Bio

Camille Pratt

Camille Pratt earned her Bachelors in Communications from California State University, Fullerton, with an aspiration for becoming a TV reporter. Her first professional job was working as a producer, writer, and assignment coordinator at a local news station in Orange County.

However, after the birth of her daughter, she was looking to make a career change to spend more time with her. A short-term assignment with a video game company led her to work with the marketing team, “and I never looked back.”

She’s since worked in various industries — from small to Fortune 500 companies. She has lead several teams throughout her career in brand management, project management, marketing communications, and events.

“I’ve spent almost my entire career in marketing and still love it today as much today as I did 18 years ago. Being a marketing professional comes with an extreme responsibility; carrying the weight of communicating an important product or service — I covet this opportunity! Each and every day, I remind myself of this great privilege as well as the great privilege to continue inspiring young lives through my work with Higher Ground Education.”

My Story

  • What inspires you about education?

    What inspires me most about education is that it is a gift that it is so empowering and can change so many aspects of life — socially, economically, environmentally, emotionally!

  • How did you discover Montessori?

    I discovered Montessori through researching options for my own daughter when she was approaching pre-school age. However, what little I knew about it wasn't captivating through poorly designed advertising. It wasn't until I started working with HGE that I really got to understand how wonderful Montessori is, and I try to pay it forward by doing the best I can to market Montessori in a way that can appeal to so many families looking for an educational option for their young child.

  • How does Montessori philosophy inspire your daily life?

    Reminding me that we (not just children) are capable of so much more if we allow ourselves the freedom to explore what is possible.

  • Do you have a favorite Montessori quote?

    “Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.”

  • What have you learned from your time working with Higher Ground thus far?

    That anything is possible if you can dream it!

  • What do you enjoy most about working with your teammates?

    Although my teammates are from a diverse background, through our work, passion for marketing, and telling a story, we bond, push each other to grow, and get to learn from one another. Most importantly, we have fun!

  • What are your passions, interests, and hobbies?

    Spending time with my family, traveling, working out, and dancing!
