Best part of CR Media: Love the talented team here – and love the ability to work creatively to address the challenges of all products for every aspect of the company.

Favorite things: April is passionate about design and the role psychology plays between design and consumers. Besides eating, sleeping and breathing design (and to use the other side of her brain), she has a huge passion for horses and competing.
