Cape is where she met her husband, meteorologist Charlie Neese. Then, in 1999, Eve and Charlie moved to Charlie’s hometown of Nashville, TN, to fulfill his dream of working as a meteorologist for NewsChannel 5, CBS affiliate. Recently, Eve spent the past ten years at Cross Point Community Church, (Voted as one of the top 10 fastest growing churches in the country by Outreach Magazine) where she has worn many hats as both a Volunteer Leader and Staff Member.  Currently, Eve is on staff as the Director of Volunteers for the newly launched Cross Point Franklin church campus.  Eve and Charlie have been with Cross Point since it’s inception in the fall of 2002.Eve also finds time to work as a freelance TV reporter and producer and has proudly been a Wild Side Guide since 2001.  Eve also enjoys reading, Yoga, the theatre, good food, strong coffee, hanging out with friends and loves most of all spending quality time with her family – Charlie, her son Gentry and daughter, Oharah.
