Rebecca graduated from Malone College in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Youth Ministry. She started writing & illustrating in 2013, about her dog Pookie, when she wanted a fun and wholesome story for her nieces and nephews, some of whom
were learning to read. She plans to keep up her series and write others. Along with this venture, she wanted to make her Adventures of Pookie series into a cartoon. So in 2015, she started attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and 16 months later, she was certified in 2D Animation.
Along with The Adventures of Pookie children’s book series, she is a Lifestyle blogger at The Glamping Housewife and author of the personal development book The Creative Minds Guide to Success. She travels full time in a 5th wheel RV with her husband Eric, and two dogs, Pookie & Thor, for his job as a Journeyman Lineman and writes about their adventures along the way.
In January of 2019, she started a publishing and entertainment company, The Adventures of Pookie LLC. The goal of The Adventures of Pookie LLC is to encourage children to pursue their love of art and nurture it, as well as offer wholesome entertainment for children.
The inspiration to do Mission Fat Hearts was created after seeing how much the world needs kindness now more than ever. Created by an elementary school teacher, Mandy, and inspired by her kids, Mission Fat Hearts caught the eye and heart of author Rebecca Yee. Working together, Mandy and Rebecca have turned Mission Fat Hearts into an inspirational project with hopes of teaching kids to put others first and treat people kindly.
After a tremendous response to the book, Rebecca decided to turn it into an animated movie to help spread the mission as far and wide as possible. The film is currently in production and is set to release in December of 2020.
