Hailey went to Guelph University and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree. Though she enjoyed reading and writing in her courses she felt like something was missing.
In second year Hailey adopted a beautiful Collie mix and named him Jackson Triggs. Jackson Triggs helped her get through some difficult times in life and school, which inspired her to want to do more. The kindness, compassion, dedication and resilience that this amazing creature showed Hailey made it a goal in her life to reciprocate that to other animals. The need to help show these innocent beings their best life has become a goal.
Hailey enjoys long walks on the beach, sports and food.
Hailey finds herself to be a very passionate and committed person in every aspect of her life, so rest assured folks your animals are in good hands!
