April began her career in social service as a volunteer over 15 years ago. She started out working with survivors of sexual assault for a nonprofit in Salt Lake City where she took crisis calls, worked with a hospital response team and provided educational training for local schools. Out of that experience a passion was born and April continued her education and experience within the social work field. Throughout her career, April has worked with women survivors of domestic violence, as part of a workforce development team for the homeless and most recently, with homeless families who were rebuilding their lives and working towards self-sufficiency.
April brings with her a strong working knowledge of the issues surrounding vulnerable populations and believes strongly that people succeed when they are treated as assets to society rather than a liability. As an advocate for change, April utilizes the concepts of self-awareness and personal accountability in order to help those she serves build the foundation necessary to move forward on the path towards self-sufficiency.
