Camille grew up in a strong Christian home and was saved and baptized at a young age. The seventh born of nine children, her Biblical world view began to develop through her home school education and family/church influences.
Although she was very tender-hearted and sensitive as a child, Camille’s heart became numb and drifted from the Lord in her teens and early twenties. However, the Lord began to gently pull her closer to Himself when after a series of challenges in college, she hit bottom emotionally and physically and turned to Him in desperation.
Early in the Spring of 2017 before her senior year, the Lord opened the door for her to attend Ellerslie Mission Society for the summer. There, she was introduced to Jesus on a deeper level than she had ever known and began to passionately pursue and to more deeply surrender to Him.
In May 2018, she graduated from Florida Polytechnic University with honors, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. That fall, she obtained a job as controls engineer at a pharmaceutical blister machine manufacturing company.
However, God had impressed upon her heart to take a season of anonymity and go overseas to serve the servants of God to further her own personal growth and discipleship.
Finally, after reaching out to a reputable missionary family in Uganda, she resigned from her job in December, and in January 2020, left everything and everyone she knew, and stepped onto foreign soil to serve a family with six children for four months. During this season, she saw the white harvest and the need for workers and a willingness to go was born in her heart.
