Fay’s Background and Professional Activity
Fay grew up in Harleyville, South Carolina.
She graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science degree in criminology and political science.
She was interested in the law. Before enrolling in law school, she wanted to know what working in a law office was like. She obtained a certificate in paralegal studies from Midlands Technical College and got a job working as a paralegal with personal injury lawyers.
She planned to attend law school but postponed her plans after her father and then her mother suffered serious health issues. She moved back home to help her parents for several years.
“My parents were very important people in my life, so they came first,” she says.
In 2016, she enrolled in Charleston School of Law and obtained her Juris Doctor in 2019. While in law school, she served as vice president of the Student Bar Association and treasurer of the Charleston School of Law Federal Bar Association. She was a member of the Phi Delta Phi Legal Honor Society, the Women in Law Society, the Trial Advocacy Board, and Resolved Law Review.
Outside of the office, Fay enjoys traveling, hiking, and playing the piano.
