She is from Corpus Christi, Texas, birthplace of Whataburger® and frizzy hair. Although very fond of her Texan roots, she was like "Nope!" and moved to New York City right after high school. There she attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy where she majored in Auditioning.
A classically trained singer, Desireé spent her early years gracing the stage in various musicals. Her favorites being Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Into the Woods, Annie, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown and Nightfall on Miranga Island which showed at The New York International Fringe Festival.
