Yvette grew up in Bakersfield California and later moved to Sylmar California in the San Fernando Valley area where she graduated from Sylmar High School. After graduation she moved back to Bakersfield to live with her dad. Not too long after moving back to her home, she and her dad backpacked the entire Pacific Crest Trail, starting from their home, all the way to the Canadian border approximately two thousand miles. From there they hitchhiked up to Alaska, where they eventually arrived in Anchorage. Yvette’s father returned home and left Yvette there to make her own way, which she knew how to do. She got a job at the Skippers Seafood restaurant and later completed her CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant).
Yvette met her husband Eugene Vice, while working as a CNA in Anchorage Alaska.
She moved to Pinetop in 2005 where she took care of her Step-father until he passed on. After her step-father passed away, she started caring for her Uncle Lloyd who was living in Pinetop.
