HALEY FERNANDEZ

Director of digital communications

As the Director of Digital Communications, Haley manages social media accounts and is a lead on developing communication campaigns for Public Democracy partners and clients, playing a role in database and content development. She joined Public Democracy because of her desire to connect voters with issues and communities they care most about.

Haley was raised in Kings Mountain, North Carolina and considers herself a Tar Heel born, bred and dead. She graduated from UNC, where she studied political communication and learned to communicate with a global audience through her work at UNC’s Global Relations office. At UNC, she led with a campus ministry and traveled to Sweden for a summer as an intern, quickly leading to her admiration of the Swedish culture (and its desserts). Through these experiences, Haley gained a passion for connecting people around the world through common ground and values-based conversations, which she now happily pursues each day at Public Democracy.
