HSAC Interns

Summer 2017




Haley received her Bachelor of Science in Political Science, and Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies from Arizona State University. She is currently a Master of Public Policy student at the University of Southern California (USC), entering her second year this coming fall. Haley is also working on a Certificate of Sustainable Policy and Planning during her time at USC.


Haley is originally from Chicago, IL, but grew up primarily in Phoenix, AZ. In the past, she has been an intern in Washington, D.C. for a local Congresswoman and spent six months living in Dublin, Ireland as an exchange student studying Irish law and politics. Her interests in homeland security and public safety emerged from growing technology and progress within the field, in combination with the ability it has to make significant, visible impacts on communities. 

Career Goals

As a current policy student, Haley hopes to be making a difference within the policy field within the next 10 years. Her interests lie in homeland security and sustainability, and she hopes to be working on solutions and progress within these areas throughout her career. 


Haley loves traveling, reading, and spending time at LA's best beaches and restaurants. Her next travel goal is Thailand, hopefully with many other places to follow! She is always looking for a good book suggestion or new place to try in LA.
