A Marine Corps Operation Iraqi Freedom war veteran, Yvonne traded in her combat boots for a career in live entertainment after graduating with an M.F.A. in Stage Design from the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University. Her passion for visual storytelling has led to a diverse array of work that has been seen across the country. As a member of Design Action, she is an advocate for uplifting more diversity behind the scenes for people of color, LGBTQA+, those with disabilities (herself included), pay transparency/equality, and adequate resources, support, and education that she hopes will foster in a change that sees theatre accessible to all as well as more stories that focus on POC's joy instead of their trauma.
