Hailey Malepeai, MA
Hailey joined Expedition Inspiration in September of 2015. She comes to the organization with a tapestry of experience ranging from hospitality management to wedding and corporate event planning, as well as nonprofit administration and grant writing.
Originally from Twin Falls, Idaho, Hailey bounced to Colorado to Ketchum to Utah and finally back to Idaho in 2009 to pursue a master's degree at Idaho State University. It was there that she began a passionate career in nonprofit management working for Health West, Inc, a community health center. Since then, Hailey's heart has been in improving the health and lives of those around her.
Breast cancer directly affected her life when her grandma Joyce was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2012 and bravely fought the disease until her death in 2013. Now with two daughters of own, Hailey wishes nothing more than to find a cure for this disease.
Hailey and her husband moved from Eastern Idaho to Boise just before the birth of their oldest daughter in 2013. In her spare time, Hailey can be found chasing her husband Ian, daughters Malia and Maya, and Hungarian Vizla Rosey through Idaho's rivers and mountains.
