    WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT ME.

    “Hayley and I worked together on the same project at WOW App. When it comes to communicating with clients or colleagues, she’s great at providing clear direction and an understanding of their priorities. I would definitely like to collaborate with Hayley again in the future, and I believe that she would be a great asset to any company.”

    “Hayley is passionate, on the ball, and an all around great person to be around and work with. Since getting to know her in the startup space, there are few we know that are as well connected on the grassroots level. Hayley has a penchant for running events with a good dose of fun. At Origami we last worked with her on a series of product launches that were a resounding success.”

Her blog is one of my most important reference point when I need to do a research.
