Halley Cody is a native Seattle resident with a passion for working in social justice and a lifelong interest and commitment to racial equity.
After attending college on the East Coast, she knew she wanted to return to live and work in Seattle where she initially thought her field would be in production. After an interest in a career change led her to a large corporate litigation firm, she eventually became the Database Administrator and managed all data based evidence.
When the opportunity arose to come to Pride Foundation, she was eager to use her skill set to advance Pride Foundation’s mission. Having volunteered for Pride Foundation in high school, and attended multiple Pride Scholarship breakfasts in the early years of the Scholarship Program, it is so rewarding and invigorating to be a part of such a special organization and team of dedicated staff.
Halley earned a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from Bryn Mawr College, although most of her time was spent in various musical groups playing the violin. Aside from her data pursuits, Halley loves to run, lift weights, eat hot cheetos, maintain her family’s rustic cabin in the woods, and fuss over her cat, Greg.
