Bev is one of the most compassionate humans you’ll ever meet. She and her husband have been married for 18 years and have 2 incredible kiddos. Her husband is a football Strength & Conditioning Coach which she says allows her family to see different parts of our country. (See what she did there? Always looking at the bright side!) They have been in the collegiate sports world for over 10 years and have recently moved to the state of Washington to join the Seahawk Family.
Beverly is also a coach, with a focus of more inner work. As a personal development coach, she supports coaches’ wives who struggle with loneliness, burnout, and uncertainty by teaching them methods to stay grounded and centered through constant transition. She said, “My clients come to me when they feel overwhelmed by the unknown, and what they gain in our coaching is empowerment… empowerment over mindset and self-compassion.”
Have you ever felt overwhelmed in this lifestyle? We all deserve to be heard and to receive wisdom and discernment, and I’m telling you, Bev is your girl. I got to talk with her quite a while on the phone one afternoon and she is the real deal.
When preparing for this segment, Bev said, “If there is one message I want to convey to coaches’ wives across the globe, it is this: You are not alone wherever your physical body may be. I may not know your name just yet, but when our paths do cross, I will hear you… I will see you.. and I love you already.”

Spencer Dennis- Sunny Side Designs Co
She is a high school teacher in Fort Worth Texas! Her fiancé’s name is Blake and he coaches at Lovejoy High School in Lucas, Texas! They are currently #6 in the state! How fun is that?! She met Blake when they worked at the same school and the football players she had in my class insisted that she meet their single coach! They met and he proposed at the last game of the season and are getting married in March! How adorable is that. Anyway, Spencer is the owner of Sunny Side Designs Co. She

Lindsey Harvey - Monat
She and her husband live in Hutto, TX, which is near the Austin area. He is the defensive coordinator at Hutto High. They have two boys who are 11 and 8. Lindsey and her husband are both teachers full time, but she also took up a business on the side as a market partner for MONAT hair, skin and wellness company! As a former hair stylist myself, I LOVE this brand and their products, too! Lindsey told me how It is the # 1 selling premium haircare company in the nation! All the products she sells are non toxic, vegan and leaping bunny approved. Their hair products use the best botanical and essential oils. There is something referred to as liquid gold found in almost all of their products, the Rejuvenique oil, and it penetrates to the inner most core of the hair and heals the hair from the inside out! Most salon and store bought products are topical and work as band aid to cover hair instead of heal it! So this is a really great option for anyone who is tired of the same results and ready for some real change in their hair. Monat products are good for all hair types and ethnicities! They are safe for kids, (we even have a safe pet care line!) MONAT is for damaged, dry, thinning, curly, and even healthy hair! Maybe you’ve been struggling with your hair or maybe you’ve been slowly making the switch to more clean, healthy products in your home...Monat is a great place to start, and Lindsey is your girl. Her website is https://linsharvey.mymonat.com/ and she can also be found on Instagram @lindsey_harvey or you can join her Facebook group at Nourishing My Heart and Hair.
Nicole Kyle - Level
She grew up as a coach’s daughter and is now a proud coach’s wife in DeRidder Louisiana. She and her husband are both teachers and he is currently the Athletic Director, Defensive back coach, AND head track coach at Rosepine High School. They have 6 children-3 grown bonus children for Nicole with 4 grandchildren and then 3 children of theirs together.
After years of feeling overworked and fatigued as a coach’s wife, mom, teacher, etc, she was feeling burnt out and had had enough. She believes God always knows what we need and sends it to us right on time. On September 9, 2015 she asked her husband if he had thought about her birthday gift that year. After 16 years of being married to a coach and having a birthday during football season she already knew the answer. :) She told him she wanted them to start Thrive by Le-Vel, and it has changed their lives. She now spends her days serving men and women like us, teaching them how 3 simple steps in the first 30 minutes of our day could make such a difference. Because within just 3 days, they were noticing a difference. They slept better, woke up refreshed and well rested, had more energy, less aches and discomforts and could make it through the entire day without needing a nap. By day 10 they were craving less and less unhealthy choices in our diet and wanted better options. They had more to offer each other and their family and have benefitted from their choice over the last six years. If you are ready to take that step toward living healthier and happier Nicole would love to help you!
