April was born and raised in Belleville, KS. While living there she received an Associate of Science degree from Cloud County Community College. Belleville is also where her three wonderful children were born. She has two beautiful daughters, Veronica and Vanessa and a lovable son, Devin. After moving to Clay Center in 2008, her family underwent a difficult divorce, but The Lord was ready to redeem the hardship.

April's faith was strengthened as Jesus led her to the Covenant Church through caring neighbors, and once there He led her into strong friendships where she was able to grow and heal. April began working at Ray's Apple Market in 2008 and while working there she met and fell in love with an incredible man, Travis. They were married in 2010.

April began working as a paraprofessional at CCCHS in 2011, and has been there helping in math and science classrooms for the past five years.April has been a small group leader and an active member of the ESV Drama Troupe for the last few years. She is excited to begin working as the Children's Ministry Coordinator for 2nd through 5th graders, and seeing what The Lord has planned next. Her motto is "Perseverance through Adversity".
