Our founder and principal consultant, Yolanda N. Davis, is a small town girl from Whiteville, NC who enjoys attending sporting events to cheer on the teams at each of her alma maters, as well as the Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Hornets. When she’s not enjoying a sporting event, she’s pursuing her passion for food, culture, and travel; reading a good book; or spending time with family and friends.
Yolanda received a B.S. degree, magna cum laude, in Biology and minor in Chemistry from Winston-Salem State University and M.S. degree in Accountancy from the Wayne Calloway School of Business and Accountancy at Wake Forest University. After obtaining her masters, she worked for a "Big 4" public accounting firm as a Fortune 500 Business Assurance and Advisory Services professional. Thereafter, she obtained a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and received her J.D. from Campbell University, Norman A. Wiggins School of Law. She is also a licensed real estate broker in North and South Carolina.
Since 2011, The Y9 Group has advised a diverse group of nonprofits and entrepreneurs in 501(c)(3) nonprofit administration and management, and business financial management.
Our clients have included sports philanthropists, human services organizations, private foundations, churches and other religious organizations, schools, financial counseling and money management organizations, start-up charities, and small businesses such as a gift boutique, marketing and media company, technology firm, and online fashion boutique.
Yolanda Davis from The Y9 Group has been providing general accounting services to Dress for Success Charlotte since 2016. She is professional, responsive, and flexible; and her knowledge of nonprofit accounting and administration has served our growing organization extremely well.

Ms. Davis is a highly effective professional. I refer all aspiring nonprofit managers to consult with her for possible services. I highly recommend her for business needs including accounting, marketing and other financial advising. I trust Ms. Davis' skills and would utilize her again in the future.
For over ten years, we have worked with good, independent bookkeepers/controllers, but Yolanda Davis raised the bar. Yolanda and her team asked the right questions to understand our business and quickly got a grasp of the business then applied their impressive accounting and business skills and knowledge to improve and simplify our procedures and record keeping. They are very dependable, fast and extremely accurate. As a bonus, Yolanda has a warm, engaging and "can-do" personality. We couldn't be more pleased!
