Haley recently graduated from Oklahoma City University with a BFA in Acting and a minor in Directing. In her time at OCU, she served as the Artistic Director of the student-run theatre company, Out of the Box, as well as collaborating on and directing many shows and projects of her own.

Haley is passionate about creating and developing work that goes beyond the typical performer/audience relationship to push the boundaries of the theatrical experience . In order to create art that effects change, we must first immerse the viewer in art that triggers an emotional response.
