Forming a daughter and mother relationship with Karen, Haley got the job as well as a best friend, Lucas Scott.
With her new friendships with the small unit family, Haley began to spend most of her time with the mother and son, and they were both delighted to welcome her to their family, giving Haley a quieter side of life.
At the age of seven, she was sat down to discuss sex with her parents.
Innocent at such a young age, Haley decided to stay a virgin until she was married, although her parents assumed she would lose her virginity as soon as possible, using her older sister Taylor as a prime example.
When Vivian visited Stanford University, Haley was taken along by her parents.
Seeing all the different people that were there gave her the ambition to eventually go to Stanford when she was old enough.
They made a mini golf course on the roof of the cafe and decorated it with lights and used whatever they could to make the course.
Haley, Brooke and Peyton formed a close group and often shared each other's problems and she eventually became best friends with Brooke and Peyton.
Like Brooke and Peyton, Haley was best friends with Lucas Scott from the second grade and he eventually became her brother-in-law and godfather to her son, Jamie Scott. Having grown up in a household with three sisters and three brothers, Haley had no privacy in her house, and though many girls would love six other siblings, Haley hated the idea.
She did, however, have her own dreams to follow and wanted to pursue her music interests, but found it difficult to balance being a mother to her children and following her dreams, as well as her husband's life and constantly changing careers and moving.
After her mother's death Haley struggled with depression but her second pregnancy helped her to recover from it.
