Prior to beginning her graduate studies, she trained as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist at the University of Virginia Health System. She specialized in critical care nutrition, particularly post-surgical nutrition, and developed her knack for translating relevant research to clinical practice for her peers and superiors.
She is able to consolidate large quantities of complex information into organized narratives and has delivered multiple poster presentations reflecting her research in evidence-based practice.
#JBTL: Nutrition and Lifestyle Blog
Bailey first started her personal website as a nutrition blog to share her science and exercise expertise. Her two goals were to:
- Dispel commonly seen myths in the media
- Provide strategies to readers in both setting and achieving their goals
As she embarked upon her journey as a graduate student in 2014, her interests circled more around student life and the challenges of academia. Struggling with weight gain, she brought the blog back to life in summer 2016 with a fresh new take - her Journey Back to Lean.
In her Journey Back to Lean blog, Bailey writes about how it feels to have the mind of a lean athlete - a former 'fitbunny if you will - and trained nutritionist trapped inside the body of a sedentary student. She catalogues the challenges of time management, eating well, and the slow but steady progress of weight loss.
