Hailing from Short Hills, New Jersey and graduating with a Bachelors in Communications and French from Rutgers as well as a Certificate in Digital Design from Parsons, Hayley’s interest has always been in the luxury goods industry. This has led her to work in prestigious companies including Burberry, Chanel, Coach, and L’Oréal. For the past three years, she has been the Marketing Coordinator for Elizabeth Arden, working on fragrance lines for high profile names such as Britney Spears, Elizabeth Taylor, and Lucky Brand Jeans.
She joins Met Council through her interest in volunteerism and the Jewish community. “I wanted to find an organization which would enable me to combine my Jewish background with the satisfaction of knowing that I was truly able to help someone,” Hayley explains. “I researched several outlets, but none has been more fitting than Met Council.”
Her professional background has been absolutely invaluable in helping Met Council clients receive the job readiness soft skills they need to get the jobs they desire. She also credits volunteering as great source of self-development. “For me, volunteering not only provides assistance to people in need, but also a sense of self-worth. Volunteering has become a source of reflection. I never truly understood or appreciated my success until I had the opportunity to give back. Volunteering educates and provides us with a more well-rounded background, allowing one to mature and act in a sophisticated manner.”
