Dr. Bailey studied public history and Appalachian history for her masters and doctoral degrees, which she earned at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. Her dissertation examined the local context of the Matewan Massacre, an episode in the West Virginia mine wars of the early 20th century. Her dissertation was published by West Virginia University Press as Matewan Before the Massacre. As an expert on the subject she was selected to be a contributing and featured scholar for the PBS "American Experience" episode, The Mine Wars. Her current research focuses on the life and work of one of the journalists who covered the mine wars. After coming to NKU in 2006 to start the public history program, Dr. Bailey now teaches exclusively online.
