Hi, I'm April!

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a psychologist and travel. My love of travel launched me into a 40+ year career as a travel professional, and I've had the pleasure of working as: a travel agent in corporate travel, Team Leader, Quality Control Leader, Operations Supervisor, Online Booking Tool Configurations Specialist, Account Services Specialist, Implementations Manager, and Vice President of Account Services. Additionally, I've worked with all GDS' and seven online booking tools. This experience has helped me see the big picture, while believing “it takes a village” to be successful.  


My life mottos have always been: “You can accomplish anything if you want it badly enough” and “You’re never too old to succeed”. At age 57, I completed my doctorate in Psychology. This knowledge has allowed me to better understand clients' wants and needs to support and partner with them to be successful. 


I am a bi-coastal woman, born and bred in New Jersey and now living in Southern California.  The beach is my happy place and my favorite place to visit is Europe – the history, people, and food are magical. I love taking photos of trees, cemeteries, and random cats. My husband and I share our life with our 4 children with paws (cats).
