In 2013, Isaac was named as a Fellow of the Young Lawyers Division of the Mississippi Bar Association. The Emory University School of Law graduate is president of the Ebony Pearls Foundation, which recently awarded over $10,000 in scholarships to college-bound African-American high school seniors.

In her leisure time, she enjoy reading and creative writing.
