Camille--About.jpg

As a strategic storyteller, my #1 purpose is to help you tell your story.

 

I’ve dedicated my career to helping people tell their stories.

Why do I do what I do?
Because I know what it’s like to keep a story inside.

That might seem like a strange thing for a professional storytelling to say. After all, I’ve been a storyteller my whole life.

I’ve been writing pretty much since the moment I learned to hold a pencil. I started self-publishing around the age of seven. I have an Honours degree in English from one of Canada’s most respected universities. And I have nearly 20 years of work in the communications industry under my belt, including marketing, advertising, public relations, journalism, B2B, and non-profit.

Yet for years I wasn’t telling my own story.

I was born with a heart condition called “complete heart block.” In the simplest terms, it means my heart beat was a bit erratic, and a bit slower, than a heart should be.

Knowing there was something wrong with my heart made me feel deeply vulnerable. I felt ashamed. Of course, as an adult, it’s easy to see that a heart condition is nothing to be ashamed of. But as a young person, that shame took root. So I hid the truth from others. The story of my heart became my secret.

It wasn’t until I was around 30 years old that all this changed.

A friend and mentor invited me to share my story at a motivational speaking speaking event. So I turned my experiences into a story, I gathered my courage, and I stood on stage before a large group of complete strangers and, even scarier, friends.

I finally told my story. And it changed my life.

 
 

After the speech, dozens of people — with all different kinds of experiences and backgrounds — told me that my story resonated with them.

They were inspired. They felt less alone. And they wanted to share their stories with me.

That’s when I realized that something very important.

I learned that I could make an impact on others.

A story, well told, is a powerful way to connect with and help other people.

A genuine story, well told, can also do wonders for your business. My story proved to be more effective than any resume or portfolio. It led to my own clarity around what I do and who I do it for. It infused my business mission, my branding, my communications materials, and so much more. It also established strong bonds with clients, customers, new people in my network, and existing relationships.

Telling my story led me to develop a thriving business while living and working authentically and from the heart. What could be better?

After that, I embraced my story — and my mission to help other people tell their stories.

That’s why I’m here, and why I do what I do.

Everyone has a story. What’s yours?

 
Camille is able to take all the thoughts and ideas jumbled in my brain and help me turn them into a beautiful story. I have a lot to say, but don’t always have the right words to say it. Camille helps me tell my story in my own words, so it sounds like me — only better. It’s incredible.

She helped me tell my story in a way that impacted infinitely more women than if I had told it myself.

Camille believes everyone has a story to tell, and cares deeply about helping them tell it, and it shows. Her passion for her work is palpable.

She makes me feel like what I have to say matters.

Camille has helped me, and Precision Nutrition, with all things content. From editing, to creation, to ideation, to strategy. Camille is talented, smart, thoughtful, creative and fun. Those qualities, plus the fact that you can count on her, makes her a dream to work with.

While it’s probably best to say something about how I loved every minute working with Camille that’s not quite true. Because, acting as a thought partner, she’s often challenged me to think harder and think differently. This isn’t always delightful. Sometimes it hurts. But it’s always lead to better ideas and better work. Work that I’m proud of.
