Emerging Leaders Spotlight: Ashley Stevens

September 20, 2023

Ashley is a Sarasota, FL native with 24 years of dedicated service at ESSA, where she proudly holds the role of Community Reinvestment Officer. Her mission is to ensure equitable lending, investment, and support for all the communities they serve. When she’s not championing community causes, you can find her indulging in her passion for delicious cuisine, fine wine, and globetrotting adventures. She’s also a devoted dog parent to her adorable Frenchie, Bella, and finds solace in kayaking on the water. Her commitment to the community extends beyond her work, as she volunteers extensively. Ashleys involvement with United Way includes teaching financial literacy, volunteering for Day of Caring, and spearheading initiatives like the Bank On Monroe program with Pocono Mountains United Way’s Ed Jones, Manager, Financial Mobility.
