She graduated with honors from the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts, before completing her Bachelors degree in Theatre Performance from UNLV’s Nevada Conservatory Theatre Program. As a veteran of the stage, she has performed in productions from the Las Vegas Strip to as far away as Macau, China. Most recently, Desiree is the Co-Creator/Producer of the Award-Winning comedic web series “Not It” and is also a Co-founder of Triple Click Productions – a female driven production company dedicated to strong and engaging story telling, stemming from a foundation of social consciousness.
