is the SVP of Public Policy at hims
& hers. Prior to taking this position, she worked as the
Director of Public Policy at Lyft, where she negotiated new
regulations for the ride-share industry back in her home state of
Texas. April grew up outside of Houston before heading to North
Carolina to earn her bachelor’s degree from Duke University; she
later earned her J.D. at Georgetown University.
While studying at Georgetown, she realized that she wanted to
forego the white-shoe law firm route and focus instead on public
policy. In part one of this conversation, April reflects on her
time as a law student, discusses her experience as a Law Clerk at
the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission,
and shares some of what she learned during her time as the
Public Policy Director at Lyft during the early 2010s.
Be sure to tune in next week when we share part two of our
conversation with April, in which we’ll focus on her work at hims
& hers and how her previous experience has helped her succeed
in her current position.
