During the summer of 1985, Kecia met Drs. Smethurst and Burdette as a rising freshman in the Emory University/Oxford College Prep program. After completing the program and enrolling in college, Kecia returned to Atlanta each summer to work for Dr. Burdette and Dr. Smethurst with the incoming Oxford Prep students. Kecia also worked with Drs. Burdette and Dr. Smethurst in the Emory Reading Clinic after completing her first two years at Oxford College.

Kecia graduated from Emory University in 1989 and became a Network Administrator for the Fulton County Department of Environment and Community Development. While working full-time, she continued to work for BFA and also began working on her Masters at Georgia Institute of Technology. She finished her Masters in City Planning/GIS in December, 1993.
