April has been in the industry for over 3 years. She cares most about her family and traveling. She chose this industry because it gives her the ability to share her passion in an artistic and creative environment. Her favorite part about working with a guest is opening their eyes to their full potential and watching them strive for success. She is inspired by creativity, beauty, and individuality. Her proudest moment in the industry was watching her first recruit reach her goal and become a stylist at a high-end salon. She loves that the Aveda Institute Portland is committed to the community and supports those who are in it.
