Yakima Deloatch knows loss.

Both of parents passed away at relatively young ages after battling illnesses—then she was diagnosed with breast cancer in her early 30s. But Yakima’s story isn’t about tragedy.

And, perhaps most significant, Yakima found a career path that literally helped her heal her body and spirit.
