Who is Niki Wyre?
After being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (recently changed to Psoriatic arthritis after new onset / diagnosis of psoriasis in early 2017) and Fibromyalgia, on top of a never ending growing list of other medical conditions, Niki went in search of online support. Despite becoming disabled, she continues to have a positive outlook and is always available to help others. Instead of dwelling on the negative aspects of her medical issues, she reached out and created an online community of support.
Niki strives to raise awareness for Autoimmune Arthritis, raise money for the cure, and educating those patients diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis or related conditions.
Niki lives in Clearwater, Florida with her fiance, Murphy and four spoiled Pomeranians. She is currently 37 years old and even though she was born in Ohio she could never think of anything but Florida as her home.
Niki is an avid reader, crocheter, crafter, video gamer, comic book reading, proud auntie, and self-titled Queen of eBooks. She is also a novice writer and aspires to learn how to sew her own clothing creations. She may be addicted to Pinterest but it’s not too unhealthy. When asked “What can’t you do?”, she simply responded “Cook!”.
On top of her efforts with the RA Chicks, Niki keeps herself busy with many projects in the works. She also runs the “Crafterchick.com : Crafty Chick with Rheumatoid Arthritis” and “eReaderlove.com” Facebook pages plus their related social media accounts. In addition, she runs the websites crafterchick.com and ereaderlove.com on top of rachicks.com.
She has been awarded Best in Show on Facebook Health Activist award by Wego. She became an advocate for Autoimmune Arthritis working with the Arthritis Foundation (AF) as well as IFAA (The International Foundation for Autoimmune Arthritis). She hopes to expand her work with more nonprofits in 2015 and the following years as she gets more organized.
Currently Niki Wyre is a health activist / advocate for Autoimmune Arthritis (like Rheumatoid Arthritis), Arthritis ambassador, public speaker, panelist, blogger and founder of RA Chicks: Women with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
