She was a high school All-American and the Mississippi Gatorade High School Player of the Year and despite becoming a teen mom her freshman year of college and having three knee surgeries during her college playing career, Yolanda was able to realize her dream of becoming a professional athlete just four months after giving birth to her second child at the age of 22. 

Her relentless will to have a life outside of the farm she grew up on in Mississippi is what propelled her to become a two-time WNBA Champion and head women's college basketball coach at the JUCO, Division I & II levels. In her coaching career, Yolanda has taken two teams from last place in their conferences to conference champions. In 2018, as head women's basketball coach at Clark Atlanta University, Yolanda was named the 2018 Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year after taking her team from "worst to first" winning both the SIAC Eastern Division Championship and the SIAC Conference Tournament Championship which earned the Lady Panthers a spot in the Division II Women's NCAA Tournament a feat they hadn't accomplished in over five years.
