Desirae originally came to Alberta from a small town in British Columbia on a full basketball scholarship to Red Deer College, graduating with a certificate of Hospitality & Tourism Business Management and a General Business Diploma. Since then, she has fallen in love with Alberta, the city life, and has been happy to call Alberta home for a decade. She has a love for the mountains, craft breweries, camping, painting, writing, and playing ukulele. In the summer months you can find her longboarding around the city’s beautiful pathways, on a field playing slo-pitch, camping with her dog and friends or on a sunny dog-friendly patio somewhere.
