April was born in Palm Springs, California then moved to Massachusetts at the age of 5. Growing up, April lived in a Christian home, raised by two loving parents where she and her siblings learned to develop structure early on in their lives. 

At the age of 24, April was waiting tables when she was given the opportunity to work and travel in the Electronic Health Record Industry. Eventually, April began consulting on her own.

April has recently started a new company called Illuminative.  It will be an apparel line set to launch in January 2019. Shouldering the weight of being a single mom, the sole bread winner, manager of a complex personal life, CEO and trying to keep a brave face on when the pain sometimes felt unbearable is how this Illuminative was birthed.   April now believes that pain is put in our life to create passion, purpose and a plan.   Life is full of challenges, however if we program ourselves to be what we believe then anything is achievable.   This brand will promote “I AM” statements all over the world and people will finally believe that “I am beautiful, I am brave, I am powerful, I am smart, I am courageous, I am loved.”

April's "I AM" statements can be read below:

"I am a lover of life and people. I truly believe that most anything is possible and love the challenge of seeing if it is. My desire is to inspire others to dream, pay it forward in every regard, and consistently live with expectancy in knowing something great is right around the corner.  I say Live to thrive and thrive to live. Be what you BELIEVE.  Create incantations for yourself and your family.  “I am Brave, I am Smart, I am Inspirational…” Have fun – laugh a lot – love fiercely. I own multiple companies, some small others worth millions. I have 4 little babies and still want more – I would have 100 babies if I could…maybe I will. I am a year and a half into being a single mom, I love to see the world and help others. I am me, and happy with that."

April has also won many awards in her short and distinguished career. In addition to being in INC Magazine many times, April was featured in the Wallstreet Journal in August of 2015, as well as the winner of Best in Biz during that same year. April was also received awards such as the Best Women Run Workplace of the Year by International Stevie Awards and the Barack Obama Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017.
