EXPERIENCE Ashleigh Messervy joined Provence Messervy in 2016 after spending more than a decade as a television news anchor and report in Columbia, South Carolina. After studying Broadcast Journalism at the University of South Carolina, Ashleigh began her career as a journalist at WACH FOX News where she was a editor and photographer. It wasn't long before her career began taking off as she would within a year become on-air talent for both morning and evening broadcasts. As the station's morning anchor, Ashleigh's day would begin at 2:30am, which made for some very long days! After more than three years, she moved to WLTX, the CBS affiliate in Columbia, where she served as both an news anchor/reporter, but she was often charged with covering events such as the Gamecock's victory over #1 ranked Alabama, USC's trip to the SEC Championship and more!
When Ashleigh isn't answering phones, building websites, managing social media accounts or planning future marketing efforts, you can find her doing pretty much anything her colleagues need. However, her time out of the office is quite simple as she enjoys taking care of her niece and nephews, working out and hanging out with friends. Even though she was born and raised in Summerville, Ashleigh currently resides in Mount Pleasant, which makes her drive to our Daniel Island office much better!
