In the 2013 WPSL season, Acevedo earned 9 caps for the Houston Aces, scoring 5 goals with 4 assists. She was named to the All-WPSL Team. The Houston Aces were the runners-up that year, losing in the WPSL Championship.

Portland Thorns FC

On January 3, 2014, Acevedo was allocated to the NWSL side Portland Thorns FC through the NWSL Allocation process. She was the only change to the Thorns' allocated players after they won the inaugural NWSL Championship.

She made her debut April 12, 2014 against the Houston Dash in the first game of the 2014 NWSL Season. Early in the year, she was speculated to be the likeliest replacement for the then-injured Alex Morgan as Portland's starting striker, but as the year progressed she only made appearances in the first two games of the year. Mexico did not allocate her to the NWSL for the 2015 season.

Acevedo earned two caps for the team in the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.

Mexico Senior Women's National Team

Acevedo earned her first international cap for the senior team on November 24, 2013, when she played a friendly against Canada in Vancouver, BC. She also took part in the July 11–20, 2014 training camp for Mexico National Team in preparation for Mexico's qualifying campaign for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.
