Haley graduated in December 2017 as a double Pre-Veterinary and French major. She is currently a student at the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Illinois. She is one of only two students in the United States of America who were accepted into the Boehringer Ingelheim Veterinary Scholars Program.
The program sent Haley to France to conduct veterinary research over the summer. Now, she has the opportunity to participate again, applying to a similar program in Greece for 2020. The French vet program's criteria required sufficient language proficiency to be able to conduct research in France, a qualification Haley well-surpassed. While at SVSU, Haley went beyond what was required of her in the classroom to develop her language skills while also completing a challenging pre-professional program of study. She is eager to embrace her next big step in life while adding to her language toolkit along the way.
