Keith D. Bailey serves the Parks and Historic Sites Division, as the Interpretive Ranger of Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site. He was born in Calhoun, Georgia in 1972. As a youth, he spent a lot of time outdoors with his family and scouting. After graduating high school, he received an Associate’s Degree in Fine Arts at Reinhardt College.
His interests in nature, history, and tinkering have led him to explore a variety of hobbies, including blacksmithing and genealogy. After a couple years working in a dye-house he began to care take his grandmothers farm, was self-employed, and home schooled his oldest child. He spent several years volunteering at RTM and occasionally a few other state parks as a Friend of Georgia State Parks and volunteers with scouting as an adult leader. Returning to school after the economic crunch, he graduated Magna Cum Laude from Georgia State University, with a B.A. in Anthropology.
