Eva is originally from Houston, Texas, but has lived in a number of other big cities (e.g. Fort Lauderdale, San Francisco, DC, Calabasas, and Charlotte) before settling into Frisco, CO in late 2015. Married to retired John Leon, they decided to start a new adventure in a community that would allow them to embrace the beautiful outdoors for both winter and summer activities. This became the perfect environment for older brother-in-law, Mark Leon, to thrive and become an independent adult for the first time in his life. Mark’s significant advancements are directly related to the entire community’s open arms, which further solidified the appropriate timing to relocate to Summit County.
Given Summit County’s tremendous effort in “raising” Mark, Eva felt compelled to find an opportunity to given back to this gracious community, which is what drove her to not only join Women of the Summit in March 2018, but became the Membership Board Member in May of 2018. The experience has been truly rewarding, especially as it relates to the gratifying effort to award scholarships to our Summit County graduating young ladies.
In addition to her favorite outdoor activities (skiing, hiking, kayaking, etc.) and a day job working from home in the reverse mortgage servicing industry, Eva has been enjoying Zumba® for over 10 years, and became licensed for Zumba® and Zumba Gold® in April 2018. As the daughter of a Grammy nominated second generation musician, music is in Eva’s blood. Eva’s ability to “feel” the music is evident with even the most basic choreography. This desire to dance has literally moved Eva into a part time instructor position, mostly with Studio B Dance and Fitness Center in Frisco. Zumba® has become the perfect opportunity to fully embrace the things that bring joy to Eva, and all those that surround her whenever music is playing.
Knowing how fit-conscience Summit County residents are, Eva has taken a slightly unique approach to her Zumba® effort in that she offers “dance parties” rather than a traditional hyper-structured fitness experience, which is completely customizable to each participant and/or event.
