She has received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of North Texas, and recently graduated with her Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the Mannes School of Music at The New School.

She also performed with the same music festival in 2019 in Varna, Bulgaria as Despina in Cosi fan tutte. She has sung in Los Angeles, California (Young Artist at SongFest at the Colburn School of Music) and Taos, New Mexico (Young Artist at the Taos Opera Institute). Haley has performed in choruses for many shows throughout her academic and professional career, including, but not limited to, Gianni Schicci, The Cunning Little Vixen, Street Scene, and Die Zauberflöte. 

In her voice teaching, Haley teaches a foundational technique with an emphasis on the awareness and understanding of the vocal mechanism and vocal pedagogy. Along with teaching, Haley also has experience with vocal coaching and theater/acting. 

Haley also has a passion for operatic repertoire and French art song. She teaches beginner and advanced musicians, and she fosters a resilient and growth-mindset based studio. By providing a cultivating space for her students to express themselves and learn, she only asks that they bring their own discipline and love for knowledge to her studio.
