Originally from the suburbs of Boston, Ashley knows how to make “wicked” good content that has been showcased in various industries. With her experiences ranging from manufacturing, tech start up and health companies, Ashley’s 10-year marketing career has been anything but boring! Her experience in email marketing, targeted content creation, social media strategy is just the tip of what she can do.
Ashley earned her MBA from Babson College and a B.S. in Marketing from Bridgewater State University. When she is not glued to her work she is most likely practicing yoga or exploring a new place because she found a last-minute cheap flight.

Jill Alexander, Senior Writer
Jill can't seem to stay away from Zander Consulting for very long. She takes breaks every now and again to pursue non-profit and higher education work, but returns to dabble in Zander Consulting projects.
All of the writing and editing produced by ZC goes through Jill at some point. She is able to identify the needs of the audience and write specifically to them. Jill also writes editorials and press releases for the local media, is part of the survey development team, and chronicles activities of key communicator groups. She is also a diligent researcher.
Jill loves animals, sings in a local choir and spends as much time as she can with her three 20+ year old sons and entertaining husband.
Jill earned her M.A. in Corporate and Organizational Communication from Fairleigh Dickinson University and a B.A. in Psychology from Montclair State College.
