Payten graduated from Cal-State Monterey Bay with a bachelors in Liberal Studies and a Minor in Human Development in 2020. While attending college, she played two years of basketball but due to a few injuries, it was time to retire. However, coaching and playing basketball are still one of her many passions.

In total she has been in a classroom since she started college when she was eighteen years old.
Teaching, coaching, and helping her community is what she enjoys most in life. Payten is looking forward to joining the Holy Spirit Community and helping her students grow and succeed throughout the school year.
