Meet The Team: Yer Wrate
Yer Wrate is our Brand Manager.
She was born and raised in sunny California. Her family lived in Santa Barbara until she was age 3. Her parents moved the family to Merced and then finally settled in Fresno. She attended Roosevelt High School and Fresno City College, where she met her husband, Abel Wrate. Soon after receiving her Associates of Liberal Arts, she transferred to Fresno State University for a year before moving to Phoenix, AZ. There, Yer attended and graduated from Arizona State University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. She taught for a few years but decided to go in another direction.
Eventually, her husband’s career brought them to Washington State and now resides in Aloha, Oregon with her three children, ages 12, 2, and 1. When Yer is not working on the Story Cloth Shop, you can find her spending time with her little family, thrifting for clothing, filming a video for YouTube, and enjoying a good book.
