About Me

In just two years, AW has amassed tens of thousands of followers across social media platforms, thanks to a dynamic collection of of combined 500+ articles centered around celebrity profiles, relationships, love, abuse, motherhood, and Latino culture, infused with a signature blend of Yvette’s pragmatism and compassion.

Yvette’s words have also appeared on The Best Holistic Life Magazine, Thrive Global, media maven Arianna Huffington’s portal dedicated to ending the global stress and burnout epidemic, and Belatina News, where she profiles celebrities such as Camila Sodi, actress from Telemundo’s monster hit, Falsa Identidad, Nathalie Kelley, actress from ABC’s The Baker and the Beauty, Latin Grammy Award-winner Luis Fonsi and television actor, Joe Minoso.

Since 2020, as part of the AW Empowerment Series, Yvette has interviewed Amelia Moran Ceja, President, Ceja Vineyards, Kara Goldin, CEO and Founder, Hint Water & Author, WSJ Bestseller Undaunted,” Maria Trusa, CEO, Forme Medical Center, Shayla Rivera, former NASA Rocket Scientist and Comedian, Benita Alexander, Journalist, Julissa Prado, CEO, Rizos Curls, Nathalie Kelley, Actress, Alexa Ray, Canadian Recording Artist, Vanessa Coppes, CEO, Bella Magazine, Lois Robbins, Actress from TV Land’s hit show Younger, Lisa Vidal, Actress from Grey’s Anatomy, The Baker and the Beauty and BET’s Being Mary Jane, Nikki Boyer, Actress, 3-Time Emmy winning Media Personality and Host, Dying for Sex Podcast, as well as, Christina Vidal Mitchell, Actress, ABC’s United We Fall.

Her debut book, A Journey to Becoming the Best Self (Black Rose Writing)—part memoir and part prescriptive fiction, inspired by Yvette’s own post-divorce path from devastation to joy—was published in 2019, and received praise from The U.S. Review of Books. 

As a single mother based in New York City—a metropolis she credits for her open mind—Yvette regularly channels her own growth experiences. She has contributed to outlets like SmartCoparent and DivorceHub, authoring articles that focus on maintaining financial health through personal crises. Ultimately, Yvette’s writing, which seeks to empower and encourage women searching for personalized definitions of success, is an effort to build strong communities through vulnerable and powerful storytelling.
