Camille Serrano is one of seven children born to Carriette and George Hudson.

Raised in Northeast Bronx during the 60” and 70’s, I went to Fashion Industries High School in hopes of becoming the next Versace. However, life happened (literally).  I shifted my goals so, that I could function as a young mom. I attended Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) on the weekends, as I worked in a Soho Gallery as the supervisor of  the “Pucci”  art department.

Now, I am mother to four adult sons, an Artist, Correction Officer, and former President of PTSA Council. Since my retirement from the Department of Corrections, I went back to school and achieved my Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Public Policy, with a minor in Child Development. In 2015, I managed to attain my Master’s Degree in Education, I am currently into my Doctorate Degree. I spent the last 13years working with children with special needs within the Brentwood School District, I  am also a Coach for the Police Athletic League (PAL), and have now started my own business as a Behavior Interventionist/ Parent Trainer. Through my service with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), I exercise advocacy for all in need.
