IN HER WORDS:
This summer, I did the powered flight program and spent some awesome time with my family!
Following graduation, I hope to become a pilot or a public affairs officer.
(During the pandemic), I’ve learned to appreciate all the time you have with your friends and family because you never know when you won’t be able to interact with them or be in their presence.

HEAD COACH KEITH BARNETT: Cam is resilient and springy … she’s adaptable to a new system and has an incredible buy in. She’s been a three-year starter for us at two positions, and she’s so effective on the court against any – and every – size player. We will be thrilled if Cam is healthy and able to be a contributor for a fourth year.
