Haynes was the Deputy Executive Director and Chief Counsel in the Senate Majority Office from 2010 to 2014. From 2000 to 2004, she was a Deputy Attorney General of New Jersey, in the Personnel, Labor and Community Affairs section. She is a former Assistant Commissioner Labor for Income Security.
Since 2014, she joined Advocacy & Management Group, a lobbying firm founded by her husband, AJ Sabath, a former Commissioner of Labor and Chief of Staff to Senate President Richard Codey.
