Cassondra immediately dove into working in the spa industry at some of the top spa iin the Atlanta area. Locations include Nseya Salon & Spa. Spa Sydell and The Massage Spa formel owned and operated by Stacii Jae Johnson. Her personal business was birthed as a mobile massage company which received requests on production sets and special events which provided the opportunity of working with various artists and entertainers. Her extensive dance background, which spans over 30 years, allowed her to work with several artists and brands such as Outkast, Junaita Bynum, Arrested Development, Revlon, Bronner Brothers, Sensationnel Hair, and on movies such as Stomp the Yard and obain touring opportunities. Her dance background (instructor at Gotta Dance Atlanta, a co-founder of the Queens Dance Company while attending GSU, an original member of Culture Shock Atlanta hip hop dance company, and partner in the hip hop dance company Trilogy Inc) established and solidified a relationship that greatly shaped her influence in the Atlanta Dance community and her requests for mobile services. She wanted to help dancers take care of themselves, which led to the birth of Respire Massage in 2004. Although Respire was originally a mobile company, this relationship resulted in establishing a massage location at GDA, which is still going strong today.

After college, to utilize her skills, Yvetta jet setted to Atlanta to pursue opportunities working in fashion, finding yet another niche as a model and being the dj for the international brand Bronner Brothers Hair Shows. Desiring to find more consistent income, Yvetta was hired as Operations Manager for a marketing research firm. Because she excels in all that she does, Yvetta went from managing the firm to owning her own marketing & marketing research firm; thus was the birth of Ensignia Associates.
Yvetta could no longer ignore her desire to travel and work in entertainment, so she picked up and set sail to Houston, Texas to help develop and work with Beyoncé’s father, Matthew Knowles at Music World Music in the A&R division. After a few years, Yvetta got the opportunity to go on the road as a production assistant for a promoter on several music tours.
