Yvonne is a dedicated social worker and activist. She has twenty-five years of experience bringing people together to make our communities a better place to live. As a Community Development specialist, with a master’s degree in Social Work, Yvonne supports vulnerable people in our community. She currently assists young people working with the York Region District School Board as a Community and Partnership Developer. And she helps children and families succeed as the founder and co-director of the Step and Blended Family Institute, a private practice focused on counselling and education.

Yvonne understands it’s time for Ottawa to start working for you. She has seen successive Liberal and Conservative governments cut services everyday people relied on. After years of cuts and inaction, she knows Canada’s pandemic recovery needs to work for everyday people -- not the ultra-rich. Yvonne will fight for a sustainable recovery that delivers good jobs that pay a livable wage and bold emission targets to combat the climate crisis.

Yvonne believes that no one should have to choose between getting the health care they need and putting food on their table. That’s why she’s committed to making our health care system truly universal, so everyone can access dental care, mental health services, and their prescription medication with their health card – not their credit card.

Canada’s housing crisis is hurting families in our community and pushing people into vulnerable housing situations. Yvonne knows everyone should be able to live with dignity and have a safe place to call home. As a founder of the Affordable Housing Coalition of York Region, Yvonne has fought for investments in affordable housing, and she’s ready to bring that same dedication to Ottawa.

Yvonne has always found new ways to help people in Newmarket–Aurora. She has worked with the York Region Food Network, the Social Planning Council of York Region, and has served as the Chair of the Social Planning Network of Ontario. She is an active member of OSSTF D16 Bargaining Unit for the Professional Student Services Personnel.And she is the co-author of York Region’s first Social Audit, which examined the struggles faced by low-income families.

Yvonne is a mother to three sons with her husband Rick, and stepmother to Rick’s two daughters. As a parent and grandparent, Yvonne is committed to building a fair and inclusive Canada that we can be proud to leave to the next generation. Yvonne believes better is possible and she is ready to make sure Ottawa is working for Newmarket–Aurora.
