Hayley was born and raised in Kilgore.  She has been working in the Veterinary field for about 9 years.  She started volunteering at her first Vet clinic at the age of 14, while doing a veterinarian assistant program through Texas A&M.  From the moment she started, she felt a very strong passion for taking care of animals and she was ready to do everything and anything she could to do just that.  She plans on continuing her education more every day, so that when you bring your fur babies in, she is ready to assist and make sure they get the care, love and treats they deserve.  She enjoys spending time with her family, singing, photography, reading, arts & crafts and of course taking care of her fur babies at home.
