Yve grew up in Montana where spending time in the outdoors was a big part of spending time with her family. It was the first place she ever really felt like herself and has been a personal foundation for her ever since.
She attended the University of Montana in Missoula and received a degree in Environmental Studies, focusing on water resources. Throughout college and after graduation she worked a variety of seasonal jobs, usually focused on field science. Before purchasing the business she worked in the Watershed Program at the US Forest Service as a hydrologic technician.
She met her husband in Choteau and they have two little boys and one weird, old Border Collie. Spending time outside continues to be a priority and they enjoy being able to live in a place with so much access and activities given the different seasons.
The landscape and everything that that means is like a member of her family. She has enjoyed growing up in this place and becoming more intimate with it as her years and role in life unfolds. She looks forward to learning this landscape more dearly and sharing that experience with others.
