Payton was born and raised in Central Oregon, where she graduated from Oregon State University-Cascades with her Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She’s worked in a variety of different office and managerial settings but has found a true passion for the legal field. With her previous work experience in criminal law, she’s excited to be part of the Baxter Harder, LLC team and see what other areas of law have to offer.
In her free time, she likes to take advantage of what Bend has to offer. Hiking, paddle boarding, reading, and listening to true crime podcasts happen to be a few of her favorites. Any other time she has is spent at home with her two kittens, Pepper and Ollie.
