Haley has always had a passion for helping individuals improve their quality of life through a healthy and active lifestyle.

For as long as she can remember, Haley has participated in competitive sports, including: synchronized figure skating, soccer and hockey. This allowed her to realize the importance of physical activity very early on in life. Her love of sport and passion for helping others has driven her to make education and career choices that led her to the University of Waterloo.

Haley graduated from the University of Waterloo in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. She started working in the field right after graduation as the program director of Hardy Hearts, a cardiac rehabilitation program. Along the way she gained experience working with athletes recovering from injuries, as well as individuals recovering from neurological and spinal cord injuries in conjunction with physiotherapists through Aqua Therapy.

In January of 2016, Haley joined the UW Fitness team as an exercise specialist. She has since enjoyed learning from and working with many different populations through: UW WELL-FIT, Teens in Motion, and Staff and Faculty training. She looks forward to many years of helping individuals improve their physical and mental health through exercise.
