Upon her return to Portland, Oregon, she founded the Portland Meat Collective, a one-of-a-kind traveling butchery school that has become a local and national resource for meat education. In April, 2014, Camas Davis launched the Meat Collective Alliance, a nonprofit corporation whose mission it is to spread similar meat education programs of breadth and depth across the country. Camas and the Portland Meat Collective have been covered in the New York Times Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, Cooking Light, Dark Rye, and many other national media outlets. Camas currently resides in Portland, Oregon where, in addition to running the PMC and MCA, she is working on a book.
