April is a board-certified family nurse practitioner. She has spent much of her career in community health settings, providing primary care to complex patients. Her practice was unfulfilling because of the scarcity of resources and a schedule that left inadequate time to effectively care for people. This experience, accompanied by her frustration with the limitations of conventional medicine, attracted her to integrative care.
Integrative care is a whole-person approach that acknowledges the many factors that contribute to an overall state of well-being. April strives to partner with her patients by developing robust relationships that allow her to understand their needs, values and priorities. Her commitment to these relationships is evident in the length of her appointments and in the consistent support she provides.
April combines the best conventional care and the latest advances in predictive, preventive, and personalized medicine and uses all appropriate evidence-based prevention, treatment and supportive approaches. She emphasizes lifestyle interventions, such as nutrition, movement, sleep, stress reduction, and work-life balance, to enhance one’s innate ability to heal.
April obtained her undergraduate degree from Loyola University in Chicago and her master’s degree from Creighton University in Omaha. She is continuing her education through the Institute of Functional Medicine in order to offer more diverse and comprehensive treatment options to her patients.
