Aprill gives great credit to her life experience, which she believes allows her to connect with many women on many different levels. Aprill’s mother died at the age of 42 from multiple myeloma cancer, when Aprill was only 13 years old. She grew up fast, getting pregnant in high school and having her first child at the age of 18. She later lost a full academic scholarship to college. For many years, Aprill lived a chaotic life—being in unhealthy, toxic relationships and struggling to find her way. She feels that her past is what has positioned her for success in her future. As she says, “My story is God’s glory!” Aprill is a smart, determined, ambitious leader who is ready to help women eliminate their obstacles, reclaim their lives and get their happy back.
