President and CEO (Co-founder)
Camille Pauley is co-founder and President of Healing the Culture, a nonprofit organization that evangelizes and converts people to be deeply, authentically, and permanently pro-life. She is the creator and primary writer of the Principles and Choices© pro-life high school curriculum, and the creator of Life Principles Academy.
From 1993 to 2003, Camille was the Director of Education for the Washington State Chapter of National Right to Life. During that time, she served as a registered pro-life lobbyist, and joined Fr. Robert Spitzer in co-founding the Center for Life Principles.
In 2003 Camille and Fr. Spitzer co-founded Healing the Culture, which uses Fr. Spitzer’s “Life Principles” curriculum to change hearts and minds, and build a culture of life. Under Camille’s leadership, Healing the Culture has quickly grown into an internationally recognized organization with a powerful pro-life message, a multitude of nationally acclaimed products and resources, and tremendous influence in the cultural battle over abortion and euthanasia.
In over 20 years as a professional pro-life advocate, Camille has inspired politicians, judges, lawyers, medical professionals, and church leaders to defend the sanctity of human life. She has trained tens of thousands of students, teachers, religious educators, business leaders, and pro-life professionals in the Life Principles curriculum. She has co-produced six video series, and authored dozens of articles. She has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people across North America and around the world. She has reached millions more through television, radio, and print media.
Camille received her B.A. in Communication from the University of New Mexico, and an M.A. in Communication from Washington State University.
She likes to note that when she was in high school, she met the legendary actor Gregory Peck and asked how she could become a famous movie star. He answered, “It’s not what you think, kid. Do something more important with your life.” And that’s exactly what she did.
