Paiva Weed was raised in Newport and graduated from Rogers High School in 1977. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Providence College. She would go on to earn a Juris Doctor degree from Catholic University. At an early age, Paiva Weed would meet her husband, Mark Weed, at school. The two would be married for 23 years before Mark Weed succumbed to cancer on August 22, 2009. She would later establish a memorial summer camp scholarship fund in his memory involving the Newport Gulls summer collegiate baseball team.

In June 2010, Paiva Weed denied action to revive a vote proposal that then-Governor Carcieri vetoed that would have brought to the coming general election, the question of allowing table games at locations in Rhode Island. Before the vote and subsequent veto, the President excused herself from the dais, and from the Senate floor made a now notable plea to the Senate to reject the measure. The move was largely seen as an attempt to distance the Senate President from the battle being waged locally in her home district. Regardless, the Senate went on to approve the legislation in a vote 21 for, 14 against. In 2012, Paiva Weed would support the expansion of table games at Newport Grand Casino, but not at Quonset. She would later reverse her stance to oppose expansion for the Newport facility when the matter was re-visited in 2014 after the Newport City Council rejected the proposal locally and for the second time. She cited the growth of neighboring casino projects as part of her reasoning.
