Hayes is also a business coach and facilitator for the Hoya Program. This program was chosen by T-REX, CDOT, RTD and Southeast Corridor Constructors as a part of their small business support program. With the Dean of Business from CSU, Keller co-created the Power of Leadership Program - an eight month Leadership program designed to mold and support business leaders as they develop and assume greater roles in the community. This Leadership program integrated skills, spirit and a recognition of female leadership traits into a leading edge learning program.
Hayes was chosen as the "2001 Outstanding Woman in Business in Nonprofit" by the Denver Business Journal and “2002 Women in Business Advocate of the Year” in Region VIII for the Small Business Administration. Keller volunteered six years to the Rape/ Spouse Abuse Crisis Center as an on-line counselor, volunteer trainer, speaker and public relations volunteer. That experience led to her commitment to helping others make anything possible. She continues to strive to "Pay it forward" to her community.
