My name is Yancy Yeater, and I live in Pittsburgh, PA. Originally, I am from Cameron, WV, which is a town of little consequence in the world. The people work hard and are proud, which are traits I have brought along me as an adult. I did my undergrad at West Liberty University in Communications. I was lucky enough to be heavily involved with the school while attending. I worked as an assistant Sports Information Director and proudly served as the voice of the Hilltoppers Football and Lady Hilltoppers Women’s Basketball team for the student radio station, WGLZ. Education is important to me. I earned my Masters Degree online from Quinnipiac University in Interactive Media. I’ve never been to Quinnipiac, but the pictures look nice. In my free time, I dabble with my love of sports logos with my Instagram account called SportsLogoDaily.

Professionally, I have traveled full circle. My first job out of college, I was hired as the Manager of Creative Services for the Washington Wild Things baseball team and Riverhounds Soccer Team in 2005. I helped facilitate and launch the installation of a brand new video board at the stadium. Fast forward to 2016 and now I am the Director of Creative Services for the Wild Things and the PA Rebellion softball team. I am in charge of designing all the visual elements associated with both teams such as printed items, advertisement, web graphics, and social media. Also, I am in charge of the stadium music system, video board graphics, and the on-field promotions team. For the 2016 season, the Wild Things were awarded the Frontier League Commissioner’s Award of Excellence for its corporate sales and in-game entertainment [press release on the Frontier League Website].
In my time in between stints at the Wild Things I have done an array of jobs. I got into contract work, which took me all over Pittsburgh. I did HTML coding at Edison Learning, performed IT help desk support at Chatham University, and helped develop a WordPress site called linkglobalbiz.com. Also, I was an SEO Specialist at Higher Images. At the time, I earned my Google Analytics certification. I have also bottled beer at Penn Brewery, worked at PNC Park and CONSOL Energy Center at the Pirates and Penguins team shops. Also, I managed an Exxon station in Waynesburg, PA for Jacob’s Petroleum and worked for Macy’s as a member of the Administration Support Team (AST).
