2008    Stevenson joined Xavier University to support students from diverse backgrounds.  By managing conferences, multiple budgets, and hiring staff she gained skills to coordinate large scale projects, make fiscally responsible choices, and collaborate with decision-makers from a variety of perspectives.

2011    Stevenson built on her campus leadership through AmeriCorps VISTA and worked at Gabriel’s Place in Avondale.  She developed a farmer’s market, created a community garden mentor program, and surveyed residents to learn how to meet their basic needs for food security.  She spoke regularly at area community councils and local events.

 2012    Stevenson expanded her skills in management through Human Resource Development at Xavier University.  She designed presentations and tools to inform residents and elected leaders of each other’s needs through the Community Engagement Academy and the Community Leaders Institute.

2013    Stevenson coordinated a Cincinnati City Council campaign and began consulting with local leaders in business, education, health, and non-profit.  She was also named a YWCA Rising Star and a SuccessGuide Emerging Leader.

2014    Stevenson consulted with the Creating Healthy Communities Program at the Cincinnati Health Department.  While winning over $500,000 in grant awards, she facilitated a citywide health evaluation and collaborated with the American College of Sports Medicine to develop a strategic plan for neighborhoods with low life expectancy.

2015    Stevenson won a scholarship to study with the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy at UMASS Boston.  She assisted in promoting leadership of women of color  at the local level, and coordinated the organization re-design of the Boston Women’s Fund—a resource for breaking racial, social, and economic barriers for women and girls.

2016    Stevenson consulted with the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Social Policy and Global Studies to create online platforms for students to learn about public administration.  She also coordinated New England’s only online master’s program in Global Comparative Public Administration.
