Camille Cimini Fruin

Our own Camille Cimini Fruin, who’s been an advertising rep with The Santa Barbara Independent for about 25 years now, just let us in on a secret. She has a son named Ollie: the one she never wanted. The secret child, found on the streets of East Los Angeles, is a boy of the King Charles spaniel variety, mostly. “Having two daughters and two granddaughters,” she confided, “I was very content with all my girls, but having a little hairy boy in the family has been the best addition I could have ever imagined!”
