Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Paisley, and these are some chapters of my story.
I was born and raised in Orange County, California, surrounded by palm trees and green juice. At the young age of 13, I knew there was more for me and more to see and do, so I decided to attend boarding school in cold, foggy, latte-fueled Monterey.
If that doesn’t tell you about my personality, I don’t know what will.
Boarding school was one of the best experiences of my life to date, but again, I knew there was more for me. I attended college at Boston University and fell in love with the East Coast. The well-known family story is that when my Dad saw me pose for a picture on Bay State Road before our campus tour, he knew that I was never coming home.
I graduated from BU in 2017 with a B.S. in Communications and minors in French and Arts Leadership. I was the Interactive Manager of AdLab, the country’s largest student-run ad agency, for multiple semesters, and I credit a lot of my professionalism and confidence to that program. Outside of class, I cultivated my passion for the entertainment industry by interning at theatre companies in Boston and on Broadway. I even share my first Playbill with Kristin Chenoweth! Spending summers in New York was an absolute dream, and I am incredibly grateful for my parents and the supervisors who helped make it happen.
At the end of college, I had some significant decisions to make. I had an extremely successful beginning in the Advertising world at BU. I loved everything about the creative process, brand development, color, writing taglines, and making ideas come to life. What no one in my program knew, however, was that I was still chasing a lifelong dream: I wanted to be a lawyer.
Today, I am proud to be a recent graduate of New York Law School. As an affiliate of the Innovation Center for Law and Technology, I focused my studies in corporate law and intellectual property to continue learning about brands and business development, just from a new perspective. I also served as Co-President of the Media, Entertainment, and Fashion Law Association during the 2018-2019 academic year, and my case comment about the legal status of hot air balloons was published in Volume 64.2 of the New York Law School Law Review. I am now looking forward to starting my career in the coming months!
Outside of ~professional~ endeavors, I love working out, eating good food, drinking good coffee, and exploring New York. I adore everything about New England and LIVE for the change of seasons. I also believe in hard work – I am a true #girlboss at heart. I believe in the power of women working together and the strength of gritty entrepreneurs. I believe in the magic of kindness and compassion, and I aspire to live a life of service and mindfulness in everything I do.
