Hayley is the only one that has a problem with being in a small town. She is in the same class as Maya Delaney. She is in the choir and the swim team. She doesn't like Maya and is jealous of her. She has feelings toward Rafe and really wants to date him. She is friends with Nicole and has a crush on Corey Carling, and usually makes out with him at parties. She later flirts with Rafael Martinez to make him jealous. She is not well liked by Maya and some of Maya's friends. Rafe tells Maya this is because she has caused Hayley to become an outcast from the other Salmon Creek kids because she stole her test when they were younger. Maya has a strong influence over the others. This relationship is repaired in 'The Calling' as she willingly is captured to save Corey, Sam, Daniel and Maya. Maya goes to save her but informs her that it is a trap and that she should leave quickly.
Hayley later finds out that she is a xana.
