Badass Moms: A Motherhood Revolution

May 2, 2023

Bailey is an adventure mom with two little buddies, ages 4 and almost 2. She is an American, currently living with her high school sweetheart-turned-husband and kids in New Zealand. Before moving halfway around the world, she travelled full-time with her family for a few months in their self-built camper van (and some Airbnb’s).

She loves having many projects at once and has worked as a backpacking guide, marriage and family therapist, and volunteered on her county search and rescue team.

She loves a burger after every backpacking trip and a long, cozy homebody spell after each van trip.
