Next Up: Bones!

It’s been nearly a month since Yvonne last posted here. What the heck has she been doing in the meantime?

There’s been a lot of behind the scenes action.

  • Checking out a possible research site.
  • Designing an online short course in Bone Search and Recovery.
  • Developing her personal website (
  • Dealing with Imposter Syndrome.
  • Redecorating her home office (and swearing at IKEA’s Click & Collect) as a symbol of re-designing her life the way she wants it.
  • Figuring out how the hell to shift from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset.

Yeah. It’s been quite a month.

The good news is that the Bone Search and Recovery short course is nearly ready, and once Yvonne manages to closet her Imposter Syndrome long enough, she’ll release it.

What’s the online Bone Search and Recovery short course about, you ask?

When law enforcement requests assistance to search for a missing person or the remains of a missing person in an outdoor context, often those answering that request are volunteer civilians. In addition, even if searchers aren’t volunteers or civilians, very often searchers aren’t trained in how to search for bone. Despite the best efforts of these amazing people, items of potential forensic evidence may be missed because they aren’t trained in searching for bone.

With this short course, Yvonne hopes to help address this issue.

Yvonne used to provide presentations and workshops about searching for bone to volunteer Search and Rescue groups and law enforcement. This Bone Search and Recovery short course is based on that work. It also includes some of her original research on scattered remains.

There’s a lot more that can be done to increase awareness and training on this topic. This short course is a start.

The online Bone Search and Recovery short course will be coming soon to a webpage near you.

Stay tuned!
