Marisa Ramirez's career began when a Polaroid photo of the then 13-year old landed in the hands of a major Los Angeles modeling agency. Within two years, Marisa was working almost every week as a print model and commercial actress, where she had the opportunity to travel to places such as Singapore, Australia, South Africa, Hong Kong and Italy.
The self-professed shy girl began taking acting classes, and began booking guest roles on such television shows as Days of our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Roswell. She also served as host of Senseless Acts of Video on MTV.
From 2000-2002 she portrayed the spirited supermodel Gia Campbell on General Hospital. In 2001, she received an ALMA nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series. In 2002, she was nominated for a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series.
Most recently, she starred in the independent film All Souls Day and in the primetime drama Miracles, opposite Skeet Ulrich.
