Hayley Lewis is studying Spaceflight Operations in Embry-Riddle University. She grew up in North Florida with not a lot of options for post high school education or exposure to STEM. In 10th grade, her mathematics teacher was a prior NASA engineer. She developed a robotics program and FIRST robotics team where Hayley found home in engineering. She was encouraged to apply for a NASA education program, Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars.

As a student, Hayley has been active in Cross Country & Track, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Student Government, Student Finance Board, FIRST Robotics's FIRST in Florida Alumni Association, and The Mars Generation, in addition to serving as President of the Spaceflight Sciences, Policy, and Operations Club. She has previously interned at Crews Engineering Services, LLC, Trademark Construction, the Terran Sciences Group, and the Space Studies Institute.

As a Brooke Owens Fellow, Hayley worked at the  Mojave Air & Space Port, where she assessed the facilities active Test Site Area operations and options for future improvements. She also developed for recommendations to safety response plans and related operations.

Hayley currently is finishing up her undergraduate degree at Embry-Riddle's Daytona Beach campus. Later in summer, she will begin her new full-time job working for Boeing as a Satellite Systems Engineer.
