Hi, my name is Yvette Bates, born and raised in Bay City, MI. I moved to Roscommon/Grayling area in June of 1996, where my husband, Dave, and I raised our 4 children.
I was transferred to the area when I was District Manager for PCA, Photo Company of America, aka Kmart and Walmart portrait studios. My job description was to oversee 11 districts and 30 employees. I did the hiring and dismissing of employees, training personnel, inventory of studio supplies as well as customers photos. Another part of my job responsibility included doing weekly schedules, attending bi-yearly conferences, and Christmas celebrations after the busy season.
After 5 years, I decided to go into the medical field where I became a CENA and worked in the Home Health field for 15 years. For the past 6 years, I was a Medical Assistant for Ankle and Foot Associates, local foot surgeons in Roscommon.
May 14, 2022, I began as the In-Home Service Coordinator with the Agency. I am excited and looking forward to being a part of RCCOA’s future!!
