Growing up a military brat, Haley moved 17 times in 23 years. While traveling overseas and throughout the U.S. has made her who she is, she has enjoyed settling in Washington D.C., calling it home since 2012. Haley graduated from Grove City College with a degree in Communications and was lucky enough to meet her husband, Andrew, there. Haley's experience includes working in the inner city of D.C. at a private school for low-income students, at International Justice Mission, the largest anti-slavery organization in the world. Currently at Faith and Law, Haley helps congressional staff better understand the implications of the Christian worldview for their calling to the public square. Outside of work, Haley loves to build relationships, travel, read, and explore all that D.C. has to offer!
Our favorite part of living in D.C. is the community we have formed. Bumping into friends, former interns or Hill staffers while walking around the Capitol has created intimate community in the midst of a big and intimidating city. The restaurants, museums, churches, and theater scene are an added bonus to living in D.C.!
We are passionate about seeing interns have a fantastic experience while living in Intern Housing, but also a phenomenal start to whatever they will be propelled into next. It is a joy to see interns create life-long friendships and work networks through life here in Intern Housing.

Our favorite part of living in DC is being able to experience all of the incredible history located just steps from our front door. We enjoy running, walking, or biking to visit historical landmarks and monuments across the city, and always find ourselves both inspired and humbled by how blessed we are to live in such a great country!
We love interacting with young conservatives who are excited to spend a semester in D.C.! Coming to the big city can be both inspiring and intimidating, and we look forward to providing guidance and cultivating an incredible experience to all of our residents.
