April ’24 DAR Star: Haley Arner

by Lindsay Tuck Morris

We work with absolutely incredible people—and we all have varied interests and experiences, which adds to the unique makeup of the University of Georgia. We’ll be regularly spotlighting a few rock stars from around the division so that even if you don’t cross paths with them in the break room or Zoom with them on a weekly basis, you can get to know colleagues who can enhance your work life and productivity.

Without further ado, please enjoy our Q&A with Haley Arner …

Name: Haley Arner

Title: Communications Coordinator

  • As a project manager, I am a liaison between the DARCOMM team and the DAR units that I serve. A typical day includes planning and executing communications and marketing tactics in support of unit projects and goals. We love gaining insights from our units! The more we know about a project, the better we can tailor our communications to best support your goals.

Where can we find you?

  • Online: ude.agu@renra.yelah
  • On Campus: 1 Press Place
  • At Home: Athens, Georgia

Time in DAR: Almost two years!

Where did you grow up: Suwanee, Georgia

What is your favorite reason for working for UGA/DAR? The people!

What is your favorite spot in Athens to grab lunch? My team jokes because at lunch you can typically find me in the first floor break room (or North Campus, on a nice day) enjoying an Uncrustable.

On a typical Saturday evening, you can find me … At home, watching a movie or playing Scrabble with good friends.

No. 1 tip for someone just joining DAR: Meet as many coworkers as you can! We work with some awesome people and knowing them will only enhance your time with DAR.

Favorite book or podcast: Harry Potter, always! (pun intended)

Lately, I’ve been watching … Gilmore Girls

My dream vacation (cost and time aside) is to visit … Portugal or Argentina

We hope you learned something new about Haley. We are lucky to have her on our DAR team! Feel free to reach out to her if you have questions about communications or need some Scrabble tips.
