Since her debut, Desirée has starred in over 30 stage productions, including lead roles as Effie White in "DREAMGIRLS", Sofia in "The Color Purple", and Caroline in "Caroline or Change" where she received the RTCC Award for Best Actress in a Musical. She has also portrayed Ella Fitzgerald in a centennial celebration of the music legend in a production she wrote and directed.
