Hayley grew up just outside of Los Angeles, but she fell in love with Chico when she attended CSUC to study journalism in 2003.
After college, she went back to L.A. to work as a freelance music journalist.
Her sense of adventure also took her to Parkersburg, West Virginia, where she worked as reporter and weather anchor for WTAP News.

After years of being away Hayley is happy to be back in her home state and in the city she fell in love with as a college student.

When Hayley isn't working she enjoys spending time with her cat Sabbath or going for a run out in Bidwell Park. You can find Hayley on Facebook and Twitter.
