Eva received professional training as a Natural Therapeutic Therapist, and had her own massage studio in Honolulu, HI. She later achieved her masters degree in Social Work, and went on to work in Child Protective Services, and at a small town highschool in Sante Fe, New Mexico. Eva also became a practitioner of Science of Mind and helped many others in their spiritual journey at the Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living in Albuquerque, NM. Eva was a free spirit and while she had many interests including art, politics, advocacy, gardening, religion, archeology, and travel, one of her greatest passions was helping others. She donated her time volunteering as a hospice companion, a Montessori teacher, at an overnight shelter for the homeless, just to name a few. She loved life, and will be greatly missed. “Doors open all the time to new adventures”- Eva T. Gate
