Outside of the arts, Camille is a Business Development Associate at Bounteous, a digital technology agency. Since working at Bounteous, Camille has found her passion within the corporate world, but also appreciates her other passions in the Arts even more, such as design, fashion, and creating videos/productions with our team. Let’s create together!! @camillegtheriault
