Roxi D'Lite resides in Las Vegas, NV and is of Métis and French-Canadian descent. As a child she studied gymnastics and later trained in aerial acrobatics with a former Cirque Du Soleil performer.
She began dancing while finishing the graphic design program at St. Clair College. She discovered burlesque by accident in 2005 while working as a dancer in a couples club. She drew her inspiration from both old Hollywood glamour as well as Miss Piggy, and developed retro-inspired striptease acts. After an audience member praised her for "bringing back burlesque", she then studied its culture and history. The Windsor Star notes, "Ironically, Roxi would never have been able to immerse herself in old-time burlesque if it weren’t for modern technology." Mixing the old and the new has become the hallmark for Roxi, often mixing classic-burlesque themes with modern props, pole tricks and aerial acrobatics.
Roxi D'Lite has received numerous accolades throughout her career. Most recently, Roxi D'Lite was named the top burlesque performer in the world.

In 2009, Roxi D'Lite was the first Canadian in history to be invited to compete for the coveted Miss Exotic World title.

She performed her signature act, the Smoking Cigar, which features a 12-foot smoking cigar and ashtray. D'Lite says the act was inspired by an old photograph of film noir legend Marlene Dietrich.
She was voted one of the top 5 burlesque performers in the world and she was named one of the hottest modern burlesque performers in the world. She has been called a "burlesque queen" by the Detroit Free Press and "stellar act" by The Globe and Mail.
D'Lite specializes in pin-up and glamour photography. Her work has appeared in numerous publications including The Globe and Mail. Roxi has photographed the top stars of burlesque but is most known for her self-portraits.

Roxi D'Lite stars in the feature film Burlesque Assassins. The film is a 1950s Cold War-era, adventure-comedy shot entirely in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. D'Lite plays Bourbon Sue, a "hard-drinking, cigar-loving delinquent prone to dust-ups with the local toughs, but also has an affinity for acrobatic dancing. So she joins the titular squad of Assassins, who end up being the world's last line of defence." D'Lite trained in hand-to-hand combat for the film's fight scenes. The film also features real-life burlesque performers from around the world.
She starred in the critically acclaimed Wonderland, a burlesque inspired re-telling of the Lewis Carroll classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
