Was inspired to become an actress in the third grade after hearing a classmate do a dramatic reading of Nikki Giovanni's poem "Ego-Tripping." Her parents are co-pastors of Anacostia's Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ and are public advocates for LGBTQ rights and same-sex marriage. Met Orange Is The New Black co-star Danielle Brooks when both were students at The Juilliard School. Has done charitable work with the Woman's Prison Association packing back-to-school backpacks for young women returning to society after incarceration. Met script writer wife Lauren Morelli when they both worked on Orange Is The New Black. Morelli subsequently came out of the closet and divorced her husband to be with Wiley.
