Nicole Beard

Nicole Beard is the mother of a fun and energetic toddler, Thomas. She has been a Kansan for almost 6 years, relocating from her native Florida shortly after graduating with her degree in Psychology from Florida State University. Besides being a mama, she works in Wichita at a local hospital helping patients apply for public benefits and loves the mix of serving others, meeting people and paperwork! Their home is a cute little apartment home on the outskirts of town. She is a planner and organized woman by nature, and although her life looks nothing like “planned,” she trusts God’s promises for her future and knows that He is there with her every step of the way. Besides spending time with her son, Nicole enjoys a good cup of coffee, crocheting, reading, taking walks when the weather is nice and investing in things that bring her joy and honor the Lord. She loves setting goals and reading up on topics that interest her. Her future plans include gardening on her front patio, getting healthier and focusing on the blessings in each day.
