She has offered her carbonate expertise to the petroleum industry for the past 25 years, working on exploration and development projects for major to intermediate sized petroleum companies. In 2008, she founded Drivet Geological Consulting Ltd., offering her services as an independent consultant, generating opportunities within carbonate reservoirs and mentoring staffs for various companies operating in British Columbia, Alberta, Williston Basin and South America. Her portfolio includes green energy projects. Eva has published several papers on the topic of carbonate sedimentology and diagenesis, and conducts industry Carbonate Core Workshops since 2011. Since November 2020, Eva joined efforts with David Hills to offer industry carbonate core workshops and a virtual library of core displays and lectures showcased at www.carbonates.ca.

Eva has been volunteering with GeoWomen since 2019, as the chair of the GeoWomen recognition committee. She published in the September/October 2020 CSPG Reservoir a summary of findings entitled “AWARDS AND DEMOGRAPHICS – WHY ARE WOMEN UNDER-REPRESENTED?”. Based on these findings, she has implemented several initiatives, such as helping to recruit more female geologists on award nomination committees, launching a subcommittee to work with the CSPG and establish the “CSPG Patricia J. Lee Trailblazer Award” – the first CSPG (and Canadian) geoscience career award named after a women geoscientist (all genders eligible to be nominated), and assisting in nominating high profile women geoscientists to prestigious career awards.

She is a registered Professional Geologist with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA), an active member of the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG), the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).
