Yolanda “Yoli” Melton

Fit, Black, and Educated Inc.
Social Media Manager
San Diego, California

Yoli holds an associate degree in Liberal Arts from San Diego City College, and a bachelor’s degree in Strategic Communications from National University.  She is a U.S. Navy veteran, having served her country as a Machinist’s Mate for four years.  Her day job is a Quality Assurance Specialist for the Department of the Navy.

​Yoli’s association with FBE began when she hit a plateau in her fitness journey around September 2018.  Meeting personal trainers Mars Herring and Stanley Williams took her journey to another level and over time, personal and professional relationships have grown amongst the three.  She is dedicated to helping create a positive culture around Black fitness and education by promoting the FBE brand and building a community of like-minded people.  Additionally, she participates in at least one 5K every month, so when she isn’t monitoring FBE’s social pages, you can catch her at somebody’s finish line.
