Kristi Thomsen has been a passionate and tireless lupus advocate -- and activist – since the initial shock of receiving her lupus diagnosis, in 2004, faded away. A top Board leader for LFA, PNW over many years, she first served as Walk Committee Co-Chair (with Cori Lewis). Since March 2013, Kristi has been continuing in that capacity, as well as taken on the many responsibilities of being Chapter President. In her life before lupus, Kristi was a successful business woman. Today, Kristi’s family (including her husband, daughter, mother, father, sister, brother-in-law and uncle) and her large network of dedicated friends, continue to stand by and support Kristi throughout her struggles with lupus, as well as of LFA,PNW.
