Testimonials

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

I met Yolanda in 1989 when she read about my accomplishment of being named  the first African American female swimmer to win an NCAA Division I championship at Boston University, becoming the university’s only All-American in women’s swimming! She put me on the world’s stage at the time and introduced me to the sports community elite. She has continued to do the same for my daughter Sloane Stephens (Professional Tennis Player) whom she has followed since she was a teenager! Her ability to spot talented women athletes is uncanny!

Yolanda is known, valued and trusted by athletes, agents, sports industry experts and corporate executives.  Not only does she know hundreds of women athletes  in every sport, but she has made it possible for many of them to become household names!  Her ability to make the right connections is legendary. I have known her for over 20 years and her dedication to marketing and promoting athletes has never wavered.  I’m proud to call her a friend!
