Nicole grew up in small-town Southeast Texas but made her way to Austin as fast as she could. God adopted her into His family at the relatively young age of sixteen and has done nothing but continuously call her back to Him ever since. She studied at the University of Texas where she met her husband and best friend, Andrew Harbert. Together they take care of a plethora of plants and animals, and love to seek creative ways to serve the kingdom. Nicole also loves to spend her free time embroidering, hiking, and dancing in both professional and amateur groups in the greater Austin area.
