Director of Admissions
April graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2001 with a secondary social studies teaching degree. God had other plans than her using her degree as she thought when she was called into ministry early in her college career. April has served as a ministry assistant at two different churches. In 2017, she transitioned to become the School Administrative Manager of Lifegate Christian School in Omaha, NE. She joined the Valley Team in 2020.
During the summer of 2020, God called April, her husband, Dan, and their two children (Marcus is a sophomore and Kaitlynn is in 7th grade) to return to northeast Iowa to be closer to their families. During her spare time, she enjoys quilting, crafting, and reading as well as vacationing in the mountains and chasing waterfalls. The family attends Prairie Lakes Church in Cedar Falls.
April is passionate about helping parents discover the eternal benefits of a Christian education for their children!
