Excited to have several new projects in development as the Creative Director of tteeVy enterprises, Yvette works as an award winning actor, writer, historical re-enactment consultant, acting coach, festival adjudicator, and director. Writing to channel for her creative fervour between acting gigs, Yvette’s passion for words has bourgeoned into songs, poems, short films (Edna Brown, Laundry Day), twenty-nine historical re-enactment scripts, and plays (Detention Divas, Christmas Crackers, The F Words, Titillations). Her play, The F Words which won Honourable Mention in the 2014 Theatre BC Play Writing Competition is a 4/5 star, fierce, funny and fearless multi-character solo show.
