Shevelle McPherson Releases Her New Book “Soar! Beyond the Heels of Adversity” 

— Book Hits Best Seller List on Amazon —

CHERRY HILL, NJ, September 02, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — Shevelle McPherson is an entrepreneur, attorney, a mother and a bestselling author. She has a passionate commitment to helping people and her first book that was released recently is one of the proofs of this commitment.

In her book “Soar! Beyond the Heels of Adversity” she shares her life story and how she was able to defy all the obstacles in her life by igniting 8 characters traits that she possesses. All of us have these traits but we often disregard them. Shevelle explains the importance of each of those traits to help us deal and overcome our own adversities in life.

According to Shevelle, “…because of these different adversities that I faced, they allowed me to actually begin to realize that I have, and we all have, certain character traits that we were wired with, that we were born with, and if we just ignite those character traits, if we just change our mindset, and we start to look at these adversities as opportunities for us to do something great, then we can all overcome these various issues as they pop up in life and we can all become successful.”

It all comes down to having the right mindset. It doesn’t matter if you’re surrounded with bad or good people; the way you deal with the situations that you’re in is what’s important. You need to understand that the only person who can help you is you. You have everything you need. You already possess all those character traits since the day you were born. Now, it’s time to make good use of them. It’s time to soar!

“In life, often, we have problems. It would be nice if we went through life and was just soaring on the wings of eagles and everything went smoothly every day. But the truth of the matter is, it’s really more like we’re soaring on the wings of adversity.” Steve Kidd, host Thriving Entrepreneur Radio Show – Hear the whole interview at

Shevelle’s life changed instantly when she became a teenage mother. Her son became the source of her drive to overcome the poverty, despair, and odds of defeat that seemed inevitable in her crime-ridden neighborhood in Newark, New Jersey.

She 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 several years as an assistant district attorney, Shevelle resigned to open her own law practice, McPherson Law Offices, with offices currently in North Jersey, South Jersey, and Philadelphia.

Shevelle has been selected a Pennsylvania Rising Star twice and has been featured in the Super Lawyer Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, and South Jersey Magazine.
