She invites life to fully express its vastness and depth through herself and others. Her intention is to exist as a fiercely loving leader in this time of great change. Camille has prioritized walking her path of healing core wounds and family dynamics, understanding that uniting one’s fragmented energy body toward goodness is paramount to generating any type of true peace (aka success) in the physical world. The biggest way she needed to address this early in life, was by bringing loving attention to the relationship she had with her body, and curiosity toward the pain it was expressing, realizing it to be a manifestation of much bigger forces, beyond herself. Camille’s choice to face and overcome a lifetime battle with disordered eating was the first and scariest door to walk through on her personal path of integration, and activation of her true self. She is here today to share her story….

Camille is stepping up and out into the world in many new ways this year!
