Yvette was born on April 6th in Junction City, Kansas. She has one older sister and two older living brothers. Her youngest brother passed away in 1996. Yvette was raised in Denver, Colorado by her mother and grandmother. Her father and mother divorced when she was a child. Yvette's mother worked for the State of Colorado as a Program Director and was a licensed Psychiatric nurse.

Yvette was not one to play with dolls.  She always wanted to play with her younger brother and his friends. Instead of wanting girly toys, she wanted trucks and robots; an all around tomboy. Growing up her hobbies included drawing, dancing, roller-skating, tennis, gymnastics, track and field, and reading.

She is an animal lover and grew up with various kinds of dogs, rabbits, birds and whatever else her younger brother brought home. She loves dancing and always wanted to be a dancer on the TV dance show Soul Train. She grew up listening to old school R&B but also loves Jazz, Hip Hop and Reggae. Yvette enjoys different kinds of ethnic foods, meeting people and learning about their different cultures.

Yvette recognized her talent for art and drawing in the early years... when she was in the 4th grade she began drawing cartoon characters like Peanuts and also drawing kids in her classroom. Yvette started drawing and sewing clothes for her family members and after graduating High School she attended the Colorado Institute of Art for Fashion Illustration.

Before Yvette took an interest in weight training over 15 years ago, she weighed 100 lbs. soaking wet. She always wanted to be a fashion designer and model and was very conscious about her weight. After seeing Carla Dunlap and Cory Everson on stage in a magazine, Yvette set her sites on wanting to attain a sexy, muscular physique - so off to the gym she went and after lifting her first dumbbell, she was hooked on the sport of bodybuilding!

Yvette served in the US Air Force for 13 1/2 years and has competed and won several military and local bodybuilding shows. She has been stationed in California, Korea, Guam, Okinawa, Japan and Hawaii. While in the service she received an Associates Degree in Logistics Management from the University of Maryland.

Yvette's first bodybuilding show was held in Seoul, Korea where she was stationed and she went in as a lightweight weighing in at 110 lbs and won the lightweight and overall title. The hardest task for Yvette since aspiring to become a female bodybuilder was having to eat more food. A task that she soon leaned to defeat!  Next
she was Ms. Far East for two years in a row, also taking the Best Poser award both times in Okinawa, Japan. She took second in the Women's Lightweight Division at Guam's National Bodybuilding Championship; 1st place winner in the Women's Lightweight Division and 2nd place in the Mixed Pairs Division in the 1997 Marjo Selin's Muscle Classic in Maui, Hawaii. 1997 Hawaii Armed Forces Lightweight Division and Overall Winner also Best Poser on Oahu, Hawaii. 1999 Designer Body Muscle & Physique State Championship; Women's Open Bodybuilding Division, Overall Winner; 3rd place in the Women's Middle Weight at the 1999 Paradise Cup on Oahu, Hawaii.
