What brought Haley to Music Therapy?
“Music has been the most prominent aspect of my life. From a young age, I was constantly singing and looking for instruments to play. Throughout grade school and college, I participated in multiple choirs, musicals and orchestras. While I love performing, I know that I was given the gift of music to help others. Having a sister with cerebral palsy, it felt natural for me to become a companion and caretaker for other children and adults with disabilities. I found that with my sister, music was the key to help my family and I communicate with her. It became an integral part of our family. Once my sister started her own music therapy sessions, I immediately knew that was my path. When it came time to look for colleges, I knew I needed to combine my passions – and here I am!”
