Upon arriving in the Philippines when she was 13, she was one of the contestants in GMA's Metropop Search. Aside from that in 1999, Roxie became a mainstay in the GMA's then top-rated youth oriented show, Click, she learned so much in her 2½ years in the show. Roxie also made waves in the TV drama series Kahit Kailan and Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga (I Hope It's You). She was also a regular on SOP and guest-starred in several GMA shows. Her song "Kung Alam Mo Lang" ("If You Only Knew"), the Filipino version of the famous Korean love song "Because I'm a Girl" by Kiss, topped the Philippine music charts. She also has an album entitled "Roxie".

Other ventures[edit]

She has starred in a contemporary full length film, Mudraks, which was screened for competition in 2006's Cinemalaya Film Festival. Roxanne played the daughter of the lead actress, Rio Locsin. The movie is about a dysfunctional family who never talk to each other.
