Hayley graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Biology and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Sydney. Following graduation, Hayley moved to New Zealand where she worked as a vet and completed an internship in Equine Clinical Studies at Massey University.

While the grass may be greener in New Zealand, Hayley is excited to have returned to Canberra where she grew up, joining the team at Canberra Equine in February.

Hayley has a cat, Misty, who she adopted during university. In her spare time Hayley enjoys outdoor activities such as skiing, horse riding, and social team sports.
