Her nine match-winning goals were the most in the nation, while her 19 career game-winning goals placed her in a tie for the fourth-highest total in the history of the Big Ten.

Cameron signed with the Seattle Reign in 2013 for the inaugural season of the NWSL. On June 19th of that year the team released her due to a rule requirement, and on June 26th, she signed with FC Kansas City. In 2014, Cameron joined the German team TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and then Apollon Limassol in 2015 to play in the UEFA Champions League group stage matches in August of that year.

She signed with Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2016; it was promoted to the German Bundesliga for the 2016-2017 season.

She represented Canada in January 2013 at the Four Nations Tournament in China and previously represented the country as part of its U-17 women’s national team. She played four matches at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, helping the team reach the quarterfinals. In 2008 she played in the CONCACAF U-17 championship and led the Canadian team, which won a bronze medal, in the scoring.
