Nichole Mischke recently quit her job in television after working on KHQ's Wake Up Show for nearly 6-years. As a broadcast journalism major and Gonzaga graduate, working in news locally in Spokane was a job she once believed was her dream career but along the way, she discovered that her passion for storytelling was pulling her in a different direction.
Although she always loved sharing OTHER people's stories, sharing her own story was something she never thought she'd be brave enough to do. In fact, she kept her story a secret from every person in her life for nearly a decade. A series of events though led her to a point where she knew she needed to find the strength to share what she had been going through since she was 17-years-old.
The healing and freedom she experienced sharing her story has been so incredibly life-changing, it's put her on a new path. She has launched her own photography business as well as a storytelling platform called "Uncovered with Nichole Mischke," hoping to extend the gift of healing she received when she shared her story to other people. She is now sharing stories of inspiring people in our community who have gone through painful or shameful experiences and come out on the other side of healing with a message of hope and inspiration.
Her message to the world is "embrace your imperfections!"
Since quitting her job, Nichole has had the opportunity to come alongside an incredible nonprofit organization and travel to Mexico to bring shoes to children who don't a single pair. She has also partnered with a women's movement called "More Than Me" to be a keynote speaker and at their conferences across the country, sharing her story and inspiring women to share theirs as well.
