Founder | President and CEO
Growing up in a rural farming community in Upstate New York, April developed a heart for the underserved which would continue into adulthood. It was during her academic career at Wegmans School of Nursing that April realized her calling in nursing was in the care of disadvantaged peoples, particularly those in the impoverished country of Haiti.
After witnessing immense poverty, lack of resources, and nonexistent healthcare in her beloved Haiti, April established The Dirt Road Project, a NYS registered 501(c)(3) located in Rochester, NY, with the dream of building communities of hope for those in need, including an urgent care center and maternal/child wellness clinic.
In her free time, April enjoys gardening, swimming, hanging out with her five children, going to movies with girlfriends, reading books from her favorite authors, and catching the latest Netflix series. She gives thanks to God for the vision He put on her heart and looks forward to the day when she hears "well done, my good and faithful servant."
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
Ephesians 3:20 NLT.
