When Yvonne was very young, she thought she was going to be a member of “The Archies” (Betty preferably…something about that tambourine, right?) or a member of the crew of the Jupiter ll bound for Alpha Centauri but…sadly “that did not compute.” Instead, she enrolled in Early Childhood and after three years as an Assistant Director at a small childcare facility in Northern Alberta, she found herself
moving south to build the “now extinct “ shoulder bag version of the cellular phone (remember that one?) for NovAtel Communications in Lethbridge. A brief stint as a Quality Systems Manager at a cable manufacturing company and an even briefer stint at a pretty awesome chiropractors office, found Yvonne with a few more skills but still not knowing what she wanted to be when she grew up.,An insistent sister-in-law encouraged a meeting between Yvonne and Gena Rotstein and the only thing she was missing was…a pretty awesome Office Assistant). The rest…is history!
