Leadership Team

Amber White


Amber has been a part of the Yakabod team for the past 10 years and she is a finance guru, overseeing Yakabod’s operational accounting and financial reporting.  Not only did she graduate from Southern Methodist University (SMU) with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degrees in Marketing and Organizational Business Behavior Policy, but she was also a 4-year member of the women’s golf team.   After graduating from SMU, she worked as an Assistant Event Director for 3 years, organizing amateur golf events across the United States.  She then continued her education at Ohio University receiving a Master’s in Business Administration and a Master’s in Sports Administration.   She moved to the DC area and took a position with the Washington Freedom, DC’s first Women’s Professional Soccer Team, as the Deputy Director of Finance and Operations.  From there she transitioned into accounting for the government sector.  If she isn’t crunching numbers for Yakabod, you might catch her cheering at her daughter’s field hockey game or volunteering for the Mid-Maryland Girls on the Run nonprofit.
