Nikole was born and raised in Jupiter, Florida where she enjoyed the sun, sand, and waves. She grew up nonreligious and home life was messy being surrounded by drugs and alcohol at a young age. After her parents divorce, she started hanging out with the wrong kids. Although starting college classes two years ahead of her class, Nikole was “honorably discharged” from high school in the 10th grade. But by the grace of God she managed to escape the path the world set before her and found Jesus shortly after moving to Franklin in 2006.

She married her amazing husband, Chris Wilkins, in 2015 and he brought with him 2 wonderful children. They started attending Discover Church in 2017 where Nikole started serving in the kids area and ended up on staff part time as the assistant to the Children’s Director. They welcomed a baby boy in 2019 (who can now be seen roaming the church, usually pretending to be a T-Rex). And in August of 2020 she was presented with an opportunity to become the church administrator, with a background in bookkeeping, it was a perfect fit.

In her free time Nikole enjoys hanging out with her husband, friends and family, as well as hiking, baking, enjoying the lake and going on walks with her adorable dogs.
