As the times evolve and women find themselves more empowered than ever, we see certain pace-setters pave the way for others to follow. At Leomhann Enterprises, a company that has always placed promotions and pay on performance rather than gender, go-getters like Ashley McMahon thrive.
Born in Wilmington, Delaware and raised there her whole life, Ashley grew up focused on 2 things: academics and gymnastics! Starting gymnastics at 2 1/2 years old, Ashley pursued the sport all through high school, even serving as a coach in her later years. A self-dubbed “nerd,” Ashley attended a math & science high school, graduating with a semester of college courses already under her belt. (Fun fact: she took Calculus 3 times in high school because she enjoyed the challenge)!
Receiving a scholarship to Oberlin College in Cleveland, Ashley fearlessly left home for the first time to pursue a degree in Religion & Politics! During her time at school, she participated in an animal activist group and worked for both the school’s library and Politics & Religion departments, keeping busy both socially and academically. Her hard work paid off and she even managed to graduate a semester early!
Immediately following graduation, Ashley went to work at a law firm in Cleveland with interest in International law and human rights. Working as a cross between an administrator and a clerk, Ashley realized after a full year that the work was in fact not for her long-term.
Looking for work that would offer her an opportunity to move past the desk and paperwork, Ashley saw Leomhann Enterprises’s Management Development Program on LinkedIn and was immediately intrigued. After a successful first and second interview, Ashley started with the company at the end of March ready to make her mark. Despite some initial challenges learning the company’s marketing & sales processes, she persevered by coming in some days an hour and a half early to receive one on one coaching from CEO, Jeff Crawford. (Amazing dedication, we know!)
