Yvonne Ortega – Arise Speakers

Yvonne Ortega speaks with honesty and humor as she shares her life and struggles through
presentations that help women find comfort, peace, and purpose. Her background as a licensed
professional counselor gives her a unique perspective into the heart of women. Her counseling
experiences in jails, prisons, and outpatient services add depth and humor to her presentations, as do
her years of teaching mostly high school and college Spanish. Her presentations are interactive and
down-to- earth with application for the audience from God’s Word and his promises.
For Yvonne, hope and healing are more than theories from a textbook. She has survived and thrived
after breast cancer, divorce, single parenting, car accidents, and multiple family losses within seven
months of one another including the loss of her only child.
Yvonne is also a speaking and writing coach and the owner of Moving from Broken to Beautiful®,
LLC. She is the author of four books: Finding Hope for Your Journey through Breast Cancer, Moving
from Broken to Beautiful: 9 Life Lessons to Help You Move Forward, Moving from Broken to
Beautiful® through Forgiveness, and Moving from Broken to Beautiful® through Grief.
Based in Virginia, Yvonne holds an undergraduate degree in Spanish and English, a Master of Arts in
Teaching with a Specialization in Spanish from Alliant University in San Diego, California, and a
Master of Education in Counseling from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Yvonne is a member of the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association (AWSA), the Christian
Author Network (CAN), the National Speakers Association (NSA), and Toastmasters International.
She is a former Regional Speaker Trainer of Virginia for Stonecroft Ministries and served in Kairos
Prison Ministry. Yvonne has taught Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, and Precept Bible studies.
She also served as a children’s leader in Bible Study Fellowship.
In her free time, Yvonne loves to go to the beach, walk barefooted in the sand, and listen to the
waves. As she walks at the beach or in the neighborhood, she reviews Bible verses. She also likes to
read and travel.
