My Business


SkillsCamp is a soft skills training company that works with businesses and educational institutions to help their staff and students develop the essential skills needed for personal and professional success. Across all industries, employers and industry leaders are identifying soft skills like communication, teamwork, time management, emotional intelligence, and leadership as critical skills for job hunters and employees alike.
Yet, these core skills and several others are relatively absent in the traditional education model. The result is students who become employees without the requisite abilities to excel in their careers. SkillsCamp teaches this “missing curriculum” to help people become more employable and more effective leaders and contributors. SkillsCamp offers live in-person and online programming, custom content, and a just-in-time online course portal.
Some of the skills taught at SkillsCamp include:
Active Listening
Burnout & Stress Management
Confident & Concise Communication
Emotional Intelligence
Intergenerational Communication & Understanding
Personal Branding
Productivity & Time Management
and many more...
My Non-Profit


#SafeSocial was built on the success of Bailey’s work and research into social media’s impact on mental health. #SafeSocial is a socially-minded organization that helps people gain the benefits of social media with less risk. They investigate social media’s impact on mental health and create solutions to help people be well before, during, and after social media use.
Beginning with Bailey’s signature 5 Steps Towards #SafeSocial, they offer resources, strategies, keynotes, and workshops, with courses and books coming soon. If abstinence, without consequence, is not an option, how do you practice #SafeSocial?
Some of the resources developed at #SafeSocial include:
Lesson plans for educators and parents
Parent guides to having “the talk” about
Free downloadable activities to build the
