In 2018, Hayley graduated from Louisiana State University with a Master of Architecture degree. Over the course of her education at LSU, she served as a research assistant for the trans-disciplinary Coastal Sustainability Studio, aiding in the outreach effort through marketing and social media, as well as contributing to the multi-million dollar grant research efforts associated with coastal and riverine flooding. She also performed research with 3D modelling and milling, creating prototypes of unique vaults produced from mathematically derived Penrose tilings. She received schoolwide design awards each year of her architectural education, as well as the Henry Adams Medal and Certificate at graduation.
Originally from Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas, Hayley also holds Bachelor degrees from the University of Central Arkansas in Art as well as Mathematics. Her artistic and analytical backgrounds will help her contribute to the variety of needs in the architectural studio.
