She earned her MSW from the UW School of Social Work with a concentration in Integrated Health/Mental Health in 2013. She has more than 25 years of experience working in juvenile justice and child welfare. She has worked in many departments and in multiple regions within DSHS/DCYF. She worked in child-protective services and juvenile rehabilitation for the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services as well as CFWS, adoption services, adolescent services, and she was one of six statewide supervisors of a regional specialized unit of social workers for the Department of Children, Youth and Families. Her community work includes being a part of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated—an international community-conscious, action-oriented organization, which believes in helping other people excel by creating and collaborating in programming that addresses societal mores, ills, prejudice, poverty and health concerns. In 1999, she helped charter a local graduate chapter in Washington state in which she chaired several committees, organized community projects and held several positions. In 2020, the chapter established its first scholarship in Hayes' name, honoring her scholarship, perseverance, community connections and support of the undergraduate members at the University of Washington.
