Neva was born in Carson City, Nevada. She lived most of her life in Las Vegas, where she worked as a convention model. In 1994, she and her husband moved to Flagstaff, Arizona where she worked for a river rafting company. In 1998, Neva was diagnosed with a neurological disease, and so in 2000 she and her husband decided to move to Maine. In 2004, Neva was awarded a special volunteer award by Waldo Community Action Partners in Belfast, Maine for starting a calling service to seniors. Several years later, she developed the Accessibility Project in order to make the downtown of Belfast more accessible to people with mobility challenges. With the help of her husband, the Belfast City Council, the business owners, and the community, the city of Belfast went from being 20% accessible to 80% accessible in one year. Neva lives in Belfast with her two cats and tropical fish.
