This East Texas native has a diverse career on stage, film and television. Upon graduating from the Booker T Washington High School of Performing & Visual Arts, Yolonda made her professional theatrical stage debut on the Norma Young Arena Stage at Theatre Three. Her most recognizable work is, ‘Robocop’ , ‘Friday Night Lights’ and the blues documentary ‘Can’t You Hear the Wind Howl: The Life and Music of Robert Johnson’, where she served as the film’s producer.
Yolonda’s contribution to Newsfix, earned CW33 an award with D Magazine as the Best TV News Broadcast of 2017. After leaving CW33 in 2018, Yolonda partnered with the Junior Players of Dallas, to launch an after-school Broadcast Journalism Program called Project Innovation, funded by the NBCUniversal Foundation.
