Hailey grew up in Goodwood, Ontario and is the third of five sister siblings. She attended Carleton University where she graduated with her Masters Degree in Architecture from the Azrieli School of Architecture. Following university, she spent time at DIALOG Architecture Firm in Toronto where she assembled a network of Architects that she continued to grow around as her professional life developed. In 2013, she transitioned into her own venture and started H. Bee Architecture.
Drawing on 10 years of building industry experience at Schell Lumber in Stouffville, ON has helped Hailey understand the building process and efficiently apply this experience in consideration into her designs. Learning this wide variety of design and building approaches from a number of industry working mentors and professionals over the years has given Hailey a strong foundation in design and functionality with an adaptive design style and sense that can be applied in any project type.
An amazing Mother of three children; Paige, Jet & Cedar, Hailey continues her quest at becoming an 'extreme' snowboarder, and better water skier than her Dad, Bob. Loves doughnuts, really loves nachos.
