After having run her own graphic design company for 11 years, it was a very difficult transition for Nicole Lawry to end her career, and focus on regaining her health, lost to Lupus Nephritis. The last few years she's been very blessed with an amazing support system of family and friends who have gathered around her to help her reach remission, as well as spread awareness about this difficult and painful disease. She is a very proud Momma to Madison, and wife to her best friend, Jon. Together she and Jon serve on the Board of Molly's Fund Fighting Lupus where they are passionate about spreading awareness and raising funds to find a cure for Lupus. In their free-time, they love to go fishing, hiking, caming and bike riding.
