Jonee Billy
Marketing Director

My Life's journey has been one of joy, sadness, laughter and tears. One of the aspects of my life that has proven to be the  most rewarding has been my involvement in sports. I have always been an active young woman and parleyed my skills on the basketball court for my academic, social and professional advancement. From a student-athlete at Mount Holyoke College, to a professional athlete in Szombathely, Hungary, to proudly representing Trinidad & Tobago in international competitions, I have proven to be a tenacious and dynamic team player with an innate sense of determination and dedication to excel. 

My ultimate goal is to take the knowledge and skills sets that I have honed over the years and transfer it toward the business end of the sports industry. I know that once my playing days come to a halt, I would love to continue a career managing athletes' careers. Having an up close and personal understanding of the things that professional athletes endure on a daily level, especially women in sports, I feel duty bound to at the very least attempt to enact some change. The Sports and Entertainment industry continues to expand and people all around the world are engrossed in this manifestation. A lot has been done but there are many more hurdles to cross and I would love nothing more than to help these athletes achieve their goals as well.
