Hey everybody, I’m Hailey. I’m a Mainer born and raised, fairly local to UMaine (Hermon). I am an alumni of the University of Maine, previously graduating with my Master’s degree in Social Work. I was involved in athletics as well, where I played for the University of Maine Softball team. Presently, I live with my husband and french bulldog and we are located in the middle of cornfields and potatoes in central Maine. I enjoy time with family and friends. I also love lifting, spending time at camp, snowmobiling/skiing, swimming and hiking.

What has been your most embarrassing moment (that you are willing to share)?
I really enjoy dancing. While on my honeymoon I was on the dance floor 95% of our trip. During that trip I decided to whip out the worm (my signature move), and after that the DJ and rest of the crowd began referring to me as the “worm girl.” Out of context I think I would have been offended.

What is your favorite food?

My favorite food is SUSHI! Any and all sushi, give me crab, tuna, salmon, eel, yellowtail and it will be devoured.

Favorite quotes

“The happiest people lose themselves in the service of others” – Gordon B Hinckley

If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I want to get over to Ireland. I enjoy Irish music, and watching folk dancing.
