Owner & Designer
Hi, I’m Yvette!
I'm passionate about partnering with like-minded, savvy business owners who are ready to make a dent in the world. I offer starter brands, web design, and business mentoring to creative entrepreneurs and small businesses who need help clarifying their vision and want beautiful, cohesive online visuals to match the quality of their services and products.
An entrepreneur at heart, I've built several businesses from the ground up, including a beauty business I sold in 2017.
After working 15 years in traditional settings of non-profits and arts administration, I realized my dream of business ownership in 2014 with the co-founding of Miel Beauty Bar.
Running this business day-to-day made me realize what I loved more than anything else was designing its visual identity and website. I often thought about what it would be like to support other passionate business owners who've perfected their craft but need help in the creative and technical areas that I love. When the time came to sell my business, I honored my long-held dream and founded Water + Sky with a talented designer, friend, and inspiration, Jess Rogan.
After a year of rewarding collaboration, our partnership faced a crossroads. Jess answered the call and pursue a new career direction and embarked on an extended adventure in her Airstream. I decided to forge ahead with Water + Sky and continue helping clients with the skills I have today.
An Ithaca, NY native, I was was born in Lima, Peru. I live in lovely Brooktondale, NY with my husband, Lars, and our 9-year-old twins, Adrian and Isla. I'm a coffee-loving INFJ who enjoys long walks, playing Just Dance with my kids, and harmony singing. I received a BA in Psychology from the New School for Public Engagement in NYC.
