Eva hails from St. Louis, but spent much of her adult life in New York. She attended Columbia University for her undergraduate and graduate degrees (B.A., English/Art History; M.A., Art History), and received her J.D. from New York University in 2011.
First recruited to Alaska as a law student intern by the State's Department of Law, Eva returned post-graduation to clerk for Judge Sharon Gleason in Alaska Superior Court and the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska. She now practices at Ashburn & Mason, P.C., a private firm in downtown Anchorage, where she focuses on civil litigation in a variety of arenas.
Eva is a co-chair of the Alaska Bar's Intellectual Property, Arts, and Entertainment Law Section; sits on the executive committee of the Alaska Bar's New Lawyers Section; and serves on the Storyboard of Arctic Entries, a local nonprofit devoted to building community through storytelling. She also volunteers with Alaska Legal Services Corporation and the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
When she finds herself with free time, Eva spends it exploring the outdoors by ski, bike, or foot--no matter the season.
