Cameron Hughes


Cameron has spent her professional career lending creative thought, positive spirit, and critical thinking to organizations both public and private. Over the course of her career she has interacted with city, state, and county elected officials in both Illinois and Indiana learning the value and challenge of bi-partisan governance. Currently, as a public affairs associate at APS & Associates, Cameron helps clients achieve their civic engagement, fundraising, and communications goals.

Before starting at APS, Cameron worked in various industries and sectors to assist leaders in developing and propelling their respective visions further and faster. She spent her college years interning for different fashion designers and start-up companies. One of her proudest accomplishments being given the opportunity to work for different designers during two seasons of New York Fashion Week. After undergrad, she served as the senior executive assistant to an entrepreneur for four years before working for the Chicago Urban League where she helped relaunch the nextONE business accelerator program. Shortly after leaving the Chicago Urban League in 2021, she started her own public affairs consultancy, providing logistical and creative support to government-related and civic engagement initiatives. With her varied professional experience, Cameron brings a unique perspective to every project she encounters.

When she’s not at the APS office or client event, you can find Cameron exploring the city of Chicago. While she has been a self-proclaimed Chicago native for almost ten years, she still is in awe of the city every single day. Cameron holds a Bachelor of Arts in fashion business and public relations from Columbia College in Chicago.
