Brantley joined Jackson Spalding, first as an intern, and was promoted to full-time in early 2018. She supports the Primrose Schools account, contributing project management, writing, research and media relations efforts. She also assists branding projects for The Lovett School and St. Martin’s Episcopal School, of which she is an alumna.
Before finding her way to JS, Brantley held several impressive internship positions. She was the Fan and Family Liaison for The Atlanta Falcons Training Camp, a marketing intern for Atlanta’s 680 The Fan sports radio and the Fill Your Bucket List Foundation in Cary, N.C. and a sports network intern at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Her responsibilities for the hospital foundation involved planning and coordinating sports-related fundraising events, a culmination of all the learning she had acquired in her previous roles.
As a life-long athlete, Brantley originally aspired to be a sideline reporter, and she began college at the University of Alabama with that in mind. Two years in, however, she realized that the constant travel required of primetime reporters conflicted with her homebody goals. She reevaluated her game plan, transferring to the University of North Carolina, where she concentrated on advertising and sports communications.
In her off-time, Brantley lives by the philosophy that dogs are sometimes nicer than people, so she’s always on the lookout for ways to support the canine community. Other interests include snow skiing, exercising, doing anything outdoors and co-leading the same teenage church group she belonged to in high school.
Her family tree is laden with a long line of Brantleys, but she is proud to be the first girl among them.
