She received her bachelor’s degree from Auburn University and her master’s degree from Virginia Tech. She went to work at Fort Jackson as a wildlife biologist in 2007. One of the top woodpecker specialists in the country, she was especially known for her work to save the rare red-cockaded woodpecker. She was previously employed with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
Nicole was a member of the Wildlife Alumni of Auburn and the Auburn Alumni of South Carolina. She was well known in the southeast for her conservation work. She left the world better than she found it.
A nature lover from childhood on, she was remembered as “absolutely fearless” and dedicated to her work.
Nicole was strongly devoted to her children. No matter what your conversation was with her, it would always lead back to them. She left a huge impression of life on her family and friends that will forever be missed.
Surviving are her children, Christopher Dakota Bryant, James David Hawkins, and Andrew Asher Hawkins; her father, Larry Chadwick; her mother, Elizabeth Bridgeman; her sister, Kristie Chadwick; and her brother, Jason Chadwick.
