I’m Paisley – I’m thrilled you are here and to have the opportunity to share my story with you.
I was born and raised in Southern California and quickly called Disneyland my true home. During high school at Santa Catalina School (I went to a small boarding school in Northern CA), I participated in my school’s theatre program, was a four-year varsity athlete and competitive golfer, and was told that I shouldn’t study Communications or pursue an artistic degree. (#oops).
Not sure where I would land or what I would study, I moved to the East Coast to attend Boston University in 2013. While I was soon determined to become an international politics expert, I found myself researching marketing internships and hanging out with the theatre kids. I started producing musicals and finding my flow through ticket sales and PR campaigns. I quickly changed majors and began my Advertising concentration in BU’s College of Communication. I never looked back.
Since then, I’ve made it to Broadway, started a few side hustles, found grace through yoga, and I now live in New York City. I started acting when I was seven years old and was known by my high school peers as the future resident attorney/talent agent for the theatre clique. Despite the twists and turns along the way, I still made it to New York.
I am now a student at New York Law School, pursuing a career in Corporate law and Intellectual Property and hoping to help companies and creatives achieve their dreams. My ultimate goal is to become an all-knowing counselor, advisor and resource so that I can help bring projects and ventures to life. I know my industries as both an artsy geek and business brainiac, and I’m confident that this is where I belong. None of this would have happened if I had not chosen to leap into Advertising or convinced my parents that I could make it in New York through a Communications degree and a love for the stage. Today, I have interned at companies like ABC News, I am Co-President of a student organization, and I am learning how to be the best version of myself. When I graduate and pass the bar, I hope to work alongside influential powerhouses…and aim to become one of them too.
Outside of school, I workout, design websites, and write a law school wellness blog. Thanks for stopping by. Please be in touch through my contact page with questions and opportunities.
