April was born, January 11, 1984 in Memphis, Tennessee at Baptist East Hospital.

April enjoyed playing softball, tailgating and watching her Memphis Tigers play football, cheering on the Memphis Grizzlies and spending countless hours with her family and friends. However, April’s true passions were teaching and her faith in our Lord, which guided the way in which she led her life. She would light up when she spoke about her church and her students whom she would often call her “babies”.
