Shevelle’s Story

Shevelle’s life changed instantly when she became a teenage mother. Her son became the source of her drive. Shevelle attended Rutgers University, earning dual bachelor’s degrees in accounting and business management. While in college and caring for her son, Shevelle worked nights as a security guard, part-time as a licensed realtor, and seasonally as a tax preparer. She also became an entrepreneur, starting her first business, McPherson Financial Group, a tax service company. After graduation, she gained her initial experience in the legal profession as a paralegal, work that sparked her desire to continue her education. Seeking greater opportunities for both herself and her son, Shevelle soon decided to attend law school and became an attorney.

Upon graduating from Seton Hall Law School, Shevelle relocated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she accepted a position as an Assistant District Attorney for the City of Philadelphia. While serving in that position, Shevelle earned her Master of Laws degree in trial advocacy from Temple University in Philadelphia. After serving for several years as an Assistant District Attorney, Shevelle resigned and opened up her own law practice, McPherson Law, with offices currently located in North Jersey, South Jersey, and Philadelphia. Shevelle has been featured in the Super Lawyer Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, and South Jersey Magazine. She has been recognized as a Rising Star Attorney, a National Trial Lawyer – Top 100, A National Black Trial Lawyer – Top 100, a 10 Best Female Attorney, Pennsylvania and a Lawyer of Distinction-Criminal Defense, top 10% USA.

Even after rising to the top of her game as a trial attorney, Shevelle still felt a void.  She felt a strong desire to make an even greater impact on the personal lives of others. She then authored and released her personal life story.  Her book, Soar! Beyond the Heels of Adversity became a number one best seller.  Shevelle’s book was a catalyst to her becoming a Professional Speaker.  She is now a highly sought after Award Winning International Speaker.  Moved by the impact she was having on the masses, and in response to their desire to connect with her on a more personal level, she formed Shevelle McPherson, LLC where she serves as a Business Success Strategist.  She provides business coaching and consulting services to women entrepreneurs and supports them in creating sustainable businesses that are profitable and legally protected. She also hosts webinars and teaches courses through her online educational platform, Soar2Success Academy.  Shevelle was inducted into the 2017-2018 VIP Member of the Year Circle by the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW). “I’m pleased to welcome Shevelle into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.” Shevelle also serves as Managing Director of the eWomen Network- Southern Jersey Chapter.  Shevelle loves educating, empowering and connecting with women entrepreneurs and she does this not only as a Business Success Strategist, but also as she heats up the airways hosting her weekly show, “Soar2Success Radio”, broadcasting on the eWomen Podcast Network.
