bio-5A 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.” She got her first taste of the business at NBC6 as an intern and shortly after became an NFL Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders. She was able to combine her love for dance in sports into one and was able to take advantage of the opportunities given to her while on the sidelines. Modeling and acting quickly followed and before Andrea knew it, she had an agent and was booking work left and right.
