Reviews for National Eating Disorders Association

Rating: 5 stars  

I have attended many walks, however this was my first year as the walk coordinator of the 3rd annual West Chester PA NEDA Walk! Jessica Hickman was with me every step of the way, answering my many questions and always supporting me with suggestions, encouragement and kindness. Jessica is professional, organized and passionate about what she does. I am so proud to be a part of an organization that saves lives, touches our communities and advocates for change! I'm looking forward to planning our walk in 2016 and feel confident that it will be, yet again, a stellar event with Jessica by my side! Thank you!

This was my second year working with NEDA, my first as a walk coordinator. It was a great experience. Jessica Hickman at NEDA was always available to assist our efforts in Louisville. She was positive and encouraging. NEDA is very easy to work with. It was apparent to me that they are always working towards making positive changes for the walk program and reaching more people!

I was a volunteer-intern this past summer 2015 at NEDA, and my experience on the Development/Fundraising team far exceeded my expectations. I gained a greater understanding about non-profit management and had hands-on experience in fundraising and special events planning with a special focus on further developing NEDA's national walks. By working closely with staff members, I gained invaluable skills in communications and organization. My time at NEDA truly piqued my interest in corporate social responsibility and exposed me to the vital role that companies play in fostering a culture of giving. The inspiring, hopeful, and driven community at NEDA helped further my professional and personal growth incredibly, and for that I am forever grateful.

I was the walk coordinator for the first NEDA walk in El Paso-October of this year. I worked with both Julie and Jessica during this process and they were very helpful, supportive, encouraging. This was my first time doing anything like this and the community I live in is not well aware of the dangers surrounding ED. So it was an uphill battle. But NEDA was with me every step of the way. Very easy to get a hold of, always willing to discuss ideas or concerns.
