Bailey’s intersectional approach to Tikkun Olam, or repairing the world, is what drives her passion for environmental stewardship, justice work, and youth development. Bailey has always been in awe of the natural world and believes deeply in the transformative power of the outdoors and understanding the interconnectedness of all beings through meaningful outdoor experiences. Originally from Ohio, Bailey spent many summers hiking, fishing, and searching for crawdads, frogs, and other creatures in the waterways and woods around her. She spent many of her winters and springs skiing in Colorado and made the move to Denver nearly 15 years ago so she could be closer to the mountains and wonder whenever she hears them beckon (which is often).
Bailey is stoked to be working with BCM and helping to engage and encourage youth to embraces and harness their own power and understanding of self through their relationship to the natural world.
When Bailey isn’t busy plugging into the pulse of the city, you can find her searching for mushrooms in the forests with her wife, relaxing on a patio somewhere with a beer, going on squirrel hunts with her dogs, baking bread, jamming out at concerts, and cooking with friends.
