Nichole Chobin, East Windsor, NJ resident and nationally recognized MS patient, advocate and speaker, will attend a legislative day in DC. Nichole is a fighter and on a mission to spread awareness and help others. Diagnosed in 2006, Nichole works to continue and maintain a daily life of normalcy due to this life-altering disease. She wants to inspire and give hope to others who suffer from MS too. Her diagnosis, and the emotional rollercoaster that followed, opened the door to the next chapter of her life: sharing the message of limitless belief in ourselves. Nichole is a “Powerhouse Woman” who engages and educates others because she’s lived it. She has survived two fiancés dying, a plane crash, and her debilitating disease that almost partially paralyzed her. She’s taken all of these life altering experiences and turned them into positive knowledge and the mastery of passion, purpose, and profession.
The purpose of this special annual legislative day is to bring to light the importance of awareness and education for MS. Working with legislators to enact changes that will support betterment in the healthcare system and create more research funding. In fact, the February 2019 edition of Neurology states that more than twice as many people are suffering from MS than previously thought. One million.
HER LIFE HAS BECOME HER LEGACY. Unbelievable tragedy and loss. Something only a Lifetime Television Movie could equate to. Through her life’s experience, Nichole has gained the incredible ability to take adversity and turn it into tremendous empowerment.
In 2002, her life went off the rails with a tragic death. Then in 2006 she set off on a terrifying, but ultimately life-altering, journey that started the day she learned she had a debilitating disease. That wasn’t life’s first—or last—heartbreak for her, but its unique challenges proved to be the catalyst for finding her true self.
After years of success as an entrepreneur, business owner, operations director, and professional speaker, her diagnosis—and the emotional rollercoaster that followed—opened the door to the next chapter of her life: sharing the message of limitless belief in ourselves. And that’s what she does…speaking around the country.
With 17 years of experience, she has the skills and mindset to teach others the ability to take any adversity and turn it into empowerment. Doing it with many ‘Truth Bombs’ and A LOT OF HUMOR! She makes sure she entertains, engages, and educates her audiences so they always have valuable and memorable takeaways.
Delivering tailored programs based on a deep understanding of a company’s business and objectives. Through humor and sharing her personal experiences, she makes certain she creates a lively environment that captivates, engages, and inspires. Speaking to and for Fortune 500 clients nationwide, businesses large and small, governmental, and non-profit’s, she makes sure her high energy and dynamic personality ensures messages resonate with attendees and accomplish the goals that are set.
Her life story expands way beyond the debilitating disease that almost partially paralyzed her body. It’s about how she surprised even herself and came back fighting to become a stronger, healthier, more inspired version of her. She truly believes that through limitless passion, spirit, and the courage to believe in ourselves, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish. She’s determined to share her story with others who may be doubting their hidden power to overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams. Empowerment, success, YES YOU CAN have it!
