Eva Pearson


“The Town of Oyster Bay has been mired in corruption for decades,” said council candidate Eva Pearson. “I am focused and committed to restoring ethics to our town – your town.  I am seeking the opportunity to work for you, not the special interests and politically connected.”

Eva Pearson has a long standing history of dedication to community service and education.  After serving five years active duty in the United States Air Force during the first Gulf War, she attained her Bachelor and Master’s Degrees in Psychology.  She is decorated with several military service medals, received multiple undergraduate academic awards, and was a top graduate of her master’s program.

 

Eva’s professional experience spans several fields, including psychological research at the New York University Child Study Center, behavioral therapy at the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center, health care management at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, and educational administration at Long Island University.  Presently, Eva works in academia, where she creates non-profit internship opportunities for undergraduate students and social justice related events for the greater community. Eva was also an Adjunct Instructor in the fields of both Psychology and Education for nearly ten years.

In her personal life, Eva’s volunteer activities include the Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, and more locally at Child Abuse Prevention Services and the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless. Eva is currently pursuing her PhD in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Buffalo (SUNY).  Most importantly, she is the proud mother of two young sons who continually inspire and motivate her to create positive change.

Eva is a prior Nassau County legislative candidate and currently lives in Farmingdale.
