Hayley has worked for both New Vision Wilderness in Bend, Oregon and lead trails for Wingate Wilderness Therapy. She has also spent summers as a camp counselor, summer camp Program Director, naturalist, and even a falconer! Hayley loves Open Sky’s holistic approach to integrating the whole family and healing together. This idea of clinical therapy combined with nature resonated with her deeply.
As a guide, Hayley values the time she spends showing students the natural world. She is a huge "nature geek," and it gives her such joy to be a part of someone’s first time seeing the beauty of the mountains or finding a pottery shard from people who once walked this land as well. She brings creativity and a love of art into a team and fosters students’ creative expression whenever possible. She also loves to play and laugh and infuses a sense of humor into her work.
During her time off, Hayley loves to draw, paint, listen to poetry and music, and dance! A fun fact about Hayley...she used to work as a clown and Disney princess impersonator for kids’ parties.
