April was born and raised in Los Angeles, and has always loved working with community-based organizations. Since graduating from Cal State Long Beach, with a B.A in Geography, April has been committed to connecting people to resources and advocating for environmental health. She has over five years of experience working in underserved communities and has helped implement pilot projects, such as the Water LA program, to help communities become more climate-resilient through the power of nature based solutions and community advocacy. Currently, April serves the North East Los Angeles area by assisting in the implementation of waste prevention techniques and guiding the community on proper recycling and food rescue practices. When April is not out exploring new food in her community she enjoys taking weekend camping trips to disconnect from the busy bustle of city life.
