Yvonne deSousa has worked as a street sweeper, a shell seller, a babysitter, a candy peddler, and a guest house manager, all before the age of sixteen. Later on she worked as a waitress, sales clerk, library assistant, victim’s advocate, and at the front desk of a doctor’s office.
Two years before Yvonne’s diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, a relative volunteered her to write an article for a local newspaper. Little did she know it was the beginning of a writing career. When MS threatened to turn her into a lunatic, she started writing more frequently, eventually publishing her work in newspapers, an online digest, and in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Finding My Faith. She writes a regular blog on www.yvonnedesousa.com and presents programs designed to help others use humor to help cope with chronic illness.
Yvonne enjoys writing, laughing, and resting.
