Ashleigh D’Addezio has a long history of giving back to her community and introducing innovative ideas in the workplace. While working and volunteering in the nonprofit sector for the better part of 13 years, the roles she held were typically combinations of several jobs to preserve funding. This enabled her to gain a variety of skills in social media management, marketing, graphic design, and customer service. In 2019, she started her own marketing company called One Village Media. She aspires to use her expertise to assist local businesses and nonprofits with implementing their online presence effectively. She goes above and beyond to ensure that her clients succeed – because if her clients are thriving, her community is thriving – and that “takes a village”. One Village Media was named Northshore’s Best Advertising Agency in 2019 for East St. Tammany by Sophisticated Woman Magazine.
To give back to her community, Ashleigh regularly hosts free classes and webinars on various marketing topics in conjunction with St. Tammany Parish Library. She donates her time to nonprofits who need help with updating their social media pages or designing new promotional materials. She is a champion for local small businesses and nonprofits which she features on Northshore Savvy, an online community for recommending places that residents and travelers alike should visit. She has volunteered with East St. Tammany Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program for the last two years, leading her own team as a Woman of Distinction in 2020 titled the “Resilient Rosies”. Furthermore, Ashleigh jointly manages The Sisters Society, an organization with an online group of over 3,600 individuals in the East St. Tammany area that is dedicated to connecting strong women who are confident, productive members of their communities.
