Living in and around Omaha practically her whole life, Hailey decided to pack up and move to Hastings to start her career in broadcast journalism at Local4 in June of 2021.
Ever since she can remember, Hailey has had a passion for writing and helping out others. These passions sent her down the path of journalism. In the summer of 2019 she held a news internship for KMTV 3 News Now in Omaha, where her interest in broadcast journalism took off.
Hailey is a proud former Northwest Missouri State Bearcat, where she graduated with a bachelor’s in mass media: multimedia journalism in May of 2021. While there, she worked as a photographer and a reporter for the school newspaper and yearbook.
When time allows, Hailey enjoys spending time with friends and family, whipping up a tasty meal, painting/drawing and relaxing nearby or on a large body of water.
