Camille has been in the senior living industry since 1999 and has a background in hospitality. She began her career with CLC in 2004 as Director of Sales & Marketing for the proposed Holly Creek Retirement Community. Financing for construction of this new community was contingent on pre-selling 70% of the independent living units, and her marketing efforts beat this target. Camille also opened and operated Holly Creek as its first Executive Director and routinely exceeded all of the benchmarks in the Holly Creek bond covenants. She served as Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of CLC between 2007 and 2014, where she led the organization in attaining five-star ratings in all three communities and maintained stabilized occupancy during the recession of 2008. She also managed the repositioning of the Clermont Park Campus.
In 2010, Camille completed the LeadingAge Leadership Academy. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Restaurant, Hotel and Institutional Management from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.
