Camille was originally born in Mamaroneck, New York. She began winning beauty contests in her early teens including The Stephanie Gibbs Model Search in 1995. A year later she was crowned Miss Teen Florida in 1996 as well as Miss Jamaica US 1st runner up in 1997.
Camille was known as the main villain of her cycle. She formed a rivalry with Yoanna starting from episode two. A house meeting was started because of Camille's attitude in the house. Yoanna famously yells "I'm not finished!" when Camille interrupts her.
She proved to be a strong competitor, getting the first call-out in episode one, but was constantly criticized for her attitude, such as the spokesperson judging challenge in episode five. The judges didn't like her arrogance, and was in the bottom two with Xiomara. Next episode, she developed an allergic reaction, making her lips swollen, and missing the acting challenge exercise. At the actual challenge, Camille didn't follow the script lines and made up completely new ones, angering Tasha Smith-Arqese.
Camille and Yoanna patched things up in episode eight, where Camille even shared her go-see challenge win prize with Yoanna, but later she told Tyra that Yoanna may have an eating disorder, which all the girls scolded her on. She was also scolded by the judges at panel with her behavior at the go-sees, including the famous line "This is my signature walk and this is what will make me famous." She was eliminated that week.
The the first episode of All-Stars, Camille was immediately disliked by the house, namely Bianca, as soon as she walked in. After chatting with Dominique in episode two about Bianca's "Candid" branding, Bianca lashed out about it with Bre and Isis, to Camille and Dominique's confusion. In episode 4, Camille is upset about having only bills in her mail while all the other girls have personal letters and gifts from family. She was eliminated that episode for a lack of spark she had unlike Cycle 2.
Camille has appeared on numerous "Where are they now?" installments of Top Model as well as appearances on The Tyra Banks Show, The E! True Hollywood Story, The Fiercee Awards and an episode of cycle 7.
Outside of ANTM, she signed with Major Model management in Milan and New York.
She has been featured on many runways such as BET's Rip the Runway and "ElleGirl presents Dare To Be You: Wal-Mart Meets America's Next Top Model's 2005" as well as its second installment where she walked for Alice and Olivia's in Fall 2006, Escada, and Wolfords of London.
