Peyton Glendinning
Legal Assistant

Peyton is currently enrolled in the Paralegal Program at UNC-Charlotte, which will conclude in December 2019. In May of 2018, she received her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts with a minor in Sociology from Catawba College in Salisbury, NC. While on a full-tuition scholarship at Catawba, Peyton immersed herself in interdisciplinary, academically rigorous coursework. In her time there, she concentrated in Directing and mounted three full-scale productions from the director's seat.  

Her extracurricular involvement led her to work in law, as it primarily centered around her true passion; advocacy. She served as President of the oldest society on campus, The Blue Masque, for two years in a row (something that had not been done since the ‘80s). In addition, she was on the Honors Council of Students for the Catawba Honors Program for three years, as well as the Theatre Arts Student Advocacy Board for three years, two of which as Vice-Chair. She also served the college-at-large as a Resident Assistant (R.A.) and on the Student Conduct Board.  

Her work experience is based in serving the community through event services, non-profit work, and arts enrichment. She is a Floridian by birth and a North Carolinian by choice. In her free time, she enjoys exploring Charlotte’s rich arts scene, thrifting, and reading about Social Theory.
