Dorsey earned a doctorate in business administration with a major emphasis in management and a minor in economics from Jackson State University, where she also earned a master of business administration. She holds a bachelor of business administration in banking and finance from Mississippi State University.

She has presented her research at conferences in the United States and abroad and has received awards for best conference paper and best conference presentation. Dorsey has published articles in the Journal of Business and Economic Perspectives, Journal of Business, Industry, and Economics and Journal of Contemporary Management Research.
