Eva is an active volunteer and advocate for a plethora of causes, working to advance literacy and improve the welfare of disadvantaged women, children, and victims of abuse and human trafficking.
When she’s not working, you’ll find Eva laughing, playing, and traveling with her favorite people on earth (her husband and two daughters), sampling the culinary treasures of Chicago, or lounging on her couch reading a good book, watching a crime drama, or cheering on (sometimes screaming at) the University of Michigan football team.

Eva has just hosted our fully virtual Global Youth Engineering Climate Conference ahead of COP26. She has worked for us before and after that experience putting her name in the hat for this project was a no brainer. You know when Eva takes on a project she’s passionate about she’s going to give 110% to it from researching every aspect of it to tweaking that script until the bitter end to make the most impact. Even at completely unsociable hours, due to the global nature of our event across various time zones, the energy she oozes is truly amazing and nothing but infectious when you listen to her. Thanks, Eva, for another great experience!
—Sandy Bhadal, COP26/Group Planning & Events at National Grid
Eva helped redefine excellence for our virtual events. My company and I had the privilege of working with Eva on a virtual client event where she served dual roles as both host and moderator. She truly became part of our team, diving into the content head first and offering unique perspectives and recommendations based on the goals we were trying to achieve. While moderating an interactive discussion with event attendees, she kept the conversation moving and balanced between participants, and connected the discussion points to our larger event theme and messaging. She was extremely knowledgeable, poised, and prepared — and I hope to work with her again!

Eva was exactly who NAWBO needed to usher our community into the virtual conference experience. She built the excitement and a warm connection between the speakers and the audience that we always love at our in-person events. Even though it was our first time working together, it seemed as though she had always been a part of our team. She was able to predict what our audience needed and captured our culture in her work. Outstanding professional!

Eva is a tremendously talented host and moderator, and blew me away with the time and dedication she took prior to the event to research all of the speakers for introductions, moderated discussions, and plan the script for the day. She brought energy, passion, and fun to our event stage, and the same to the planning process. I absolutely loved her, the audience loved her, and the speakers loved her. We were so appreciative of her efforts, and she went beyond every expectation we had. Eva is incredible in every way!
