As a civil engineer and urban planner, April works on a variety of public infrastructure projects. She helps teams identify opportunities for sustainable or resilient design principles—like elucidating future climate impacts, considering waste streams, or incorporating green stormwater infrastructure.
Passionate about street safety and active mobility, April is known for her work to create a “car lite, mobility rich” future. Currently, she is leading a team to re-imagine the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway corridor and incorporate freight movement into safe street design. She also co-leads the Lower Manhattan Coastal Resilience Project at the Battery and is conducting research on resilience in river-adjacent communities. April co-authored a paper about using nature-based systems for climate adaptation that will be published in an upcoming Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (ACEC) book.
April is a lover of cycling and traveling, having visited 63 countries and counting! When in New York, she and her husband host bike rides to explore the city’s infrastructure—always, of course, ending at a brewery.
