Number 5 out of 7 children, Demetria was born in San Jose, CA and raised in Fullerton, CA. She tried to play football but after a few tough games, she realized her calling was in the performing arts. As a vocal performance major at Oklahoma City University she was a featured vocalist with the Surrey Singers, created her One-Woman Show as well as being a featured performer in numerous theatrical productions. She has performed throughout the US, Philippines, Japan and Indonesia. Demetria is a professional Actress / Vocalist / Voiceover Artist and some of her favorite roles include Ethel Waters, Ethel Waters His Eye is on the Sparrow (2007 Barrymore Award Nominee for Best Actress in a Musical); the Nurse, CBS' Hack; Perlene Scott, HBO's The Wire 4th season; Lutiebell, Purlie; Mrs. Ott, Susannah; Chiffon, Little Shop of Horrors; Susannah, Tintypes; Mama Morton, Chicago; Electra, Gypsy and the Charlene Woodard Role in Ain't Misbehavin'.
