I'm an Educational Consultant and Admissions Specialist with a decade of experience in the educational sector, and an intimate knowledge of Los Angeles private school admissions. With a focus on the competitive and developmentally critical kindergarten entry point, I help families place their children in perfectly matched learning environments. 

Without proper guidance, parents often end up overwhelmed and under-prepared. It's no easy task to find the best fit school that sets your child up for success, and where they enjoy coming to school each day.

My Track Record


With a calm, methodical, and thorough approach, I help your family arrive - rested and at ease - at the school that feels like home.

"camille was an invaluable partner throughout our admissions process."

"Not only is she an incredibly warm and empathetic human being, but she knows the private schools well – and they know her. She has strong relationships with many of the top schools and advocates for your family in the most authentic way. We felt Camille had a strong understanding of our family values and got to know our child in a deep and genuine way. She is a strong writer and the feedback she gave on our essays was also quite valuable. Camille’s demeanor is one of calm and stability – a particularly valuable trait to have during this stressful time. We can’t recommend Camille enough. You are in good hands with her!"
