Indianapolis, IN (March 22, 2016) – Jessica Nickloy Chief Executive Officer for the etica group, inc, was named as a 2016 Inaugural W.I.S.H (Women Inspiring Strength and Hope) Honoree.
Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana held its inaugural W.I.S.H. (Women, Inspiring, Strength, & Hope) luncheon in Indiana on March 18, 2016. The event honored 20 outstanding women for their career success, significant contributions to the community and personal passion and commitment to Make-A-Wish®. Emcee Nicole Pence hosted the day’s activities while Dr. Paul Haut, Interim President and Chief Medical Officer at Riley Hospital for Children explained the importance and value that granting wishes provides.
The Inaugural W.I.S.H. event served as an opportunity to network and inspire other women in the community and to make a difference in the lives of local children. Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
As a 2016 Honoree, Ms. Nickloy has been raising funds for a special little girl. The average cost of a wish is $8,000. All the funds raised will go directly towards the little girls wish. “Being able to provide a smile and a day of hope to a sick child and their family is life changing,” explains Ms. Nickloy. “I’m truly humbled to be selected and to be among these amazing Indianapolis women helping to accomplish so much.”
Ms. Nickloy is involved in numerous other organizations including NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners), ACEC (American Council of Engineering Companies), and ICR (Indianapolis Construction Roundtable). Ms. Nickloy states, “Giving back to the community and to those that have helped me
to become who I am today is something I take very seriously. So many have assisted in making my dreams come true, so providing a wish is an amazing opportunity.”
