My name is Yolonda, I am also known as Amaya Papaya’s mom!

I am a thinker, dreamer, and doer. It is my mission to create PlaySpace Solutions for the global community through the creation of independently-owned public spaces, corporate collaborative spaces, urban buildings and private family gathering spaces. With over twenty years of professional experience in corporate America, non-profit organizations, independent business ownership, volunteering and motherhood, I bring real-life experience to my clients’ endeavors. Let me inspire you! PLAY is important. A PLACE to PLAY is essential.

In 2009 I left the workforce as an employee to become an entrepreneur. I created and, for ten years, have owned and operated Amaya Papaya, an indoor PlaySpace for children 0-5 years old. In the past ten years, I have turned my PlaySpace into an award-winning business. I have received several awards from various publications since 2010 as “The Best Indoor Playground” and “The Best Party Venue.” In 2018, I was awarded “Business of the Year: Sole Proprietor” for Seminole County, Florida. I am also the creative visionary of Bomb Mom Movement, a motivational and lifestyle brand for mothers.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Bethune Cookman University. After graduating from college, I began my career as a Health Educator and Program Coordinator working for Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando. I then continued my career in non-profit community work by working as a Counselor and Program Coordinator at PACE Center for Girls in Orlando, Florida. Over the years, I have created and executed a multitude of programs that have helped to net a profit in my business as well as for Planned Parenthood and PACE Center for Girls. I am ready to help you expand upon your creative ideas to create an appropriate PlaySpace Solution for your business, corporate space, urban building or home.
Let's get started!

I completed a 2-hour consultation with Ms. Yolanda and had 4 pages of actionable ideas. Before my consultation we had booked 4 parties in 11 months. In the 2 weeks after my consultation we booked 5 parties. Now 6 months later we're booking back-to-back parties and regularly have to turn down party business. This is just one example! Ms. Yolanda is very personable, extremely knowledgeable about the indoor playspace business and her consultations are fluff-free. I've referred several business owners to her and will continue to do so. Schedule your will not be disappointed!

Yolanda used her expertise to design an incredible playroom our entire family loves. She turned a boring room into a stimulating play space while staying within our budget. Would highly recommend her services!
