She is best know for her portrayal of Tiffany Warren in the sitcom In the House.
Maia Campbell, the daughter of celebrated African-American author Bebe Moore Campbell, was born in Takoma Park, Maryland. She moved to Los Angeles, California with her family at the age of seven. Growing up, she spent many summers in Philadelphia studying voice and starring in productions at the Freedom Theatre. She also studied theatre at the Marla Gibbs' Crossroads Theatre in Los Angeles, and at Spelman College in Atlanta for one year before working on the sitcom In the House.

Although Campbell has become best known for her role as the witty adolescent daughter on the series In the House, she has been frequently seen on television. She was featured in a regular role as Nicole in the series South Central, portraying Larenz Tate's girlfriend, and also had a guest role in Thea.

She also had a minor role in John Singleton's Poetic Justice, with Janet Jackson, playing the role of Tupac Shakur's cousin in Oakland. Her other screen credits include the television movie The Reindeer Kid Jr. and she also hosted the young adult magazine show Twenty-four/Seven in 1995.
