I’m a twin. I have an older sister, Pamela. She was in charge of keeping track of Yvonne and me. One day, when we were about four-years-old, we were out shopping. Pamela, looked around and said, “Ma, the twins are lost again!”
My mother set off to find us—we could have been anywhere! But this was a reoccurring event, and true to form, when my mother finally found us, we were happily talking to a stranger. My mother greeted the stranger, politely answered all the twin questions and ushered us away. When we were alone, my mother said, “Yvonne & Yvette, didn’t I tell you not to talk to strangers?”
We responded: “But mommy, they're not a stranger. They told us their name!”
For as long as I can remember, I have loved people. My love of people never meets a stranger. It meets people exactly where they are.
Additionally, I have been aware of my intuitive connection since I was a child. People, indeed complete strangers, have always opened their hearts and shared stories with me. As a teenager, my experience through dance and expressive arts allowed me to “tune-in” and cultivate a rich language of relevant metaphors to translate the internal insights and messages I was receiving. Life continues to provide me with opportunities to practice and hone my skills as an anchor of consciousness for our planet through divine guidance and sacred alchemy!
I have a multifaceted background in business, education, nonprofits and the creative arts. In addition to my work as a trainer and facilitator with World Trust, I am the co-founder and director of several companies including Peer Solutions, an educational consulting firm and Creative Authors of Shared Humanity, a nonprofit and performing arts consulting firm. I have led many workshops and seminars in anti-racism training, restorative justice, mediation, professional development and workplace efficacy. An avid practitioner of transformational deep change work, I am a graduate of the Center for Creative Learning and have over 25 years of experience in a wide array of professional and indigenous transformative processes. I am a spoken word artist, theatre performer, co-founder and “Connector” of Playback Milwaukee Theatre Company, and I practice First Nations and West African indigenous ceremony and ritual in my life and my restorative justice work with students in schools and community centers.
