Meet Hailey

In January, we're celebrating Hailey!

Hailey Pickerel Hailey Pickerel, associate at Huron Consulting Group
How long have you been affiliated with Make-A-Wish and in what capacity? 
A little over a year as a wish-granter
What is your favorite wish story or experience with Make-A-Wish? 
Several months ago, I met a little girl whose wish was to go to Paris to make macarons. Her parents wanted the wish to be a surprise, and we partnered with Urban Grub and Sweet Darling Patisserie to throw an amazing wish reveal party. Seeing her face, surrounded by her family and friends, learning her wish had been granted was one of my absolute favorite wish experiences. I also loved the Harry Potter reveal party thrown by the Nashville Public Library.
In what way have you seen the impact a wish can have on a child? 
A few years ago, I accompanied my niece on her wish reveal trip. Her eyes lit up while meeting the princesses, and after everything she had been through, it was certainly a trip our family treasured.
If you could have one wish, what would it be? 
I think my wish would be to explore the Amalfi Coast by boat, complete with a captain and chef.
