Ayni Hailicka

Associate Director of Outreach & Enrollment

Ayni (pronounced "Annie") was raised in a logging town with a population of 400 in Southern Oregon and graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in journalism. That took her on a brief career journey in marketing, but volunteering with youth was a consistent side pursuit. In 2018, she pivoted to her current role with FriendsPDX and now feels most fulfilled when bringing together her two passions: youth development + outdoor pursuits.

When she’s not with her FriendsPDX kiddos, she’s likely getting lost in a book or lost in the woods.
