Writer and Southern Influencer
Amy L. Bailey
Writer and Southern Influencer Amy Bailey has over 20 years media experience from Southern
Living to Robb Report to Birmingham magazine. In 2008 she added entrepreneur to her resume when she began the online magazine, MyScoop.us for the modern Southern woman. A purveyor of Southern culture, Bailey writes about travel, recipes, family, entertaining, and style. You can also find her teaching classes on floral design, recipe demonstrations, and gardening. In recent months, Bailey started the Women of Alabama Instagram featuring women from all backgrounds working together to help Alabama shine. She is a strong supporter of the arts in Alabama and has served on the Alabama Ballet Board of Directors, Virginia Samford Theater Board of Directors, Alys Stephens Center Junior Board, and University of Montevallo Junior Board.
She currently serves on the Huntsville Ballet Guild and Gothic Guild. An advocate for women and children who often do not feel like they have a voice, Bailey volunteers year round with the Boys & Girls Club. She feels that a healthy community begins not by asking, “How can I be successful”, but rather, “How can we help each other be successful?” Bailey firmly believes a beautiful life is “to laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
