I’m April and I help people live a life filled with confidence, productivity and mindfulness!
I am a graduate from the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Education. During my teaching career of 12 years I had the privilege to help many families. From that experience I developed my coaching program, The 8 Elements Approach, which is a unique combination of my training in mindfulness, stress, relationships and human development.
In my career I have had many opportunities to both gain and share knowledge:
Invited presenter at the Neurosequential Model Symposium in Banff, Alberta. Teaching Faculty for the ChildTrauma Academy
Workshop Facilitator at the Bridging the Hearts and Minds of Youth Conference in San Diego, California
Graduate of the Year-Long Mindful Educator Program through Mindful Schools in California
Certified Trainer of the Circle of Security Attachment-based Parenting Program
Certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher through Santosha Yoga Schools in Indonesia
Lead Trauma-Informed Instructor for Peaceful World Yoga Teacher Training in Colorado
Invited presenter to St Albert Catholic Schools, Edmonton Catholic Schools and the University of Alberta
Special Needs Coordinator at Aboriginal Head Start
As I continue my journey of growth and learning, my mission is to help others do the same. I firmly believe that it is our duty on this earth to share our knowledge with others. My vision is that mindfulness becomes a way of life that is accessible to all, regardless of economic standing, race, religion or personal identification. I want people to lead a life of happiness, success and fulfillment and I firmly believe that mindfulness can help do that.
I would love the opportunity to share this knowledge and experience with you.
Talk to you soon,
