Kendra Dancy is a CPA and Virtual CFO who is dedicated to serving Black female entrepreneurs. Think of her as your business bestie- who has your back and your books! A nerdy accountant by trade, Kendra loves using numbers to tell a story and inform decisions. Kendra founded The Blk Report to demystify all things business finances and empower Black women entrepreneurs to not only know their numbers but to recognize the power in using their numbers to make strategic decisions in their business. When she’s not working – she enjoys trying new restaurants with her husband, taking long walks with her dog, or pretending to be a bartender and mixing up cocktails at home.
