Originally from Maryland, Ashlea Tievy attended ECU and graduated in 2015 with a degree in Psychology. Upon graduation she applied for a position at The Painted Peacock, paint your own pottery and creative studio and through her hard work and take-charge attitude, she worked her way to manager in three short months.
With a passion for creativity, kindness and helping others, Ashlea, as she jokes, is changing lives one hand painted mug at a time! She finds joy in helping everyone find their creative side, especially for those who say they are not creative. “I’m most excited about a customer who comes in saying that they don’t have a creative bone in their body. I can’t wait to show them how easy and fun it is to be creative. When they pick up their final piece and say, WOW! I can’t believe it looks so good, that’s when I know I did my job!”
Whether it’s putting together a Doggy Day out with the Pitt Co. Animal Shelter, creating a fun new secret handshake with our special needs friends or painting with the kids of Riley’s Army, Ashlea strives to spread joy and be a positive role model to those around her.
