Haley came to Japan as a teacher in 2016 from the Washington, D.C. area (U.S.) and began volunteering with TELL in 2018.
Prior to her arrival in Japan, Haley worked with nonprofits fighting sexual and domestic violence. She worked directly with survivors, as well as leading presentations on interpersonal violence prevention to students in dozens of schools throughout her community.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the U.S. where she studied education and international and intercultural relations. She is currently pursuing her Master’s of Social Work.
When Haley is not volunteering, she enjoys traveling, discovering the best places to eat, event planning, and anything Harry Potter-related.
