Ashley Blazer Biden (born June 8, 1981) is an American social worker, activist, entrepreneur and founder of Livelihood. She is the daughter of 47th former vice president, who is currently serving as the 46th president of the United States, Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.
Ashley Biden is of mixed ethnicity with Italian, German, English, Scottish, Dutch and French heritage.
Ashley Biden started her career in the field working as a clinical support specialist at the NHS Children’s Reach Clinic in Kensington, Philadelphia. Soon after, She started working as an education specialist for the West End Neighborhood House. Then, She served as the executive director of the nonprofit Delaware Center for Justice until the 29th March 2019., where she helped develop programs for children in the juvenile justice, foster care and mental health systems.
In 2016, Ashley launched Livelihood, a charitable socially conscious business, ethically produced American-made clothing company in partnership with the online store Gilt. Its main collection consisted of feel-good, comfy organic cotton hoodies. Ashley created the hoodies when she couldn’t find one that was equal parts sleek and cozy.
The 3,400 hoodies that Biden designed and Gilt produced sold out, including Gilt donated $25,000 to the Livelihood Fund at the Delaware Community Foundation, Livelihood will donate 10 percent of its sales to community organizations in designated zip codes.
On July 4, 2019., D-Ploy Records founders 'The Fils-Aime Brothers' and Livelihood founder Ashley Biden have publicly announced their new business venture, which may also be considered a verbal agreement by both companies to re-launch Livelihood clothing brand in the United States and Haiti.
