April is the marketing team member who spearheads marketing activities for GeoEngineers’ Spokane, Boise, Pendleton, Portland and Salt Lake City offices. She says that marketing is all about connecting people, building relationships and finding great ways to promote the company. To connect with Spokane’s business community, April is an active member of several marketing and regional organizations. She is the president and programs co-chair of Marketing Associates of Spokane, and on the marketing and public works outreach committee for the American Public Works Association Washington State Chapter.

Energetic and versatile, April tackles everything from business development and outreach to public involvement campaigns. She works with GeoEngineers’ technical leads to craft winning project proposals and propose teams whose experience and capabilities best fit the client’s needs. Asked about her role, April replied, “It’s the strategic conversations, relationship building, creative brainstorming sessions and constant variety that excite me for each new proposal, meeting, presentation or event.”

Connecting people is as important to April in her free time as it is at work. She and her husband and daughter love to entertain and often have friends over for good food and game nights. When she’s not busy with her family or church community, April enjoys playing sports and spending time outdoors. She’s also famously passionate about Starbucks coffee.
