She participed in the Special Olympics. Nicole was also a champion and advocate for the rights of the disabled and a beneficiary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Professionally, Nicole held administrative positions at Trinity Park Church of Christ as well as at various locations in the public sector. In addition, Nicole launched several online import businesses and wrote Christian literature until her health barred her from continuing.
