Born and raised in Burnaby, Yvonne is happy to be back home in BC. Before joining the Global BC team, Yvonne spent more than 5 years working in both Toronto and Calgary. She has reported on weather all over the country, including her most recent roles on CityNews and the Weather Network in Toronto.
With a strong background in hosting, producing, and reporting on shows ranging from entertainment news magazines to local newscasts, Yvonne realized that broadcasting was her passion while she studied Communications at Simon Fraser University. Her energetic personality took her to Toronto shortly after graduation, where she took her first on-air position as an entertainment reporter and producer at Rogers TV Peel Region. Yvonne then moved to Calgary where she became a producer at a local production company, and later held host and producer roles for a local arts and entertainment show on Shaw TV Calgary where she also began weather forecasting for Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
Off the air, Yvonne enjoys travelling, running, skiing and golfing. She also speaks Cantonese and Swiss German.
