For Cameron, constant improvement is more than a nice idea. Her appetite for finding a better way drives her forward every day. Since February 2017, Cameron has applied that tenacity here at Jackson Spalding, where she works with Orkin and Orkin Canada.

While she did love growing up in North Georgia, her educational ambitions were larger than what her small hometown offered. So, Cameron left the mountains and traveled to American University in Washington D.C., with law school on the brain. She pursued an interdisciplinary track, studying communications, legal institutions, economics and government. Following a powerful public affairs internship with the Department of Homeland Security, she settled on communications.

For her senior capstone, Cameron could have opted to write a compelling essay but decided instead to produce something more memorable. She organized a panel discussion on the media’s portrayal of the LGBTQ community, packing the seats with students and filling the stage with Washington elites. No surprise that this high achiever graduated magna cum laude and was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Society.

After college and before Jackson Spalding, Cameron worked at the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, where she helped minority-owned small businesses navigate the complexities of working with Fortune 1000 corporations. By this point, law school was no longer top-of-mind, but Georgia certainly was. Jackson Spalding became her landing pad, and we are grateful to have her contagious curiosity in our midst.

Her quest for continuous improvement doesn’t stop when the workday ends. During her “down” time, Cameron stays busy organizing the local alumni chapter for her college fraternity and hitting the links–determined to lower her golf score.
