About Me

Born in Manizales, Colombia, Lucia received a bachelor’s degree in Education at the University of Manizales.  Having commenced her career in teaching, modeling opportunities soon pulled her life in a different direction.

She won a nationwide petit modeling contest and soon after was selected to present entertainment news for the regional television channel, Telecafe.  Her big break came when she was selected as a “Chica Aguila” for Aguila Beer, one of the most prestigious modeling jobs in Colombia.  This led to becoming a TV host for the country’s top TV network, Caracol, where she presented entertainment news.   She quit Caracol to pursue international modeling opportunities in Latin America, Europe and Australia.

She also studied acting in Colombia and Venezuela before landing roles on several successful television series for NBC Universal’s Telemundo channel including La Mujer en El Espejo and La Tormenta.

She moved to Miami in 2006 where she has continued modeling for print and TV.

Over the course of her modeling career she has worked for such clients as Coors Light, Volkswagen, KFC, Red Lobster, Coca Cola,  Chevrolet,  McDonald’s, AT&T, HBO, Hard Rock Café, Samsung, Proctor & Gamble, and Johnson & Johnson amongst others, as well as dozens of national brands in Colombia.
