Thank you for taking the time to visit the professional website of Camille Weston.
This website was created with the intention of making my career artistic and statistical data available to potential clients and employers.
While my web design portfolio can be found here and my published articles, web content, and professional business writing can be found here; a printable download of my corporate experience in resume format highlights my experience within the context of Software Sales, Account Executive, and Inside Sales Consultant and can be assessed in pdf format here.
Now more than ever I realize that God gives us unique experiences in life so that, if chosen, we may use those experience assets in order to serve Him with our whole lives and hearts. Today, I choose to serve the Lord in whatever capacity His holy will leads me.
Recently, I attended Andrews University as a theology major on campus and I do intend to complete seminary there at some point in the future by taking online courses.
I am also a church musician and play several instruments, including piano and guitar. Praising God in music is the greatest joy of my life, so I also enjoy volunteering my time and musical ability to play at nursing homes and charitable events.
I have excelled naturally in sales for all of my life. It taught me to listen keenly to my client’s needs with the intention of responding professionally and comprehensively, all while being persuasive and pleasant to speak with. Biblical study and guidance is the most prevalent source of decision making for me in daily interactions. Together, I look forward to sharing these learned blessings with others in Christian ministry.
At present, I am managing an advertising firm as sole proprietor, Christian Designs, as a web designer, content writer and SEO strategist.
My most recent employment position was as the Executive Director of the City of Atwood Housing Authority in Atwood, KS.
I am also a computer programmer in the field of web design and a published author. My exclusively original and hand-coded web designs can be reviewed at www.camilleweston.com/portfolio and my written articles can be reviewed at www.camilleweston.com/publishedworks as well.
Because my expertise in web development is exceptional in the genre of SEO (search engine optimization), you will find that every piece of business writing and design coding that I produce is created with regard to optimum placement in the search engines.
May God bless you in your decision making process and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
