A native and former resident of San Diego, CA, Rochelle Belle discovered her love of performing by presenting drama pieces to her high school classmates. During her college years she completed a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. Her goal was to establish her own counseling practice for children, families and couples. But the acting bug had taken hold. In 2003 Rochelle left counseling and worked as a television news reporter for ABC and CBS affiliates. She realized she could also help people by being in front of the camera. She felt the lure of Hollywood and relocated to Los Angeles in 2007. Rochelle has never looked back.
As versatile as she is persevering, Rochelle has become a multitalented performer. Besides acting, producing, directing and composing music, she has appeared in films and worked on television projects for Spike, Investigation Discovery, VH-1, ABC and CBS. She has starred in local, regional and national commercials and infomercials. She often conducts interviews for movie premieres and other red carpet events.
Rochelle loves her work and can’t imagine doing anything else. She knows it is important to give back so she started her own charity, “Bags of Luv”. Her foundation delivers fresh lunches, toiletries and handwritten notes of love and encouragement to the homeless. Positive and progressive, she is serious in continuing to develop and improve her cinematic and television presence. Rochelle’s life and work reflect her personal motto, “Never Give Up”, in her love of acting as well as in her love of people.
