Hailey first traveled internationally with DAT during the summer of 2014 for ACTion: Ecuador. After spending a week teaching high school students in the beautiful Afro-Ecuadorian beach town Esmeraldas and performing and writing a collective musical inspired by her adventures in the South American country, she knew that her journey with DAT had only begun. 

In 2015, Hailey graduated with a BA in Theater from Occidental College and was awarded the Edgerton Fellowship to serve as the Executive Office and Program Development Intern for DAT. With her past internships and positions in nonprofit theater, including the financial development intern at A Noise Within in Pasadena, CA; an arts education program intern at Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles, CA; and teaching artistry with Occidental Children’s Theater in Eagle Rock, CA, Hailey is thrilled to share her skills and continue to learn with the DAT team this year. 

Hailey, a Los Angeles native, is also looking forward to furthering her stage acting career as she moves across country to New York City in October 2015. If you have any tips on how to keep this Cali girl warm in the winter, feel free to email her with recommendations.
