Meet Ashlea, our Customer Delight and Conference Manager!

Our core values aren't things we teach or train on, they're just a part of who we are. They're the most important thing we look for when hiring, because they are the guiding force in our organization. We've been showing you sneak peeks at our two newest ladies on social media for the last few weeks, and we're thrilled to formally introduce them over the next two days! We're equally thrilled they both embody our core values to a tee :)

Friends, meet Ashlea, our Customer Delight and Conference Manager! If you've emailed over the past few months or signed up for our Making Things Happen Conference, there's a good chance you've met Ashlea (maybe without even realizing it!). Ashlea joined our team in early March, dove right into attending her very first Making Things Happen Conference soon after, and has been a rockstar since then. Not only is she incredibly dedicated, but she consistently brings our team back to our why and what matters most to us, and we've found that invaluable!

She's also had a big few months personally–celebrating a birthday and an engagement all in one week! We're not ones to shy away from celebrations, so we loved having the chance to shower her with well-wishes and congratulations!

Keep reading to get to know Ashlea–I can say with complete confidence you are going to come to adore her joyful spirit as much as we all have over these past three months!


You'll get to meet the lady on the left tomorrow :)

What's your title? Customer Delight and Conference Manager

What have you been doing since March? So much! My role is unique and gives me the opportunity to serve on both our Operations and Marketing Pods. Since starting, I've attended my first Making Things Happen Conference, learned our Cultivate company history at our Team Summit, experienced my first summer product photo shoot, learned how to delight our customers, and worked alongside our team to develop new ways to help women live more purposeful lives. It's hard to believe how much I've been able to put my hands to in only three months! Little by little progress adds up, y'all!

What else will you be doing in the coming months? The next few months will be busy for all of us but so much fun! One of my top priorities is working alongside our conference director, Kristin Winchester, to plan our fall Making Things Happen Conference in September. Our team likes to think of Making Things Happen as doing PowerSheets in person and there is nothing else like it. I'm so excited to meet all of the conference attendees in a few short months! Oh, and just in case you missed it, our 2019 PowerSheets launch in October! Get ready y'all–they're going to blow you away! I'll be preparing to serve our Cultivate community well during our PowerSheets launch by consistently delighting our customers.

Tell us how you joined the team in a few sentences: Prior to joining the Cultivate team, I was working in D.C. as a lawyer in a regulatory affairs department. After almost two years, I was ready for a big life change. My sister called me at the end of December to tell me she saw an opening at CWM, so I decided to take a huge leap of faith and apply. I actually wrote, "Change jobs - leave my current position and start a new position at Cultivate What Matters in March" as one of the goals in my PowerSheets! (Really!) Deciding to make the switch from the legal field to Cultivate wasn't something I took lightly, but the small step of writing out that goal in my PowerSheets changed something for me. If you're feeling stuck where you are, know that you're not! Sometimes all you have to do is take that first step!


Hometown and where you live now: I'm from Fayetteville, NC and I'm currently living in Chapel Hill, NC.

Birthday: May 30

Something others might not know about you: I have a love for British television. My absolute favorite show is Call the Midwife.

Favorite part of being on the team: Working alongside such smart, passionate, and driven women that I get to call not only my team members but also my friends. In the short time I've been a member of this team, they've prayed for me, encouraged me, cheered me on, and, just recently, celebrated me as I walk into a new season of engagement! It's a joy to come to the office each day and work with these women on our shared goal of helping this incredible community of women cultivate what matters!

Favorite Cultivate Shop product: I obviously love the PowerSheets because learning to set intentional goals has been life-changing for me! But, our Write the Word for Kids Bible Journal is also a favorite of mine. Planting seeds of faith in children at an early age is something that is personally important to me. It brings me so much joy to see kiddos actively engaged in scripture and learning about God's love!

Friends, please help us give Ashlea a big CWM welcome in the comments below! She's been such a delight to our team over the past few months, and we know you are going to love her just as much as we do! You can also say hi and get to know her on Instagram! We'll be introducing you to our other new team member tomorrow!

    Hey Ashlea! I'm a huge British tv show nut as well. I think I've seen every episode of Call the Midwife at least twice. I'm so bummed that they've written the original bunch out of the show - I loved Chummy and Sister Mary Cynthia!

      Thank you so much, Tiffany! I'm so glad my story is even a tiny bit encouraging to you—that means a lot! And yes! A box of tissues is never too far away when I'm watching Call the Midwife!
