Yvonne enjoys carefully selecting high quality products, and marketing current events for the Chess Made Fun community. Yvonne learned the amazing game of chess in 2009. In the Spring of 2010, she attended a F.I.D.E. International training seminar, and obtained the title of Developmental Instructor. Yvonne then began teaching chess in after-school programs and summer camps in Atlanta. From there she also volunteered with a hospice company teaching and playing chess with senior players. It was not until she began teaching chess that, she started to enjoy the full value of chess, and what the game has to offer to children and families.
As the acting CFO for Chess Made Fun, LLC, Warren helps the company evaluate growth opportunities and funding sources to help share chess with the community. Warren began learning the wonderful game of chess at the Atlanta Chess Center, in 2008. The Atlanta Chess Center was not only a great way to socialize, but also offered a much-needed affordable source of entertainment. Soon after, Warren was getting to know his then girlfriend Yvonne, and decided to introduce her to the game of chess. Chess soon became their favorite pastime. They enjoy exploring the outdoors and always have a chessboard with them. Warren continues to work with Yvonne together to share chess with the community.
