April came to Washington, DC to work in bipartisan politics, beginning her career at Quinn Gillespie and Associates, where she learned the value of collaboration over division before moving into the legal field, where she worked in electronic discovery and legal technology instruction at both Arnold & Porter and Capital One.

An active and engaged parent of Loudoun County Public School students, April has served in multiple leadership positions for Algonkian District-based Parent-Teacher Associations.
