April began her career in the insurance in May 2006, where she learned the ins and outs of the industry in a service and sales role for a small insurance agency in Commerce, Texas. She has helped independent agents on a local, state, and even national level ever since. After graduating from Texas A&M University – Commerce with a B.B.A. in Marketing in 2009, she gained further sales training and experience at Travelers before coming to CoVerica in November 2010.
April began as a personal lines sales producer, focusing on building a book of business in Houston and in DFW but has worn multiple hats since. In 2016, she joined CAA as our first Agency Development Field Specialist and is now a Personal Lines Sales Mentor, where she actively uses her marketing, sales and business development knowledge to help our member agents strategically and profitably grow their book of business. April’s background with independent agencies and corporate sales allows her to better identify and assist the needs of clients and agencies on a daily basis. She also leads our Personal Lines & Commercial Lines AccessPlus team.
Of all aspects of her position, connecting with our member agents and assisting them with unique challenges that require creative problem-solving skills is what she cherishes most. April also coordinates and organizes our quarterly Circle of Excellence (COE) meetings, which allows our agent advisory board the opportunity to further develop our network through the use of specific and necessary resources and planning initiatives.
Understanding the importance of community, April enjoys volunteering with local organizations and her church family on a continuous basis. She once led CoVerica volunteer efforts with Dallas LIFE and enjoys assisting in local and state relief efforts when weather catastrophes strike. She is happily married with two boys, Eli and Axton. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, photography, visiting local parks with her family, watching her oldest in various sporting events, and traveling domestically and internationally.
