After spending ten years living in Manhattan, Camille Nixon could proudly call herself a New Yorker. However, last February, all of that changed when she relocated to Cleveland. Nixon, now a downtown Cleveland resident, is the new Director of Government Program Operations for Medical Mutual. Medical Mutual is re-entering the Medicare Advantage market, and in her new position, Camille is responsible for supporting market re-entry from an operations perspective.


Nixon loves living and working in downtown Cleveland. So much that her sister Melanie, an engineer, moved from North Carolina to be with her! Melanie had spent her entire life in the warm, sunny southern United States. While Cleveland’s cold winters are quite a change of pace, the Nixon sisters are enjoying their newly adopted city. They love the new Heinen’s, which they see as much more than their local grocery store. It’s a neighborhood-gathering place, which offers amazing lunch options and an extensive selection of beer and wine at accessible prices.

Coming from New York City, Camille appreciates Greater Cleveland’s cultural institutions. She refers to Cleveland as the “hidden gem of the Midwest”, and is a huge fan of our sports teams, film festivals, theatre productions, and burgeoning food scene, comparing the “foodies” here to those in major cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles.

 Nixon lived in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood and experienced the neighborhood’s renaissance first hand. The transformation was amazing. As more and more Clevelanders choose downtown living, Camille may experience a second renaissance. Nixon feels it is an exciting time to be in Cleveland, and she has embraced her new home.
