What People Are Saying

Praise for IMPACT

“My expectations were exceeded. I was very leery to spend the money without knowing what we would get. From the work experience my son received, to the responsibilities he had there, to the fabulous guest speakers and one-on-one contact with them, to Felisa actually picking my son up at the airport and making sure he was settled, it truly was an amazing experience from start to finish.”

“I had a few preconceived ideas and expectations, but I was completely mind blown by what was thrown my way. From the high caliber guest speakers, to our experiential learning projects being paired with trained professionals to better our knowledge and practices within the industry. I was skeptical going into the program, but my expectations were completely exceeded. I learned so much as well as talked to so many professionals.”

– Noah Philpott, Sonoma State University

“My experience with IMPACT was way more than I could have ever expected and my expectations were definitely met. I was excited to be selected to the program and knew the type of people I would be exposed to but had no idea just how meaningful the experience was going to be. Right off the bat after the first day I knew it was a special program with the investment and energy put forth by everyone to bring together such awesome speakers in a very organized and entertaining format. It’s definitely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

– Farzad-Elhaam Kohzad, Seton Hall University MBA

“IMPACT was invaluable to my professional career. Through the program, I was able to intern at Wasserman, one of the top sports agencies in the world, and gain real world sports business experience. I was able to make great connections through the program and internship, leading to follow up opportunities after the summer like assisting Wasserman at NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago this year. IMPACT not only gave me a leg up and a foot in the door, but it also helped me to become a professional in the business workplace as well. I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience and would recommend IMPACT to anyone serious about jump starting their career.”

– Isaac Dubofsky, Indiana University

“What a time to be alive!

As a senior at Pepperdine I was gearing up for my last few weeks of college, ready for the exciting transition from student to “real adult” when COVID shut everything down. My classes transitioned to online learning. I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to most of my friends and the plans I had for my professional career screeched to a halt.

That’s when Felisa, Lexie, Nathan, and their IMPACT program swooped in and saved me. This last summer I had the most amazing experience. Felisa and her team have introduced me to so many high level experts in the sports and entertainment world and taught me so much about the business. Their knowledge and insight has helped mold my thinking and strengthen my abilities as a rookie in the workforce. This opportunity has opened so many doors and avenues for me and I’m extremely excited to continue to work with them to become the best worker, fan, and person that I can be! Thank you, IMPACT!!!”

– Sabrina Socquet, Pepperdine University

“Hi Felisa, I know it’s been awhile but I have a good life update! As of today, I’ve accepted a position with the Los Angeles Clippers for their Sales team! I’ll be doing inside sales and I also wanted to send you this to thank you. I am forever indebted to you for not only pushing me to be better but to be more confident, vocal and to express myself to the best of my abilities.”
– Nehemiah Allen, Fresno Pacific University MBA
“I just wanted to give an exciting update. I was offered the position of post-graduate intern for championship event marketing with the NCAA! This summer was such a huge reason I got this opportunity so thank you for everything!”
– Caroline Altman, Goucher College

The Pros

“I’ve had the pleasure of speaking in Felisa’s classes for the last three years and my time spent with her students is always memorable. Helping to open their eyes and their minds to the possibilities in entertainment and in general, the career options they can explore, is incredibly rewarding. I was lucky enough at an early age to gain insight and wisdom from mentors, Felisa being one of them, that ultimately helped shape who I am today as a leader, to pay that forward is something I am honored and humbled by.”

– Libby Bush, Tandem Entertainment

“I am so proud of Felisa and her team for creating IMPACT Learning Institute because it does so much to better the lives of young people. They get a chance to really see first-hand what it’s like to be involved in a sports organization, and to be able to do that at such a young age is completely indispensable, incredibly valuable, and I would recommend it to anyone.”

– Leonard Armato, Founder, Chairman & CEO at Management Plus Enterprises; Former Sports Agent (represented star athletes such as Shaquille O’Neal, Hakeem Olajuwon, Oscar De La Hoya, Kerri Walsh-Jennings, and Lisa Leslie)
