She participated in the 2009 Presidential Inauguration in Washington DC, assisted in the training of the report writing system and records management system and proudly represents the San Antonio Police Departments Honor Guard Detail.
Yvonne has a passion for health and fitness and teaches many fitness classes outside of her law enforcement career. Her passion for health and fitness has led her to open her own fitness studio. She is a fitness instructor with several certifications and enjoys inspiring others to live a healthy lifestyle.
“I have continuously aspired to advance in all aspects of my life, both personal and professional. Upon joining the police department, I had my struggles as a single mother but would not allow adversity to get in my way of fulfilling a life-long dream. I began a venture as a part time fitness instructor shortly after joining SAPD because of my passion to help others. I have helped countless friends aspire to live a healthier lifestyle and will cherish every moment that I have helped someone reach their goals. My law enforcement career has also had a series of special achievements and proud moments. I always attempted to help the less fortunate and treated the worst of the worst with respect. These philosophies have led me to be a successful police officer, fitness instructor and mother.”
