Cameron Dixon

Cameron Dixon
Cameron was born and raised in rural Ravenel, just outside of Charleston. Her hardworking family owns a blueberry farm in Ravenel, which helped put her through rigorous nursing school at Clemson University. She has been a registered nurse for 10 years, working almost 8 years fueling her passion for caring for sick babies in the Neonatal Nurseries at MUSC. She recently changed nursing jobs, still exhibiting her passion for the tiniest patients and their moms, but now working as a Nurse Case Manager for high-risk maternity and NICU patients. Cameron is happily married to Andy, her handsome high school sweetheart, and together they have one beautiful daughter and one rambunctious son. They LOVE the outdoors, especially in the Lowcountry, and their favorite hobbies are boating in the picturesque waters around Charleston, riding their ATVs, and camping with their friends. She has five dogs, two of which are dachshunds, which she is obsessed with! Cameron loves living in the Lowcountry - her roots run deep in this land, and she couldn't imagine living anywhere else!

Legos In A Pandemic
