The Elite News would like to introduce Porscha Kelley, M.S. to our writing team. Kelley is a Dallas native and graduate of Lincoln High School, Texas Christian University (BBA), and the University of North Texas (M.S. of Criminal Justice). The bulk of her professional career has been spent within the federal government with various agencies of the following departments: Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, and Department of Defense. As of recently, Kelley has entered onto the path of entrepreneurship with the establishment of her own businesses. She has a publishing company titled BlackEve Media [www.blackevemedia.com] and a collaborative logistics and consultation brokerage named Kelley’s Solutions [www.kelleyssolutions.com].
In 2016, Kelley authored the book Young, Black, & American, a non-fictional guide for African American teens available on the BlackEve Media website. Young, Black, & American gives teens and young adults a 21st century step-by-step introduction on how to establish financial structure, utilize current legal insight, and hone in on cultural history left out of traditional textbooks. This book has led her to multi-state conferences in efforts to spread this useful and needed information. She has most notably spoken at the Southwestern Black Student Leadership 30th Conference at Texas A&M College Station.
In 2017, Kelley authored the eBook Black Women, Corporate Culture, & Stereotypes (available on Amazon). This book takes a deeper analysis of and chronicles the systemic roadblocks black women face socially, politically, and within the workplace. In this book, Kelley details the phenomenon of black women becoming the most highly educated group in the US and their exponential growth as new entrepreneurs, leaving behind the corporate handcuffs and building a glass-ceiling free future.
Currently, Porscha Kelley has further spread her own entrepreneurial wings. Her brokerage firm, Kelley’s Solutions, works in efforts to help smaller businesses increase their capacity (in virtually any industry) by creating a lane for them to enter into the world of corporate and government contracting. In particular, she is building a team of truck owner-operators across the state in order to compete for long term contracting work.
Additionally, Kelley is very involved in community uplift and execution. Another one of her ventures includes small-scale real estate investing in distressed neighborhoods and the implementation of urban farming in minority communities. Her main goal is to help mentor and cultivate self-sustaining inner-city youth and young adults, growing them into future business owners, and helping in leading the next generation into wealth and cultural leaders. With that introduction, the Elite News team would like to welcome our newest writing member!
