Bailey is a senior at Bethel University studying Accounting and Finance and is a 2013 graduate of Brainerd High School.
Bailey's father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in January of 2009 when Bailey was just 13 years old. Since then, she has stayed extremely active with the cause, raising over $30,000 for the Minnesota-North Dakota Alzheimer's Association and creating the only education program in the Midwest targeted for elementary-aged students. Bailey also wrote a children's book entitled "Such A Pretty Young Lady: Grandma's Journey with Alzheimer's" in which she has been able to donate a copy to over 100 elementary schools in Minnesota. All proceeds from the book benefit the the Alzheimer's Association and the Children's Miracle Network.
After battling Alzheimer's for nearly 8 years, Bailey's father passed away in December of 2015. Though he may be gone, Bailey has dedicated her entire life to keeping his memory alive so no child has to remind their parent who they are.
