Meet Hailey! She grew up in the small town of South County with her older brother, dad, and, mom. Shortly after moving to the house that would be a new beginning for her little family, a tragedy happened in her home. When she was three years old, her father died from a heart attack. For Hailey going to school and graduating from Southern High School was great because of the small populated area. As she grew older, she started to wonder and have thoughts about her father’s passing so she started researching his cause of death. She became interested in a program at the Center of Applied Technology South, a vocational and hands-on school, were she enrolled in the Academy of Health Professions. Hailey learned about the human body through physiology, anatomy, and pathology. She became more interested in not only helping people with her father’s same situation, but helping others as well. The joy of helping others pushed her drive and passion to become a nurse.
