Classroom

Haley is working towards her degree in science, technology, and society with a 3.76 GPA. During her academic career, she has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District first team, United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-America first team, and CoSIDA Academic All-America third team.

Haley was one of 24 undergraduate students at Stanford chosen to join the Hoover Institution’s Mentorship Program with the National Security Affairs Fellowship. There, she was paired with one of eight distinguished diplomats or military leaders serving as a fellow at the Hoover Institution.

She has also earned 2019 PAC-12 Fall Academic Honor Roll and 2018 Pac-12 All-Academic honorable mention recognition.

She will pursue entrance into Stanford’s sustainability science and practice graduate program for the spring season. Once her playing career is over, Haley hopes to continue working with organizations that are passionate about solving sustainability challenges.

Character

Even with postponements and uncertainty surrounding the last two seasons, Haley has remained devoted to compete for Stanford. Despite being drafted seventh overall in the 2021 NWSL Draft, she chose to delay her professional career and play for Stanford during the spring.

During Stanford’s 2019 national title run, Haley played on a sprained MCL and torn meniscus for the final month of the season. Last February, she underwent knee surgery and spent a large portion of the year rehabbing at home. She was away from Stanford during the early months of COVID-19.

Community

Since arriving at Stanford, Haley has been active in the community. She has spent time East Palo Alto’s Big Homie program, providing mentorship to youth in communities of color to bridge the network and opportunity gap.

In congruence with her sustainability classwork, Haley has spent considerable time volunteering with the Farmlink Project. She has volunteered at their research power hours to collect contacts of farmers, food distribution groups, co-ops, government agencies, and other places that might connect them with surplus or unmarketable produce to fight food insecurity.

Competition

Haley has been part of the most successful in school history. Leading Stanford to two national championships and three-straight PAC-12 titles, Haley has earned accolades for her work on the field.

In 2019, she was named to the All-America second team, while also being selected to the College Cup All-Tournament team.

Having earned all-conference honors as both a sophomore and junior, Haley enters her senior season with 59 career points (18 goals, 23 assists), and five game-winning goals in her career.

She was named to the 2020-21 MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List.
