Athletes to Watch
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 Jackson is a true professional. I’ve had the great fortune to work with her over the past 17 years with respect to athlete services. She earns respect from everyone in the business with whom she has worked.
