While Haley started her career in public accounting, she’s always had a passion for startups. She co-founded a networking app, Forget-Me-Not, while working full-time at Ernst & Young (EY) in her hometown of Austin, Texas. As a Senior Assurance Associate at EY, Haley led the financial statement audits of key public technology companies, primarily in the semiconductor industry. Knowing that climbing the corporate ladder at EY wasn’t her goal, she decided to go back to school to further pursue entrepreneurship at Harvard Business School. While there, Haley was selected for Harvard Innovation Lab’s Venture Incubation Program, the inaugural cohort of HBS Startup Bootcamp, and co-founded the Whisky, Bourbon, Spirits Society.
Haley holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a MPA and BBA in Accounting from The University of Texas at Austin.
