April has worked professionally in Student Affairs for five amazing years, but she originally discovered her passion for supporting college students as a student leader at The College of New Jersey, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Communications Studies with a minor in Marketing. Following that, she worked in the Residence Life department at Syracuse University before eventually attending Teachers College, Columbia University and earning her master’s degree in Higher and Post-Secondary Education. While in graduate school, she had the absolute pleasure of interning in the Student Engagement office at Manhattan School of Music. While here she loved connecting with students, learning about their passions for the arts, and discovering ways that she could help them build community on campus. She served as the Advisor for the Student Council and the Black Student Union. She loved being able to help build inclusion and celebrate MSM traditions. She has spent the past four years working at Seton Hall University where she served as a Residence Hall Director, Area Coordinator, and most recently as an Assistant Director of the Residence Life department. She enjoys assisting students through their college journey, developing student leaders, and helping to give students a home away from home.
