Cami joined LEMIT in January of 2008 and is the technical editor with the Leadership Command College (LCC).

She has also conducted instructional presentations in the areas of writing stylistics, grammar, syntax, and effective PowerPoint presentations.
Cami was an editor with the Texas Review Press and co-edited the book “Upon this Chessboard of Nights and Days: Voices from Texas Death Row,” a 200-page compilation of non-fiction writing and drawings from Texas death row prisoners. She assisted with the book from the origination of the idea and collection of submissions to editing the submissions and formatting the book for publication.
Cami was a writing tutor for the Sam Houston State University Writing Center, and she facilitated students in the writing process to develop their unique writing styles and voices. She advised and assisted students with writing levels ranging from freshman composition to doctoral dissertations. While with the Writing Center, she presented at the University of Oklahoma for the South Central Writing Centers Association 2008 Conference on word matrices to encourage better and stronger word use by writers.
While Cami’s academic focus has consistently been on writing and communication, her interest in law enforcement has kept her connected to the field of criminal justice. She has worked both as an Investigator for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services in the Child Protective Services Division and as a volunteer with the Lubbock Crisis Team.
