With over 20 years of experience working in the not for profit sector and direct experience as executive director of Girls Incorporated of Durham for the past nine years, she has worked hard to be a strong advocate for girls and women issues.
This year their agency was recognized once again by the Fraser Institute as one of the top run not-for-profits in Canada. They were ranked in the top three in the Education category. Equally impressive is their achievement of the Girls Incorporated Standards of Excellence Award, a distinction held by only two other Girls Inc. affiliates.
During Yvette’s tenure, she has successfully contributed to empowering girls to become the agents of change for coming generations. Her volunteer work in a number of health areas is just a small sample of her commitment to being a community champion for change in our community. Her dedication and diligence has earned her the respect of her colleagues and peers, as she was nominated for the Women of Distinction
