Pro Bono Counseling is sad to announce that Camille Wheeler, a PBCP board member of over 20 years, has passed away after a short battle with cancer. Board President-elect Gil Bliss shared, “Camille was an intellectual force unto herself and she used that to good effect for Pro Bono Counseling.”
Former PBCP Board Member Judy DeVito added, “Camille used her voice on the board to ensure we had raised our collective consciousness – and conscience – to support our projects in the most fair and beneficial way. She also was very humble considering the vast expertise she brought to bear. Her questions were always thought-provoking and never deleterious or demeaning but meant to stimulate our process.”
As a long-time board member, Camille was dedicated to promoting Pro Bono Counseling and actively worked to raise funds for the organization.
“Camille was one-of-a-kind. She was always three steps ahead of everyone else, and asked the tough questions that strengthened PBCP as an organization, and me as a leader,” stated Executive Director Amy Greensfelder. “We are grateful for her dedication to the organization and our mission to ensure mental health care access for all Marylanders.”
Camille will be greatly missed by everyone at Pro Bono Counseling. You can read more about her life and legacy by viewing an obituary recently published in the Baltimore Sun by clicking here.
