Haddi attended Westminster College where she played on the women’s basketball team. She later transferred to BYU-Idaho to complete her Bachelor’s in Social Work before earning her Master’s in Social Work from Idaho State University. Haddi discovered her love for social work while working at Lifeline For Youth in Salt Lake City. While attending school, she worked as a receptionist at Ascend Mental Health, and completed undergrad internships at Madison Juvenile Probation, Foundation for Family Life, and 3B Detention and Treatment Center.
Haddi chose to work in this field because of the personal impact therapy has had on her. She attended her first therapy session at 17 years old, and was thrilled with the positive impact it had on her life. She understands the challenges of mental health, and believes that she can help others live a happy and fulfilled life.
In her free time, she loves to play and watch basketball, as well as officiating high school games. In the summertime, she enjoys anything that includes the water – bridge jumping, floating the river, fishing, boating, and tubing.
