NycEve graduated from Barnard College (Columbia University), where she majored in Economics. She is a highly-regarded blogger, known as NycEve. Her essays appear regularly on the Daily Kos recommended list. NycEve writes most often about health policy and access to health care.
NycEve spends much of her time learning about the healthcare crisis first-hand at a hospital in Manhattan, working with an oncologist and his patients to help them obtain hard-won insurance company approvals for treatments and medications.
Not incidentally, she's completing a first-novel--a take-no-prisoners rampage through the world of high-end New York City real estate. After fifteen years of toiling in this land of conspicuous consumption, it's a world she knows...all too well.
