As a life-long Seattleite, Anthony is continually amazed at how much sunshine there is in New England and the abundance of days that affords him down by the river to fly fish.

Prior to joining FIT, April worked in both the corporate and agency side of the recruiting industry as a Human Resource leader with a specialization in workers compensation, FMLA and leave of absences. This combination of skills and industry knowledge gives April a leg up in the industry and a full understanding of what it means to match the right candidates with the right leaders. April believes that “Hiring people is an art, not a science, and resumes can’t tell you whether someone will fit into a company’s culture.” – Howard Schulz
