I'm just starting out on keppra for my epileptic seizures. Does it interfere with yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) being effective in preventing pregnancies?

In brief: No.

Keppra is metabolized by the kidneys, whereas yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) (and most oral contraceptive pills) are metabolized by the liver. Keppra is one of the best choices for seizure treatment in anyone taking other medications because it has a lower likelihood of drug interactions.
