Meet Yvonne

Yvonne has a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Fashion Merchandising and Business from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Yvonne may have many years of experience as a Director of Operations in the manufacturing industry but the most remarkable trait you’ll notice when you meet her, is she’s kind and beautiful soul.
Yvonne brings so much love and compassion to everyone she meets not only within UMTR2ME but in her everyday life.

Yvonne shares first hand from her penned account, My Tamed Monster,” not only how difficult it can be at times to be the sole supporter of someone one struggling with mental illness but how wonderful the rewards can be if one never refuses to give up fighting.

Yvonne loves spending her time with her two Main Coons, Louis and Sebastian.  She has recently taking up cycling and competed in her second duathlon and is entertaining an attempt at her first half-marathon.   When she’s not on her bike she can be found doing other physical activities like running, hiking or Stand up paddle boarding.  She also enjoys the physical and mental rewards she receives through a lifestyle of healthy vegan and plant based eating.

If you’re interested in learning about ways you can become involved with UMTR2ME and make an impact in your local community Yvonne wants to hear from you so send her email at: yvonne@umtr2me.org
