Desiree has had a few careers throughout the years running the scale from researcher for the crown prosecutors office, Mental health worker, to most recently first responder. Although through all that she just loves being a wife and a mom who loves creating food and hates seeing anyone leave hungry.

Desiree along with her husband Randy have worked closely with the Metis Nation of Alberta on bringing information on climate change to different regions and zones throughout the province.  Recently they have also been engaging with the Government of Alberta within a Indigenous Electricity technical working group, the North Saskatchewan regional plan and the Lower Athabasca regional plan.

Desiree also sits on the Education and Outreach board of the The Lakeland Industry and Community Association in hopes of educating young people about all our earth has to offer.
