Nichole Mishke graduated from Gonzaga University in 2010 and worked in local news for years as an anchor before launching her own video business. She is on a mission to UNCOVER stories of shame and struggle so people can be set free from the toxic lies shame tells us all. As a journalist who expected to spend her career working in television news, Nichole has always had a passion to share OTHER people’s stories. However, it took finding the courage to share her Own story to really

bring to her attention the healing power that comes when we own and share our truth, especially the parts shame tells us to hide.

Our greatest purpose in life can only be found once we own our full story and I lived for a decade running from mine. There was one simple sentence though that ultimately drove me to finally share the part of my story I was most terrified to claim and that sentence was this: 

“Promise me you will share your pain. Share your pain because if you don’t, it will grow and fester and become something nasty inside you.” - Leon Logothetis

Listening to those words, I knew there was truth in that statement and for the first time I decided to reject the fear of being “found out“ that had kept me silent.

In finally owning my story I found a love for myself and a purpose beyond anything I had known before. I knew I needed to try give that same experience and transformation to other people. So today, I work to help others share their stories and uncover the secrets shame tells us all to hide. I am inspired to keep going because the more we share our stories, the more we realize we’re not alone… and that is the greatest gift a person can ever receive.
