The Social Media Lady Team is constantly adapting our digital marketing strategies to exceed our clients' expectations. We serve the most value to those businesses without a social media professional on-staff. We enjoy the unusual, but can make the stodgy look stimulating. We want people to compliment your content.
Haley Reggio Pederson is the founder and owner of The Social Media Lady. She began her social media journey in 2013 by creating and managing the Facebook pages for her employer, her father, and her sister. She is a wife, mother, and cancer survivor. Her health saga is ongoing. You can find out more about that at her personal/family/travel blog at http://pedtrek.com.
Her management degree from LSU in Shreveport provided her a great base-knowledge of business and people. She also spent a decade in outside sales, marketing, and management prior to social media which built a solid foundation and network to grow businesses.
She first had the idea of social media as a career when she won a Kindle Fire in a Facebook contest for Podnuh's BBQ (Shreveport, Louisiana) in 2012. A little over 2 years later, she launched this social media agency. In the first five years, the business grew far beyond her expectations. She is giddy (and grateful) to get to be a part of the next 10!
Terra Leigh works alongside Haley as a Social Media Manager, specializing in Social Media Marketing, Graphic Design, and Photography. Terra works hands-on with clients to create and execute marketing plans to ensure a successful social media presence for their brand.
Born and raised in Plain Dealing, Louisiana, Terra enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps during her Junior year of high school and left for basic training shortly after graduating from Haughton High in 2001.
She was stationed in California at Camp Pendleton, where she spent four years on active duty. During which time, she deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom & Operation Enduring Freedom.
Terra is married and the mother to her 13yr old 'mini-me,' Taylor, and two fur-babies; Scout, a 5yr old American Staffordshire Terrier, and Stryker, a 1yr old English Bull Terrier.
Terra is a member of the American Poolplayers Association and, in 2018, competed in the APA 8-Ball World Championship in Las Vegas.
Terra's favorite quote is, "Give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she'll conquer the world." -Marilyn Monroe
Christine Novelo, clocking in from the Philippines, brings over a decade of copywriting skills to our team.
Christine is a mother of 3 and has been working from home as a Virtual Assistant for more than 7 years now. She loves reading non-fiction books mostly Mystery, Thriller, and of course Rom-Com! For her, nothing beats the smell of a paperback, whether old or new! She also loves writing. This is probably the reason why she landed writing jobs after college even though she studied health.
Before starting her work-from-home career, she was a grant proposal and article writer in a local BPO company where she wrote hundreds of grant proposals, articles, and web content. She led her team in creating a formal business proposal for a start-up company in the UK and is often the go-to person for checking and proofreading her other team members' works.
Working from home, she had the flexibility to try different jobs outside of writing. She went out of her comfort zone and expanded her skills taking on marketing and promotional tasks, graphics creation, and social media management. In the past 7 years of working from home, she has seen and experienced first-hand how fast technology changes and how social media has risen to become the number one source of information and news.
Outside of her working hours, Christine fills her time by running around the house after her kids, watching movies, working out (at home, of course!), and cooking! She spends a lot of time in the kitchen, cooking and baking not only as a hobby and responsibility to feed her family with healthy meals but also as a stress reliever.
Christine thinks it is important to focus on the present, have fun, and spread kindness and love!
