Testimonials

Hear what some of the world’s top athletes, media personalities and sports business people have to say about working with Yolanda.

Yo has always been synonymous with advocating for female athletes in sports. From knowing just about every elite female athlete in the nation, to forging relationships with up and coming athletes, to advocating for the rights of young female athletes to participate in sports, Yo has been this wonderful presence in the women’s sporting community for the last two decades. I am forever grateful for her ability to connect us all in such a positive way.

Passion for sports is the foundation for Yolanda’s longevity in the sports industry, yet it is her ability to bring people together and create that ‘moment’….for the athlete, for the sponsor, for the fan, that has made her a success.   Yolanda’s experience brings depth to any interaction and is a powerful force for change, in the individual lives of the athletes and sports at-large. I have watched Yolanda work with a young athlete: create the platform, guide the opportunity and then knowingly smile as the light bulb flashes for the athlete and this young woman has attained a whole new level of maturity.  I have witnessed the positive impact of Yolanda’s hand in the WTA, the Women’s Sports Foundation and expect the ripple-effect to continue.
