Camille Robins, Associate

For the last several years, Camille has worked in communications and marketing, and today she helps clients to identify what’s most important to them so that they can live and work in alignment with their goals. As a professional writer and editor, she enjoys listening, pulling together complex information, and distilling it to its essential points - and she’s always thinking up new ways to tell stories innovatively. 

After receiving a liberal-arts degree from Scripps College and working on research for the City of Copenhagen, she landed back in Santa Barbara, contributing to the communications department at Cate School and then helping to run a local yoga studio. When not reading, writing, or dreaming, she teaches yoga classes in town that open mind, body, and spirit to all possibilities.
