April Collier

Director of Finance and Human Resources

Loyal & Exemplary

I am from Belwood, Ontario, Canada and I attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. I earned a BS in Journalism, Advertising and an AA in Religious Studies. I’ve been with L&E and in the market research industry since 2008. I really enjoy my role within L&E because I am a firm believer that we should never stop learning. I learn something new every single day in my job, and because of that, I feel like I’m becoming smarter, wiser and ultimately an all ‘round better person. I also love working with numbers. My husband laughs at me because I can tell you every single phone number we have ever had since we were married, all of my family members’ Social Security numbers, license plate numbers (we have 5 cars!), etc. I guess you could say I’m a numbers girl!

Outside of work, I love movies, theater and dance – probably because I could never see myself doing any of them, and yet when I watch them, I get totally immersed and engrossed. I love learning the history of how famous buildings, architectural monuments or famous structures were built and/or designed. I love meeting and talking with extremely bright people or people that have done amazing things with their lives because they remind me how much more there is to learn in life and how much one life can make a difference.

Insights About Me:
My favorite food is…well it might be easier to say what food I DON’T like! But if I had to say one dish, it would definitely be macaroni and cheese.
If I had a super power, I would like to be invisible. I would love to be able to listen in on conversations or create havoc without any consequences.
My guilty pleasure is a Chocolate! While I will eat chocolate with nuts, caramel, nugget, and/or fruit in it, my most favorite kind is just plain milk chocolate. It is my nemesis!
It would be impossible for me to give up being able to see God’s amazing creation, especially the faces of those I love.
