Nichol is the mother of three children, twin five-year-olds and a two-year-old. She has a bachelor of arts from New Mexico State University, with a heavy emphasis on theatre. She has worked with children, both in ministry and in theatre. She has gone on several foreign missions trips, helping as a team leader and counselor for both teens and elementary school children. She lives in Kansas City as a stay-at-home mom and is involved in the startup of a ministry that will look to utilize the arts (theatre, writing, media, video, etc.) for ministry. Her hope is to partner with several churches in the area, to give people a chance at following the passions of their hearts.
