April became IonE Associate Administrator after working in finance and grants management in the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences. Her role includes assisting with program implementation, managing finance and HR workflows within IonE, assisting with the preaward process, and managing internal IonE and IREE grants. She started her career in purchasing and contracts management while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Between then and now, she has moved across the country and overseas and ended up right back where she started.
With a busy growing family, April loves to make time for gardens full of food and flowers.
