Stevenson became involved in legal work as a result of homeschooling her children in Connecticut; she became involved in protecting her right to homeschool as a parent even before she began attending law school. She currently practices Education law and Appellate law privately in addition to working as Executive Director of NHELD, LLC.

Although NHELD offers information regarding federal education laws, Stevenson herself is Connecticut’s most prominent legal advocate for homeschoolers.
