Sloan Production Award and was executive produced by CAVIAR (The Rider, Sound of Metal, War Pony). Her next short, SWEETWATER AQUARIUM, is currently in post-production.

Yvonne completed her MFA in Directing at the American Film Institute where she was selected as a BAFTA US Scholar for two years running and was awarded the AFI David Geffen Fellowship, Fulbright Scholarship, P.E.O. International Peace Scholarship and AAUW Fellowship.
