She planned to pursue a degree in physical therapy, and through her studies, she had the opportunity to study abroad in London and Amsterdam. These meaningful experiences inspired her love of travel and changed her entire outlook on life, which Hailey’s parents, Lori and Wayne Brouillet, would like to share with future study-abroad students.
