April is a meditation instructor, adjunct faculty, advocate, writer, veteran, and mom. Her written work can be found on her blog www.sometimesihatemycat.com, and in the Purple Sparks Journal, an annual journal of poetry by sexual assault survivors which raises money for “youthSpark Voices.”

She is a member of RAINN’s Speakers Bureau, and she recently participated in, and contributed poetry to, the film Hold Me Right, a documentary about childhood sexual abuse. Her area of interest is the intersection between meditation, creativity, and vocal advocacy and their use together as tools for public awareness, and for individual management of PTSD symptoms and recovery from sexual trauma. She obtained her MAMS (Master of Applied Meditation Studies) from The Won Institute of Graduate Studies and was a meditation instructor there for the community for several years. Additionally, she created and taught a Masters class which explored the intersection of language, creativity, and practice. She has also instructed meditation at Penn State Abington, for faculty and staff; and at Intercommunity Action, LLC, for adults in the Philadelphia area with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

She obtained her RN/BSN from the University of Florida and practiced in the fields of Medical/Surgical, Same Day Surgery, and Labor & Delivery. She is also a veteran Captain of the United States Air Force where she served, as an active duty member and as a reservist, for 6 years.
