Nicole Nickel
Hi, I’m Nicole! I’m a mommy to two toddlers: Scarlet and Easton, and wife to Justin. We also have 2 furbaby Labs. I am an Oklahoma girl, born and raised. I’ve been here in Wichita since October 2016. Moving from my home of Norman has been tough, but what a great community to relocate! We love to get out explore the area, finding fun toddler and family activities! In addition to mom and wife, I am an early intervention speech-language pathologist for a local nonprofit organization. Some of my favorite things-being an OK girl, I am a die-hard OU football fan (Boomer!), being outdoors, traveling, friends and family, wine and coffee!
