Hayley is originally from northern New Jersey. She was introduced to the field of medical illustration in high school by her guidance counselor. Appreciating that she could pursue both of her interests, Hayley attended the College of Charleston for her undergraduate studies. She graduated in 2022 with a B.A. in Biology, B.A. in Studio Art and a minor in Jewish Studies.
While attending UIC BVIS, Hayley is looking forward to exploring all of the opportunities and paths within the field, especially illustration and animation. She is excited to learn and grow as a visual communicator and hopes to make an impact within the field upon graduation. She is interested in creating visuals for educational purposes and communicating scientific concepts to benefit undergraduate, professional, and patient populations.
