Born in Zichen-Zussen-Bolder, located in the Belgium province of Limburg, on November 8, 1969, Ingrid started her modeling career in Europe in the mid-‘90s. She relocated to Paris before her unique look brought her to North America.

Nearly six years later, she joined a small modeling agency in the Netherlands, and while Ingrid booked some small modeling gigs with this agency, her career didn’t exactly blossom.

Two of the biggest clients Ingrid worked for in Paris were fashion designer Christian Dior and Amway, a marketing company for jewelry and cosmetics. It was in Paris where Ingrid also appeared in the magazines Vogue, Marie Claire, ELLE, and Glamour.
After a few years in Paris, Ingrid made the decision to move to the United States. She saw New York as the gateway to more opportunities in modeling and new opportunities in film and theatre. Success came almost immediately after the move: Her partnership with Amway in Paris led her to become the face of Quixtar, Amway’s sister cosmetic company, in New York City.
