Haley graduated from the University of Queensland in 2002 and started her career in mixed practice in Grafton, NSW, before heading to the UK as a locum and to travel. After two years she came back home to family, friends, and a great job on the Sunshine Coast, where she has pretty much remained since. Life is busy with three small children, but she still finds time to enjoy her kelpie Cooper, Burmese cat Flo and the latest addition, a horse called Nancy.
