She graduated magna cum laude from West Virginia University with a B.A. in history, and holds an M.A. in International Relations from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.

"I received way more than I was expecting from an editing service through Yellow Bird. I was impressed with their organized process and the high level of communication toward my project. Bailey is a master of her craft and I truly appreciate her outstanding work. Her excellent edits and suggestions make a lot of sense, and have greatly improved the quality of my writing. I feel more confident in my ability as a writer with her at my side, and I have been empowered through the editing process."
