Enter, Stage Left
A self-titled chameleon in the business, Andrea’s journey began in Armenia, Colombia. Shortly after her birth, her family moved to South Florida in search of a better life. It was then that Ocampo showed her first signs of a love for entertainment. Enrolled in dance classes at an early age, Andrea’s life has always involved performing. “As a kid, just about my favorite thing to do after school was put on a pair of ridiculously high leather boots, smear my mom’s red lipstick on, and dance to Vanilla Ice’s ‘Ice Ice Baby’ in front of the mirror,” recalls Ocampo. “A few years later, I traded in my hairbrush for a real microphone, quickly earned a degree in broadcasting from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, and started living my dream.”
A Jack of All Trades
During the off-season Andrea’s talents are widely sought after in the world of entertainment and lifestyle hosting, with many national television shows to her name. She recently wrapped a travel series for the Walt Disney Company where both she and Mickey Mouse take you through the various activities available while visiting the company’s Orlando theme parks. She’ll also be making an appearance on the Travel Channel as she goes on an unforgettable adventure to Greece on the upcoming show “One Way Ticket”. Experienced in digital media in a variety of formats, Ocampo has covered prestigious red carpet events, including being featured as an entertainment expert on “CNN En Espanol”, Yahoo!, CBS4, Fusion, Univision and others. Thanks to her overwhelming versatility in everything from cars to sports, pop culture, health, travel, and fitness, it’s no wonder Andrea has been nicknamed the Media-Gypsy.
