Yvonne graduated from the University of Dayton School of Law in Ohio with a Personal and Transactional Law degree. Before she went to Dayton School of Law, Yvonne attended Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pennsylvania studying criminal justice and pre-law. She graduated in 2011. While in law school, Yvonne worked as a clerk for a criminal defense firm. She completed an externship at the Erie County Court of Common Pleas and also volunteered as a CASA Guardian ad Litem. Now she focuses on social security law with the Jan Dils team since June of 2011. Prior to law school, Yvonne worked in social services working with individuals who lived independently in the community but needed assistance with medication, appointments, and other daily living. She also has prior experience working in a treatment center for juvenile girls and in behavioral intervention with children needing therapeutic support while attending school. Having a background in social services influenced her decision to go to law school to continue to advocate for individuals during times of need. Yvonne felt that she would be able to make a bigger impact by practicing law than staying in a social services related career. Yvonne is apart of the Phi Alpha Delta, Ohio Bar Association, and Dayton Bar Association. When Yvonne is not working, she enjoys spending time with her daughter, family, and friends. She also loves to travel, read, and experience new things.
