Greg Lavallee
We worked together  •  Director, Engineering, Trove News and Front end Development Manager, Trove (formerly WaPo Labs).

Brandon Thomas
We worked together  •  CEO, Deepwoods Capital. Previously Director of Product, Civitas Learning.
Camellia is very tenacious about delivering on her opinion, both directly and indirectly. She has a vision for how things must be done, and ... doesn't allow obstacles to prevent her delivery. Despite this drive, she also is great at finding positive ways to deliver her vision that incorporates feedback from others in a manner that adds to her vision (vs. allowing feedback to sway her from what she feels is right). She is self-aware of her weaknesses, but also very confident in her strengths. She can do great things with the right partner(s)

Camellia is great at working with complex ideas and tradeoffs, and finding ways to communicate them through visionary design.

Shawn Smith
We worked together  •  VP of Product, Beckon, Inc.. Previously Volunteer Youth Advocate, San Francisco Court Appointed Special Advocates (SFCASA).
