IN HONOR OF HER LEGACY

Edna P. Spencer was a woman beyond her time.

In honor of her birthday, August 18th, athLEDA has created a separate entity, EDNA Inc. to capture all of her and our dear leader, Tracey Hathaway's research and analytics behind the athLEDA way.

athLEDA simplifies the transition from athlete to professional

As a college athlete, you’ve spent years training, honing your skill, and pushing yourself mentally and physically.

Your sport has been your constant companion - a passion, a source of family, a way of life. Then before you know it, your athletic career ends and you’re left asking yourself, “what’s next?”

AthLEDA is dedicated to helping student athletes answer that daunting question. 98% of college athletes go “pro” in something other than sports and we understand that transition comes with its fair share of learning curves and challenges. At athLEDA, we see the leader in you. Through career coaching, powerful mentorships, networking opportunities and more, athLEDA will empower your sense of belonging in the business world and accelerate you on your path from athlete to emerging leader.

Success Stories

“I knew that I had much to offer but I had no clue where I was going nor how to get there. With Jelanna’s help, we were able to highlight my skill sets and goals. Now I have a better view of the bigger picture and a career path, which has established purpose in every step I take from here on out.”

“Life after college can be extremely hard to navigate and prepare for. The AthLEDA Foundation has the tools to guide student-athletes through the challenges of post-graduation life. For me personally, I have always done better with a team working to achieve a common goal. I firmly believe that the AthLEDA Foundation is that perfect team.”

“Throughout life you will unexpectedly meet people who will have a great impact on which path you go down. For me that person is Jelanna. I am beyond thankful that I have had the opportunity to connect with, grow and learn from her and the AthLEDA Foundation. Her leadership, encouragement, and belief in others is infectious. Her authenticity and consistency made it very easy to work with her and is a clear example of why she is successful helping high performing college-athletes transition into careers.”
