Her work included providing leadership in economic development, environmental safety, educational quality, and governmental organization.

Currently, Ms. Haig is the founder and principal of The Haig Group, a company specializing in policy and leadership development, strategic planning, communications, and government relations.

Ms. Haig is a lecturer at college-level political science courses and for civic groups on the policy development process and she is a published author.
