Introduction: I have been a professional actor and singer for the last 18 years. As an actor, my experience ranges from theatre to TV/Film. I've done national tours, off-Broadway shows, and appeared on multiple TV shows (Netflix, NBC, CBS, Fox). Performing is not just a job for me. It's my passion and something I take very seriously. I love getting to know and support fellow artists. And I love helping people realize their skills and potential!

Desiree is an amazing acting coach! Before taking acting lessons I had no experience and I was also really nervous. I remember her telling me and really emphasizing there was no need to be nervous, that we were going to work hard and have fun, and she couldn't have been more right! She is so talented and has taught me so much. She is so easy to talk to and gives excellent feedback on whatever you are working on. I have improved on my acting skills and my confidence by working with her. She is a great teacher!!

Where can I start! Acting lessons with Desiree have been nothing short of great. I'm a beginner with acting and taking my first deep dive into the craft. Desiree has been patient and informative. She allows you to move at your own pace while giving you tips and suggestions on how to improve and elevate your performances. I honestly look forward to working with her every week knowing I'll discover something new about acting and myself. This experience has been what I needed to gain confidence and put myself out there as an artist. Thanks for everything Desiree 😊😊

Desiree is an absolute delight to work with! Words cannot express how grateful I am to have found such an amazingly kind, patient, and supportive teacher. She has taught me so much in only a few lessons. Though I had been anxious about getting into acting again, she was very uplifting and was able to make me fall in love with acting all over again! I can't reccommend her enough! :)

This is my first private acting lessons and I’m so grateful. Desiree more than being a great professional, makes you feel comfortable by creating a safe space. Classes are fun, they have an objective and it’s awesome all the feedback you receive from her! She makes my acting lesson so worth it. It’s the kind of teacher that helps you in and out the lesson. Thank you 😋

Desiree has been an amazing teacher. I am an amateur actor and was looking for a coach to work with me on a reel script and help me work on acting basics as well as audition coaching. She is very knowledgeable, breaks down scripts so it’s simpler to work through and really takes her time to make sure I understand the character before delving into the script. She gives constructive feedback and really cares about her students. I would highly recommend Desiree for new or seasoned actors looking for a coach.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    As I know we are in uncertain times, especially financially, I am offering your first introductory lesson at a discount price of $30. Each subsequent 1 hour lesson is $60/hr.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Before we have our first lesson, we will have consultation over the phone or through video chat to discuss your experience and goals for these lessons, as well as what taking lessons with me would entail. Every actor is an individual artists and has different coaching needs depending on where they are at in their career or education, so I want to tailor to your individual goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have my B.F.A. in Acting from Montclair State University. Since then I have continued my training with private lessons in many different fields of performance: voice, scene study, commercials and voice over acting.
