She represented Canada at the 2010 World Junior Curling Championships in Flims, Switzerland where she won a silver medal. She also represented Canada as a member of the Homan team at the 2013 World Women's Curling Championship in Riga, Latvia where she won a bronze medal, at at the 2014 Ford World Women's Curling Championship in Saint John, New Brunswick where they won a silver medal and at the 2017 World Women's Curling Championship where they won a gold medal.

Aside from the Homan team, Miskew was also won the 2008 Junior provincial mixed title with Christian Tolusso.
