About Hayley Helsten

hatyley profile

Hayley grew up painfully shy but full of wonder. Her adorable parents and seven crazy siblings brought her love and laughter, but she rarely spoke outside her home until she was a teenager. She did, however, find plenty of opportunities to express herself, dancing everywhere she went and drawing on every surface she could find. She fought every day to be happier, healthier, and weirder.

Hayley has grown (slightly) taller an wiser since those days, but she still believe life’s greatest joys are dancing in public, laughing until you cry, and eating chocolate chip cookies for dinner.

She now enjoys a semi-nomadic life with her sweet, sweet husband and two precious kids, Calie and Luna. She hopes her kids will be just as strange and twice as happy as she is.
