Bailey is another home grown country girl hailing from Beechworth. Given Beechworth is a small town, Bailey and Vaughan share some history of sporting pursuits for Beechworth Football and Netball Club, playing squash and tennis and many other country town activities having shared the same friendship circle whilst growing up. However for Bailey, golf is still the single most relaxing and frustrating sport she has come across!
Bailey has had an assortment of major and minor sporting injuries, which mostly came from her time spent on the netball court playing division one Premier League in Melbourne for 10 years. This peaked her interest in injury prevention and management, and how to best rehabilitate and condition the body in preparation for any activity. This includes pain in any location of the body, whether new or old. Bailey graduated from RMIT in 2013 with an undergraduate degree in Complementary Medicine and a Masters of Osteopathy.
Prior to Osteopathy Bailey worked for Austin Health in Melbourne as an Allied Health Assistant after graduating from Exercise Science in 2007. This experience exposed her to many chronic diseases, injuries and other health conditions and worked alongside other health disciplines to discharge people as quickly as possible from hospital. This aspect is important to Bailey as she believes in getting people better as efficiently as possible and prescribing appropriate exercise and/or lifestyle changes to enable a speedy recovery.
Bailey has also completed her Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology at the start of 2019, which has added another notch to her belt to help in the recovery of injuries. She is also very interested in chronic disease management and prevention.
In her spare time you will find Bailey enjoying many different activities like going down to Melbourne to enjoy her friends company, spectating or participating in many different sports, eating good food, cooking good food (which her dad and Ben enjoy also!), going bush for a couple of days with her partner Ben and much more!
