There’s no place like home... and it can be anywhere from the Horseshoe to Australia, alumna finds

By: Chardonnay Ismail

1996 BARSC graduate Julye Johns Bailey moved to Australia in 2018, but no matter how far she is from the Horseshoe, her Gamecock pride remains.

Born to two South Carolina graduates, Bailey said that the South Carolina Honors College was the first place that made her feel at home. Before entering as a freshman, she'd already lived in multiple cities and countries.

During her time at South Carolina, Bailey entered the Honors College's Baccalaureus Artium et Scientiae program, which allowed her to study multiple disciplines and prepared her for law school at Vanderbilt University.

In her career as a medical malpractice lawyer, Bailey is a partner with Huff Powell Bailey and was named a 2018 Georgia SuperLawyer. Now, living in Australia with her husband and stepchildren, she continues to practice with her firm.
