 Who you are

 My name is Camille Croteau. I love to do so much, and I let myself explore a number of things outside of my professional career. I've achieved some amazing things such as being a record-breaking Division 1 athlete  throughout university and completing my PhD in Kinesiology at Western  University in London, Ontario. 
What you do
I am the Chief Operating Officer of okwrite, a content marketing agency that focuses on creating quality content and empowering small business owners. We sell writing, editing, and design services. Things like: fully unique blogs, web copy, email marketing, social media marketing, websites through our partner, and branding.  I love how dynamic this role is, which is why I  pursued it. 
What inspires you
What honestly inspires me are the people around me. I love my friends, family, and coworkers, and yes I even love my clients. The interactions we have and the          relationships build are so fruitful, honest, and built on trust. There is no doubt in my mind that the people around me keep my truly inspired day in and day out.
