In the fall of 2014, Camille came on board our full-time faculty as professor of screenwriting at Biola. She teaches beginning, intermediate and advanced screenwriting, as well as classes that help students to hone their skills in writing character and dialogue and screenplay coverage.
In addition, Camille is pursuing an M.F.A. in screenwriting at Loyola Marymount University. Currently, she is excitedly planning to make her feature film directing debut with Sorority Sistaz, a satirical social comedy. She is a member of the Writers Guild of America. Her passion is writing and directing women in extraordinary roles.
