Born under the beautiful mountain High Tatras, Slovakia, being a Veterinarian was Eva’s childhood dream .She was raised in the city of Presov with 2 siblings and no yard for a dog; consequently, all of Eva’s childhood pets were small exotic animals. In 1992, she was accepted into the University of Veterinary Medicine in Kosice, Slovakia. Throughout Eva’s studies she nurtured her interest in exotic animal medicine. During the last two years of University, she completed her Masters in toxicology. After graduating in 1998, Eva began her PhD. in nutrition, while still practicing veterinary medicine in a clinical setting. Eva moved to Calgary, Canada in 2000 with her husband Maros. Here she began work at the University of Calgary in genetic & neuroscience research and volunteered at local emergency veterinary clinics where she was later employed with three well-known emergency Veterinary facilities as a veterinarian. Since 2006, Eva has worked as a locum Veterinarian for many vet clinics and the SPCA in Calgary. Eva is an active member of the Exotic DVM (a worldwide forum for exotic Veterinarians), ARAV (Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians), AEMV (Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians), AAV (Association of Avian Veterinarians), ABVMA (Alberta Veterinary Medical Association) and CVMA (Canadian Veterinary Medical Association). In 2007, Eva’s dream of becoming a mother came true with the birth of her daughter Anna-Maria in 2007 and again in 2011, with the birth of her son – Marcus Dominik. Eva is passionate about all sports, particularly downhill skiing and yoga. Her family of pets currently includes her African spurred tortoise Speedo, Green conure Buzz and Alexandrian parakeet Kristofa, many of whom were rescued.
