Read more about Dr. Hayes
Medical training took place in the RPI-Albany Medical College 6-year biomedical program, followed by OB/GYN Residency at the University of Rochester. Subspecialty training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) was done at Ohio State University. She has practiced REI and Gynecology at Rochester Fertility Care for 25 years.
Time outside work is enjoyed with her husband and two daughters. In addition to general good health practices, special attention in given to gluten-free and low-FODMAP eating due to Celiac Disease and IBS.
She is very happy to be a part of the health effort that goes beyond the doctor’s office in Rochester Lifestyle Medicine. A front row seat to the devastation that poor lifestyle choices wreaks on young couples who wish to begin their families is an important impetus.
Dr. Hayes earned her Personal Training Certification through Cooper Institute as an extension of a lifelong enjoyment of exercise. She has done many activities in the past including teaching swimming and downhill skiing. Her current activities include Pilates, walking and biking.

I am a Family Nurse Practitioner, recently retired. My experience includes working in a Headache Specialty Practice, Family Practice and Occupational Health. I have a Plant Based Nutrition certificate from eCornell and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies.
I have followed a whole food, plant based diet for the past several years and think this is an important cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle. Working with headache patients, I focused on lifestyle factors. This includes getting adequate sleep, engaging in regular exercise, maintaining adequate hydration, managing stress and eating a healthy diet.
The CHIP program includes all of the factors noted above in managing a healthy lifestyle. This is an excellent program to help individuals learn how to take control of their health. I am pleased to be participating in this exciting new program in our area.
My husband and I have 2 grown children. I enjoy biking, walking and making quilt projects.

Starting in February, 2015, I removed all symptoms from both diagnosed osteoarthritis and a 24-year difficult struggle with fibromyalgia by removing sugar, flour, most processed foods and eating lots more whole, fresh vegetables and fruit. Pretty naturally in this process, I lost 25 lbs. I am 64, and I have to say it…I look and feel awesome! I know, first hand, the power of eating whole, plant-based food. By choice, I now eat 99% whole-plant based diet but still not yet willing to give up ½ & ½ in my decaf coffee! I feel no need to be perfect but my quality of life has soared by changing my diet. I have a wonderful man in my life, am an active member at the Rochester Zen Center, have 2 dachshunds and live in a cute little bungalow in City of Rochester. Life is good.
