Meet the Team:
Founder, Executive Director / CEO & Lead Instructor
After a 15+ year career in the NBA, including serving as the Phoenix Suns’ Director of Entertainment & Special Events, NBA Entertainment’s Director of Live Programming & Entertainment, and helping to start the WNBA with the Phoenix Mercury, Felisa started her own live event production company, 10 Fold Entertainment.
Guided by a passion for creating memorable live moments and a philosophy of doing everything tenfold, Felisa and her team have partnered with some of the biggest names in Sports, Entertainment, and Media to produce a variety of successful events using their unique blend of expertise to excite audiences and exceed expectations at every stop. After leaving the NBA, Felisa wanted to make an impact beyond the world of sports. She has since worked with charities such as Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Straight But Not Narrow to produce fundraising and awareness events, moderated and participated in panels with industry experts to help further positive and creative discussions, and built a strong relationship with the UCLA Anderson School of Management, teaching students, hiring and training interns, and influencing the next generation of rockstars in their fields.
Through her experience hiring interns from, and teaching at, UCLA Anderson School of Management, Felisa saw an opportunity to create her own program to further help students, IMPACT Learning Institute. IMPACT Learning Institute is a professional development program that provides education, mentorship, training, and experiential learning opportunities to college students and recent graduates who aspire to have careers in the Sports, Entertainment, and Media industries. Now, Felisa uses her career experiences, unparalleled network of professional relationships, and passion for helping the next generation to give young professionals opportunities to jumpstart their careers in these highly-competitive industries and teach them the skills necessary to thrive in any work environment.
