Hailey is a recent graduate from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Hailey enjoyed the outdoors and playing all sports growing up including competitive volleyball, recreational soccer and basketball. Hailey’s athletic experience, and working in the healthcare field as a Medical Office Assistant for Vancouver Island Health Authority, allowed her to recognize her passion for working with people in a physical capacity. After some sporting injuries, Hailey learned the importance in rehab and preventative care first hand. This experience had her taking serious initiative into recovering her body and injuries through therapeutic treatment and relaxation. She is a strong believer that having a well rounded and supportive group of health care professionals/therapists is essential. This ultimately led her to her passion of Massage Therapy. Hailey also has experience in orthopedic injuries, prenatal care, central nervous system and systemic health conditions.
