Hayley was born and raised in Deep River with a dog, a cat and a horse. She wanted to be a veterinarian as a child, and for a time that changed to archaeologist, but the pull toward veterinary medicine was strong and she ultimately became a veterinary technician at Animal Hospital of Old Saybrook, where we taught her everything she knows about veterinary medicine!
Hayley’s favorite thing about working in the veterinary industry is helping and educating pet owners in their time of need, and helping animals to feel better and be healthy. When asked if she’s more of a dog or cat person, Hayley’s answer was that she is an all animals person — but she does share her home with two dogs and a cat, as well as her parents and an older sister. When she isn’t working, Hayley enjoys hiking or walking with the dog, relaxing outside at home, photography, helping her mom with her candle business, reading and learning new things, home improvement, and going to breweries with her family.
