As an athlete, model, dancer, fitness consultant, dance instructor, dietetic technician and nutrition coach, Desiree Nathanson is as well rounded as any Fitness Universe competitor. She began her formal dance training at the age of four at Flash Dance at Florida Ballet Arts in Sarasota, and continued through her discovery of dance teams in high school. From there she became a Dazzler and went on to dance for the University of Florida Gators dance team where she performed all over the country, including the 2000 Men’s Basketball Final Four.

Following her four years at UF Desiree broke into the professional world of dance as an 'A-Town' dancer for the NBA's Atlanta Hawks. Currently, Desiree serves as an official trainer for the Atlanta Hawks Cheerleaders. She was privileged enough to perform at both the 2002 NBA All Star game and Celebrity All Star game. She has traveled internationally to represent the NBA in China, performing in the Guangzhou and Chengdu provinces and has also performed at games for the Reynosa Correcaminos, the Hawks' sister team in Reynosa, Mexico.

Desiree has worked with several music artists including The Sugarhill Gang, MC Hammer, Kool and the Gang, American Idol finalist Ejay Day, Bryce, Cat Chang and Pilar Montenegro.

Desiree earned her Master of Science (M.S.) in Health Sciences with a specialization in Nutrition, from Georgia State University, and has since earned the title dietetic technician, registered (DTR).

Throughout the week, Desiree teaches a variety of exciting dance and fitness classes at Dance 101 in Atlanta. She also trains and manages her individual fitness clients throughout Atlanta, in person and her clients throughout the country, online. She competes on the Fitness Universe circuit.
