Hi there. My name is Camille and I work as a content specialist at Yoast. I'm part of the Search team and my main focus is writing useful content for our SEO blog. Content that will help you on your SEO adventure, regardless of where you are!
My love for content started at a young age when I discovered books. Novels, fantasy series, classics, biographies, and the occasional comic book. They all create their own little world you can dive into whenever you feel like it. But our world has lots of stories to tell as well. That’s why, after a few years of working in online marketing, I decided to focus on content marketing.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communication & Multimedia Design and a Master’s degree in Media & Influence. Besides my interest in media, I also enjoy being outdoors. Taking long walks, swimming, or going to a music festival with friends to wind down and recharge my batteries. I live in the lovely town of Elst with my fiancé Nico, our son Sam and our cat Nami.
