Cami was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. She came to the Bay Area to work in her profession in the visual effects for entertainment industry. As an immigrant she decided to put her bilingual skills to work supporting her fellow Spanish speaking immigrant community. She found her purpose and passion working with people impacted by domestic and sexual violence. She worked as a crisis intervention specialist and a survivor’s advocate for over 4 years, guiding them to navigate the civil and criminal legal systems. Cami was introduced to restorative justice through the Colombian peace process between the government and one of the guerrilla groups and she could see how RJ could intersect with the field she was working in. In 2022, she came to the CHAT project, with the intention to continue supporting and dignifying ALL people impacted by interpersonal violence.
