Helen Bradham’s career in animal welfare started in her early years when she began bringing stray animals home, and has essentially never stopped. Helen established Hallie Hill in 1988 creating a safe-haven capable of caring for over 200 animals at any one time. Helen attended Converse College, but graduated from USC with a bachelor’s degree in English. She lives on Folly Beach with her seven dogs and one cat from Hallie Hill. She is very proud of her three children: Elizabeth, Margaret, and John. When not rescuing animals, Helen enjoys renovation projects and reading about Nikola Tesla.
