A native of Grenada, she has been in this country 24 years, and in the Washington area some 18 years where she first had her own business doing book keeping and administrative work.
Currently, Hayling, a Certified Bookkeeper, is the part time business manager for her own church, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Largo Maryland, a job she will keep while working part time for CCPC.
Hayling has also worked at the Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church. “Fortunately, the Catholics and the Presbyterians use the same accounting system,” Hayling notes, with a smile. Hayling, also co-manages the Women’s Ministry at St. Joseph, including the Gabriel Network that provides companionship and motherly guidance for unwed girls who are pregnant. “It’s an unpaid job with a heart,” Hayling says.
Hayling has two daughters, her oldest is a college graduate who now works for the Miami Heat basketball team, and the younger daughter (a violinist with the DC Youth Orchestra) will soon be a freshman at Molloy College (Long Island, NY).
