Upon completing her Masters in Architecture from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2010, she did what most Military families do: she moved. An opportunity in disguise, as the one thing that might ruin a career actually paved the way for a much more impassioned and fulfilling path. In a garage near Camp Merrill, GA, Cameron and fellow Military Spouse, Lisa Bradley, founded R. Riveter.
