Camille has always had a "glass is half full" outlook on life. Being the eldest of 5 younger siblings, allowed her to begin honing her mediation skills at a VERY young age. Anyone with siblings or who has spent time around children understands how delicate of a situation that can be. Listening to and acknowledging the tiniest details provided by both sides of an argument makes a huge difference in the outcome.
Later she pursued a degree in Marketing Management because as a creative she loved the thought of listening to ideas and bringing life to them. Almost directly after graduating, she took a temporary position in a law firm where a friend was working to bring income while she looked for her dream marketing position. A large part of her duties included direct client contact, which meant a lot of listening. Before she knew it, she had registered for a Paralegal Studies program. Fast forward twenty-seven years later, she still works as a paralegal in addition to serving as a Registered Civil Mediator.
In addition to her professional endeavors, Camille is actively involved in listening to and serving her community needs. She is currently serving as the President of Tucker Optimist Club which focuses on improving the community by improving the lives of children, families as a whole, and veterans. She also founded Citizens for Family Activities in Tucker LLC and organized Tucker's first ever New Year's Eve festival in 2019, an event which is fast becoming an annual tradition.
Camille has 1 child, a daughter, who is pursuing a degree in education.
Communication, or lack thereof, is often the culprit in disputes. When emotions are running high it can be difficult to clearly state your thoughts on a subject as well as difficult to really hear what the other party is saying. As a Registered Civil Mediator, my job is to listen to each party and effectively relay the wishes of each party to the other. Having a neutral involved can relieve the emotional stress a party feels when speaking directly to the person or persons with whom they are in a dispute.
Sometimes the dispute is not really a dispute at all, but instead a need to be heard. Once each party really hears the other, there is a greater chance of reaching an agreement.
It is not a the job of a mediator to suggest settlement compromises or to pressure either party into going along with the other. It is not the job of a mediator to provide legal advice, financial advice, or counsel the parties in any capacity . It is the job of the mediator to listen and to relay. Nothing more and nothing less.
Civil Mediation covers a wide range of situations such as:
In a perfect world every mediated case would reach an agreement. However, as we do not live in a perfect world, reaching a settlement is not always possible. Sometimes the wants of the parties are just too far apart. In those instances, a judge may have to make the final determination of what is to happen.
Mediation offers the parties a chance to have control over the final outcome, by giving each party a voice in the final agreement.
