About Eve My J.D. and Ph.D. are from Nebraska. After graduating from Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida (as Eve Leonard), I came to graduate/law school at UNL. Five years later I was back in Florida teaching at the University of Florida. Now I'm back in Lincoln. Although I went to high school (Go WNHS Warriors!) and college (Go JU Dolphins!) in Florida, I think of Lincoln as my hometown. .

When I'm not working I enjoy running, sewing, reading, and listening to the greatest singer/songwriter of all time (Jimmy Buffett).
