Let the laughter roll!  Hayley, with her infectious laugh, brings forth an abundance of smiles and cheer.  Our Idaho homegrown girl just loves Boise! After graduating from Bishop Kelly, Hayley completed her Bachelors degree in Health Science from Boise State University, followed by a degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant from Brown Mackie College and Advanced Training in CranioSacral Therapy (CST) through the Upledger Institute. In fact, Hayley is the only Pediatric, Techniques-Certified, CranioSacral Practitioner in the Treasure Valley. 

Back in the day, Hayley and I taught an adaptive gymnastics class together (okay Hayley taught while I played). Her love and passion for supporting the children in our class was remarkable! When not playing for a living, Hayley enjoys spending silly time with her children.  She also enjoys yoga, pottery, snowboarding and looking up every theoretical OT principle I happen to mention.  Hayley’s playful drive to be the best at what she does is a true reflection of the saying: “Life is often dangerous, but never serious.” Go get’em girl!
