Hayley Bennett Ortner, BA
Hayley Bennett Ortner came to Victoria in 2007 to pursue her running interests and was thrilled to return to the Island in January 2013 to begin her position as advancement officer for Royal Roads.
Bennett supports the development and implementation of a variety of engagement strategies, as well as strategic relationship co-ordination, stewardship and more. She also works on opportunities to further develop funding opportunities for student awards, endowments, bursaries and other projects and events.
Prior to Royal Roads, Bennett completed a bachelor of arts in psychology and marketing from Thompson Rivers University before moving to Toronto, Ont. to work with Mizuno Canada as their brand building specialist in their running division. Wanting to expand her international experience, Bennett decided to move to Kaohsiung, Taiwan in early 2012. Spending nine months traveling around Asia, teaching English in Taiwan and China, she had a great experience and even learned a little Mandarin!
