Bio

Camille Andras

Camille moved to Lake Tahoe in 2011. She has experience working with children from birth through age 18+ in a variety of settings including the home, school, early intervention, community, and private clinic. Camille earned her Master of Occupational Therapy degree at the University of Washington in 2004. Her undergraduate studies in exercise physiology focused on psychology, anatomy and physiology, and the overall workings of the mind and body together.

Camille is passionate about helping children overcome the obstacles that life places in their way. Whether a child was born with a disability, has had an injury, or just needs a little boost to catch up, she is eager to help. Camille values the families with whom she works and understands that it is parents who know their child the best. Camille asks the parent to be a major player in their child’s therapy, ensuring carryover of newly learned skills, behavioral strategies, and newfound confidence long after she has left the stage.

Camille’s journey to her landing spot in the Tahoe area has been full of fun and adventure. Before becoming an occupational therapist she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali, West Africa where she worked in the natural resource management sector. She has traveled far and near, from Guatemala to Alaska, and Ireland to Moldova. She has had jobs as varied as serving as a respite care provider for children with disabilities to setting prescribed burns with the Nature Conservancy. Camille enjoys all sorts of play in the outdoors. She lives in Kings Beach with her wonderful husband and daughter.
