About Haley: 

Haley Stevens is the daughter of Jim and Maria. Her parents met at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan and after graduating they started a small landscaping company located in Utica, Michigan.

Haley’s mother Maria Marcotte spent her career breaking through glass ceilings. She is an accomplished business executive and a former CEO of a successful marketing agency who now serves on the company’s board. She is also a talented wood carver and oil painter and serves as board chair of the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center (BBAC).

After selling the landscape business, Haley’s dad went on to become a public school teacher in the city of Detroit for the last 12 years of his career. He is now proudly retired and active in Kiwanis and Chamber organizations around Troy, Rochester, and Shelby Township — and still doing landscape design on the side

Growing up in an entrepreneurial home, self-determination, fiscal responsibility and hard work was a way of life instilled in Haley from a young age. As a child, Haley had a love for history and became a teenager active in public service and volunteering. It is a dedication to serving others that she has carried into her career.

Notably, Haley served as chief of staff on the Auto Rescue which helped return the auto industry to financial stability and saved over 200,000 Michigan jobs. She has spent her career in economic and workforce development, creating jobs and bringing economic opportunity to communities throughout the Midwest.

Most recently she led a job training program and created the country’s first online certification program for digital manufacturing, which is already changing lives. She has led innovation programs across the country, helping small and medium-sized manufacturers grow. Haley is a frequent speaker on job creation by way of harnessing new technology. She launched a STEM education program which has exposed over 200 middle and high school students to digital manufacturing concepts and processes with hands-on teaching.

Earlier in her career, Haley played a key role in setting up two federal offices critical in creating and retaining Michigan jobs: The Office of Recovery for Automotive Communities and Workers and the White House Office of Manufacturing Policy. She also served as a policy advisor in the Economic Development Administration, where she helped create advanced manufacturing job opportunities located around southeastern Michigan.

Haley was born and raised in Oakland County where she graduated from Seaholm High School. She earned a master’s degree in social policy and philosophy and a bachelor’s degree in political science from American University with honors and distinction. Haley is a woman of faith and a member of Kensington Church in Troy.
