Godmother of Silicon Beach & Founder
CoAccel

Godmother of Silicon Beach, Expert Speaker with US State Department, 3x founder, Special Advisor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship to US Ambassador and US Embassy Kuwait, and single mom of twin boys. Cam accelerates the success of Entrepreneurs and builds entrepreneurial ecosystems and communities around the world in order to promote world peace and innovation; she’s worked with 4000+ Entrepreneurs and 650+ startups.

After college, she started her career as the Director of Marketing of Advanced Sleep Medicine Services, Inc., (ASMS) acquired in 2010. She increased revenues by 60% through a combination of sales, marketing strategy, rebranding, content creation, but mostly, the human element — by implementing the why. The culture shifted, as did productivity and profits. People + Profit.

She left to start her own startup. It failed. HARD. Two years, three customers, lots of blood, sweat and tears. LOTS of lessons learned. It also spawned the creation of Coloft.

She cofounded Coloft in 2010, the first coworking space in Los Angeles geared towards technology startups and entrepreneurs. During her four years there, Coloft had over 1400 alumni, including Uber LA, Instacart, Fullscreen and so many more. That level of exposure, in addition to her innate ability to connect with humans at a deeper level, has resulted in a thorough understanding of team dynamics with a keen sense of what works on the product side.

After a prolonged divorce from her husband and business partner, she ultimately also parted with Coloft. It wasn’t an easy process, but through her own life lessons she found the need to help individuals accelerate themselves, and detach from their product.
