  • Became a mom at age 42, a dream come true
  • Traveled the world and lived in Miami for four years

After receiving a psychology degree from San Diego State University, April worked for the Polinsky Center in San Diego. She pursued a successful career in sales with ADP for 15 years, while achieving President’s Club for 11 years. April and her husband Brent owned a South African beef jerky company, California Biltong. She is also a health and wellness coach as well as a Savvi distributor.



Keeping up with her very active 10-year-old, you can find April at the beach with family and friends, hiking Crystal Cove, power walking, doing yoga, riding bikes, or grilling with friends. She loves snowboarding, and has been known to catch a few waves, but her board hasn’t been in the water for a long time. Music, dancing and traveling are must haves, too.
