Hayley grew up in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. She attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in upstate New York where she earned a degree in Chemical Engineering in 2010. After college she was off to the big apple.
One summer night in 2011 Hayley and Punit met through mutual friends. There soon after they began playing on the same social kickball team which met every Wednesday night in the schoolyard. However it was at the kickball after parties where they really got to show off their skills… beer pong and flip cup. They soon became friends and before the last game of the season Punit asked Hayley out on a date.
3 more kickball seasons, 2 trips to Africa, countless dinner dates, 1 marathon, 2 shared apartments, many hours on the New Jersey Turnpike, 3 trips to UVA, 2 failed snowboarding attempts, 1 puppy, and many cocktails later...
Punit proposed on September 12, 2013 and Hayley said Yes!
