Hey everyone! My name is Jenn Haley. I grew up in Coventry, Rhode Island, a town located 35 minutes away from the Academy. Being so close to my hometown definitely has its perks as I get to see my parents, my awesome twin brother, Matt, and my friends often. I am so grateful for the support from my family and friends, both from home and at the Academy, and I don’t know what I would do without them.
Attending the Coast Guard Academy has been a longtime dream of mine. After finding out about this amazing place where you acquire a great education and train for an exciting, adventurous career as an officer in the Coast Guard during my freshman year of high school, I was hooked. I worked hard throughout high school and am thrilled to be lucky enough to earn an appointment and be here today.
At the Academy, I will be running cross country and track. Some of my best memories in high school were from being a part of the XC and track teams, so I’m very excited to have the opportunity to continue running here at the Academy. Other than that, I enjoy listening to music (mostly KE$HA), shopping (although it’s not quite as much fun when you can’t actually wear the clothes…), and just loving life.
I’m so excited to be able to share my awesome adventure with you all and if you have any questions/comments/anything at all feel free to email me because I would love to help. My email is Jennifer.H.Haley@uscga.edu. Thanks for reading!
