature, she’s (usually) happy.
