Yolanda Brown, MBA
I am excited to drive optimized outcomes in marketing and technology. Living in Durham, NC.
I partner with cross-functional teams to develop solutions that create meaningful outcomes that grow flourishing teams, companies, and communities.
I help business and community leaders create meaningful outcomes while they maintain peace, clarity and joy. I accomplish this by utilizing natural curiosity, a sense of justice and a warrior mentality to produce the strongest outcomes in support of the overall mission. Any work I do demonstrates love, integrity, knowledge, joy, and faith. Listening, empowerment, organization, and empathy are my keys to success in creating positive outcomes. This has helped me accomplish a lot including founding a company, leading several organizations and raising 2 amazing sons as a single parent. I want to help you create outstanding outcomes in support of your business objectives.
