A native Austinite, Nicole moved to Fort Worth in 2007 after meeting her husband of 13 years. During that time the couple has welcomed their three children ages 12, 11, and 6. Nicole stays active with her three children (and four dogs) by getting outside in the sunshine daily. She has been a full-time elementary school teacher for the past 11 years. Nicole’s main goal as a writer is to shed light on raising a child with special needs and the challenges it brings.
