I earned my M.F.A. in Acting from the University of California, Irvine and
am approaching Designation in The Linklater Voice Method.
I teach and direct for universities and conservatory-style training programs
all over NYC, while additionally offering private coaching for performers and
professionals both in person and over Zoom.
Having transitioned from the intense world of classical ballet into acting,
improvisation, and voice, my teaching centers around the compassionate
investigation of presence, connection, and courage.
I feel successful as a teacher when my students leave class feeling more
inspired, playful, free, and eager to express themselves.

"Working with Hayley reminds me of the importance of being able to communicate freely, as an actor and as a human being. Working together, we've begun to free my voice and re-awaken my ability to communicate unimpeded.
It's a big relief releasing all of that tension!"
- Grant Haralson, Performing Artist
"Hayley's class was one of the most self- discovering, freeing moments I've ever had as
an artist and human being."
- Jenna Ashlyn, Theatre Artist
"Anyone who enjoys a coaching session with Hayley has been given a gift! As an actor, coaching sessions can sometimes feel like you’re looking for someone to give you choices to make in your piece. With Hayley, it is nothing short of a collaboration. Hayley listens to your instincts as an actor, and works with you to bring out the beautiful details in your vision. I have coached scenes, monologues, songs, and more with Hayley, and every time I walk away feeling confident with my work. Hayley has a wonderful tenderness and openness as a coach that encourages you to trust your gut and play! I’m telling you — book with her YESTERDAY!!"
- Kate Cassidy Ryan, Actor
"Hayley is a wealth of knowledge! They take into account your theatrical niches and ask you about your challenges. You feel comfortable and seen with Hayley. I look forward to taking in some of these new pieces into auditions and self tapes!"
- Christie Farrell, Actor
