Before embarking on her legal career, Yvette graduated from McGill University with a B.A. in Psychology. Thereafter, she completed her Civil Law degree (LL.B) at the University of Montreal. She later articled and became an associate at one of Montreal’s boutique international family law firms. She decided to further her legal studies at the University of Ottawa where she obtained her Common Law degree (J.D.).
