Born a Minnesota girl, Cammy grew up in a small town where she participated in self-esteem programs like Girls on the Run and Go Girls! While in high school, Cammy was a Junior Journalist for the Dove Self Esteem Fund. As a Junior Journalist, Cammy was sent to the set of the motion picture The Women, where she interviewed the cast and crew. After her time on set, Cammy was featured in CosmoGirl and on the television show Twin Cities Live.
Throughout her education, Cammy worked to be what she thought she “should” be. She was a successful student and a leader on her campus while building a platform to speak to girls about media manipulation. Through her work with empowerment programs like Girls on the Run, Generation Know from U by Kotex, Girls World Expo and the launch of her non-profit, Rep Your School – Build a School, she became an activist in her community and dreamt of changing the world.
While in high school and college, Cammy traveled the country speaking to young women about self-esteem, media literacy, and cultivating confidence. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls, Cammy continued to speak to young women on a national level.
However, In the process of trying to be what she thought she “should”, Cammy chose to listen to the voice that told her she was never quite good enough. There was always something else she “should” be doing. This constant pressure forced Cammy to realize “perfect” is impossible. Brave is better.
Now, Cammy inspires young women to quit the pursuit of perfection, reject the pressure to be “perfect”, and choose Brave. Now, After receiving her MA in communication studies from the University of Minnesota, Cammy chooses Brave even when she feels pressure to be “perfect”. Now, Cammy has made it her mission to be a Brave role model for girls and women of all ages.
