Alayna Hayes

Director of Life Design: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Alayna is a closet creative, karaoke enthusiast, and avid DIY-er who believes most things can be fixed with a few coats of spray paint. As a career transitioner herself, Alayna understands firsthand the unique turns that life and careers can take and believes Life Design can support the constantly evolving journey. She is passionate about supporting first-generation, limited income, and URM students and has centered her doctorate research on better understanding how to support them as they pursue their life’s purpose. If Alayna could tell her college-self anything, she would encourage her to follow her passions even if the road is unknown and nontraditional
