April was born and raised in Southern Oklahoma and is a 2003 graduate of Ringling High School. After high school, she moved to Norman to attend the University of Oklahoma, where she was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority and a Student Athletic Trainer for the OU football team for 3 years. She graduated from OU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology in 2008. She then went on to earn two more degrees, a Master’s Degree in Sports Administration from East Central University in 2010 and a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in 2013.
She practiced Dental Hygiene in Ardmore for almost 5 years before she decided to pursue a career in medicine. She knew she needed more of a challenge and also had a deep desire to care for people more completely. So, it was in 2018 that April entered the Master of Physician Assistant Studies Program at Oklahoma City University. She graduated from this program with High Honors in May of 2020.
She began practicing as a Family Medicine Physician Assistant in August of 2020 and loves being able to care for people right where she grew up! She has a heart for Family Medicine and considers it a blessing to be able to provide high-quality, thoughtful, comprehensive care to the people in this area. In particular, she enjoys building lasting relationships with her patients and their families, helping them achieve their health and wellness goals, and practicing preventive medicine.
She is incredibly excited about the opportunity to practice in a direct primary care model as this allows her to care for people even more completely, without the rush. It will also allow her to be more available to her patients, both of which is what she has always desired to do.
In her free time, you will find April spending time with her husband, her two boys and her parents. They all enjoy attending church, sports of any kind, card and board games, hiking and exploring, and experiencing all kinds of new things together.
