Ashley Keber, Vice President Member Relations, Women’s Tennis Assocation

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.
