Camille is an aerospace engineer turned science communicator and content creator. She shares optimistic and accessible stories about space technology and the crucial role it plays in shaping the world we live in, and our future.

During her 5+ years in the space industry building, and later selling and marketing, cutting edge space technologies, she realized just how much the general public overlooks the value that space technology plays in their daily lives.

Understanding the importance of public support for space technology development, in early 2024, Camille took the big step to turn her popular online platform dedicated to the advancement of space education, The Galactic Gal, into her full-time gig.

Camille founded The Galactic Gal in 2020 to make STEM education more accessible. Growing up in rural North Carolina, Camille's access to STEM careers and role models was limited. Her goal has always been to be the representation she needed growing up.

Camille has extensive experience in space business development and marketing at both startups and aerospace primes. She has worked on a variety of cutting-edge space technologies including commercial artificial gravity space stations, in-space spacecraft refueling architectures, and the Orion crew capsule for the Artemis program. Her experience is invaluable to her ability to effectively communicate what's going on in the industry, and why the general public should care.

Camille has been featured in the New York Times and the Washington Post for her science outreach, and has appeared on NASA TV and Fox Business segments. Camille is also a LinkedIn Top Voice for space, and she speaks globally to schools and professionals about a variety of topics related to the space industry.

Camille graduated from the University of Tennessee Knoxville with a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering. She also attended the University of North Carolina School of the Arts for high school with a focus on trumpet performance. She was a nationally-ranked trumpet player and is an avid believer in STEAM: STEM + Art.
