Ashley Howard has always been a person with multiple jobs and has moved around while learning many trades along the way. Her journey with the grocery and food industry began in 2011 when she was hired by a southern California food broker. Ashley was assigned the position of deli/bakery technician for the Food4Less chain.
Ashley learned to cake decorate as well as other aspects of the deli and bakery. Shortly afterward she was assigned as a trainer visiting stores throughout Southern California for both cake and bake production. Setting up deli cases and training on food safety was also part of the job. In addition Ashley organized and put on a number of food shows, worked on schematics, and supported grand openings and remodels.
In 2013, Ashley transitioned out of the field and into the office. In 2015 she was offered a position as vendor support at the Stater Brothers corporate office in the deli/bakery department. Ashley now assists two buyers, one director, and one vice president for the retailer.
Ashley is married with two children. In her spare time she is a natural childbirth educator and doula for The Bradley Method.

Before joining Le Grand Marketing, Jan Draper worked in the financial and real estate industries, primarily in human relations management.
Jan believes in cultivating a positive work environment that is supportive of the employee. Previous work with a real estate sales force highlighted the challenges a mobile, sales-oriented business faces, primarily with training and employee development. Jan has worked hard to make both of these areas her strengths. Creating policy and procedures must speak to every employee and mirror corporate culture. That is among Jan's goals as well as working with management to provide guidance in the ever changing HR landscape.
Jan lives in Anaheim with her husband Marc and their two dogs. Most nights, after long walks, you can find Jan in her office polishing her latest fiction manuscript.
