We would like to welcome our new Legal Assistant Intern, Peyton Baum.
Growing the next generation of leaders in our community is important. We believe in Peyton and look forward to seeing her grow on her journey. Peyton Baum joined our team as a high school intern. She works primarily with our Estate Planning and Business Law team. Peyton is a fast learner and thrives when she is helping others. Peyton will graduate from Harrisburg High School in May of 2022. In school, she helps her fellow classmates with their studies, is learning to speak Spanish, and is an active debate team member. Out of school, she not only interns at Harris Law & Co., but she also maintains a part-time job at a pharmacy. Peyton has a passion for education and is constantly looking for new opportunities to grow her knowledge base. When she is not helping our team, she can be found at the gym, baking, or spending time with friends and family. She also enjoys giving back to the Sioux Falls community and has volunteered at the Banquet and also some community projects such as trash cleanup.
Why do you do what you do?
Family and friends are very important to me. Christmas with my family is filled with dressing up, taking photos, and going to church. Thanksgiving brings my grandma’s amazing food and fun with football rivalries. But life does not always go as planned. Experiencing grief at a young age gave me a passion to help others through life’s difficult moments. This passion has led me to pursue a legal internship to explore how I can best serve my community, my family, and those that need protection.
