She graduated from the University of Queensland Veterinary School in 1991 and worked in mixed practice in North Queensland before moving to the United Kingdom. Eva then worked as a locum in small animal practices throughout England for 2½ years before returning to Australia and purchasing a small animal veterinary practice on the Sunshine Coast. Over the 18 years that she owned this business, her responsibilities included recruitment and management of recent veterinary graduates, nursing and reception staff. In 2010, Eva joined the UQ School of Veterinary Science as a co-facilitator of the Clinical Communication Skills Workshops, where she observed that times had changed—there were a lot more students, and a large proportion of international students, for whom English was not a primary language. This sparked an interest in international student education and so, in 2013, Eva embarked upon a PhD project exploring the influence of language and culture on learning in authentic clinical workplaces, using qualitative methodology (grounded theory). She is currently a research assistant on another OLT project, “Bringing the Learning Home—extension project”, which is exploring outbound student mobility in relation to graduate employability and developing a resource to assist students to make the most of their international study abroad experiences.
