Education & Experience

Camara completed her Bachelor's in Social Work from the University of West Florida in 2015. Following graduation, she attended the same school to complete her Masters's in Social Work in 2017.

While in school, Camara was given opportunities to work with diverse populations which include the unhoused, vulnerable children in the child welfare system and those in need of inpatient psychiatric services. She appreciated opportunities to work in several areas in the field of social work and feels these experiences have helped improve her insight and ability to advocate for her clients today.

A Little Bit About Me

"I am a person just like my clients and I will never challenge them to do something I would not be willing to do myself. We all have the same or similar basic needs and no matter the differing circumstances, we will always have this in common. I entered this field with the intent of serving an underserved population and supporting those that need validation and often a voice. I have a family with teenagers which are my life. We are a military family and have gained many challenging, but priceless experiences through our journey. When I'm not spending time with my family I enjoy volunteering in the community, daily exercise, paddle boarding, and thrifting."
