More About Me

(the back story)

This isn’t the gorgeous flowy section about my why, passion or my vision. Click the “Yvette’s Juicy Story” button below for that.

I decided to have a baby while I was working for a badass record label (well it was at the time), producing tv and radio commercials .  The late studio hours, constant pressure to be on the cutting edge within limits,  egos and drama wasn’t serving my soul.  I was a newlywed and wanted to break the cycle of divorce and trauma in my life.  The music business that I saw was filled with wealth and dysfunctional relationships so I took maternity leave and never returned.

This LEAP changed the course of my life FOREVER! I got the itch rather quickly to start learning new skills because I’m a unicorn, of course.

Due to the nature of my curiosity genes, I’m a perpetual learner. However, through my deep spiritual work with my coaches, I have taken ownership of my powerful being and heart which is where the most magnificent power lies in all of us.

Below are the certifications and coursework that I still use and am most proud of:
