District Governor 2018-2019
April Clark joined the Jacksonville Rotary Club in August, 1999. Like many Rotarians, she joined for professional and business reasons, expecting networking opportunities. Instead, with the urging of her friend and Rotary mentor, Vanessa Ervin, she became involved in service work, chairing the Caring for Kids program, where she found the perfect outlet to devote her enthusiasm for service work.
April’s vocation has primarily been in the sales arena. She worked for sixteen plus years in the wireless industry for both GTE Mobilenet and US Cellular. She led sales teams in the retail, corporate and reseller distribution channels. Pursuing her passion for the outdoors, travel and yoga, she owned and operated an eco-tourism business with a full service yoga/wellness center in Swansboro, North Carolina. April is committed to her service to Rotary, taking two years from the work force to spend in “active service.” She is engaged in her community and serves on the following boards: Jacksonville-Onslow Sports Commission, Swansboro Historical Preservation Commission, North Carolina Coastal Federation and the Carolina Museum of the Marine.
April served as club president in 2012-13 and immediately following her term, became the Assistant Governor for Area 2. She is a Paul Harris Society member and a Rotary Leadership Institute graduate. She has taken part in three National Immunization Days in India to help eradicate polio. April is a long time resident of Onslow County. She graduated from Jacksonville High School, has an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and holds a Master of Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Currently enrolled in a Leadership and Volunteer Management Certificate Program at North Carolina State University.
April is a certified yoga instructor and resides in Swansboro with her husband Jeff. Her daughter, Grace, is a student an UNCW.
