April Brownlee is a professional fundraiser and freelance writer. She was born and raised in the Panhandle, holds a degree in mass communications and started her career in TV news. Married and mom to three kids age 9, 6 and 4 April likes to joke that in her "spare time" she gets to take a shower. But in all actuality, April is a book nerd, a wanna-be chef with absolutely no knife skills, a reality TV junkie, a follower of all things political, and a shop-a-holic. A fan of the "knowledge is power" mantra, April also likes to chat about two subjects that are very close to her--food allergies and children with special needs.
