She received her Master of Fine Arts from Western University and her Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours from York University.

Yoo's work has been exhibited throughout Ontario as well as internationally at venues such as: JOUEZ at the BIG on Bloor Festival for Arts and Culture! (Toronto), Koffler Gallery (Toronto), John B. Aird Gallery (Toronto), Arko Art Gallery (Seoul, South Korea),the University of Waterloo Art Gallery (Waterloo), Art Lab Gallery (London), The Art Gallery of Peterborough (Peterborough), and CONTACT Photography Festival (Toronto).
