After getting her Bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida, April decided to enter the world of claims as a 3rd generation claims adjuster. It didn’t take long for her employers to realize that she had an uncanny knack for the business. Whether it was the influence of her father and grandfather before her, or just “women’s intuition”, it worked. Her career quickly moved through handling Personal Auto claims with Direct General and AIG, to attending Auto Appraisers School in Atlanta, after which she was fortunate to take her place “in the field” handling Auto BI and Property claims while simultaneously completing both field and drive-in auto appraisal assignments for her peers.
In early 2007 April joined The Travelers Insurance Company handling both Personal and Business Auto claims on a nationwide basis. Shortly thereafter, following a company-wide reorganization, she was selected from more than 30 internal candidates to move into Workers' Compensation where she quickly re-secured her future in claims. By January 2010, her father convinced her to join AE21 as the Director of Business Development where she applies her knowledge and claim skills in the creative development of online multimedia adjuster licensing and claims training courses. As an active member of Generation Y (or Millennials), her understanding of the current needs of a whole new breed of adjuster is a key ingredient in the creation of interesting, interactive, and meaningful online learning that will revolutionize adjuster training for the future.
April is a 3-time “Tough Mudder”, a “Sparta Cross-Fight” 1st Degree Black Belt and an avid proponent of the Paleo diet as a way to stay lean, strong, and energetic. By her accomplishments, she’s proof that it too works!
