Staff Spotlight

Haley Dunlap
Well-Being Coach

Please give a warm welcome to Haley.
We are so glad to have her on our team!

Who inspires you professionally or personally?  And why?
I have 2 wonderful role models that I have looked up to my whole life… My mom and my big sister. They have always inspired me to be a strong, independent woman like them and I strive every day to be half the woman they are.

What are some of your hobbies?
I enjoy a good majority of my hobbies with my husband/best friend of almost 6 years. We like fishing/hunting, kayaking, watching the St. Louis Cardinals, going to the local farmer’s market, and traveling to explore new places. I also love chatting with my bestie from Alabama… We are extremely close and talk almost daily!

What is your most treasured accomplishment?
Building my own little side business of HD Choreography. I create gymnastics floor and beam routines as well as run gymnastics dance clinics for coaches and gyms. It has grown each year and is something I am very passionate about!

What do you do to treat yourself?
I usually have a little bowl of ice cream, light a candle, and play Shania Twain Radio.

What is one thing you cannot do without?
Sweet Tea!
