April has served as a first-year academic advisor and the Summer Bridge Coordinator at Briar Cliff since 2016. Previously, she completed an assistantship teaching speech communication course labs and working as a tutor in the University of South Dakota's Upward Bound program. She really enjoys working with students one-on-one and teaching in the classroom in order to allow students a space to explore ideas and opportunities.  

Outside of work, April enjoys tending to her flower garden, drinking copious amounts of tea, and exploring new places with her camera.
