Playing career[edit]

Club[edit]

From 2006 to 2009, Ocampo played with W-League club FC Indiana.

In 2010, she signed with Atlanta Beat in the WPS.[4] She made 17 appearances for the club and scored three goals.[5]

On 11 January 2013 she joined Sky Blue FC in the new National Women's Soccer League (NWSL). On 26 June 2013, Ocampo scored goals in the 85th and 92nd minute to lead Sky Blue to a 2–2 tie with FC Kansas City. On 10 August, Ocampo scored two goals in a 3–3 tie between Sky Blue and the Chicago Red Stars.

Ocampo was voted player of the week in the NWSL on 19 June 2013 and player of the month for August 2013.[6] Although she only started nine out of the 22 matches that Sky Blue played in the regular season, she scored a higher percentage of goals per minute of playing time than any other player in the league.[7] She was awarded the Golden Boot as Sky Blue's most prolific scorer.[8]

International[edit]

Ocampo scored a long–range equalizer against England in Mexico's first group match of the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.[9]
