Camille Rochester

Community Engagement Coordinator

Camille serves as 501 Commons’ Community Engagement Coordinator, where she builds and supports strong relationships with volunteers, individual donors, and corporate sponsors. Her work is essential to coordinating and growing the organization’s fundraising and volunteer engagement activities.

Although Camille was born in Seattle and grew up in Edmonds, WA, her family originally hails from Eastern Washington. For university, she headed north to Bellingham to obtain her B.A. in Anthropology at Western Washington University.

After graduating, Camille volunteered at the Experimental Education Unit’s summer program, supporting their mission of inclusive education for all children. Camille then interned with YouthCare’s fund development department, serving Seattle’s homeless youth. Though a Camp Fire Kid growing up, she started her career at Girl Scouts of Western Washington. These experiences crystalized Camille’s commitment to improving the lives of children, families, and communities through her nonprofit work.

When not hard at work spinning straw into gold, herding cats, and making something out of nothing, Camille can be found reading, baking, or playing table top games.

Fun Fact: Camille has always loved critters and at one point during her family had 10 rabbits, 2 hamsters, 4 cats, a tankful of fish, and a fire-bellied toad. She now has 3 cats, Momo, Arya, and Ewok.
