The art of cliff diving and organization

Let’s start by getting to know you a little better. Tell us about yourself.

My name is April Martin. I grew up in a small country town named Scurry and went to Trinity Valley College, which was also in a small town. I also have a Yorkie-poo named Louie that is very spoiled and never leaves my side! 

What’s something you love to do?

Being outdoors and taking photos. I particularly enjoy the quietness of nature.

What’s your favorite place?

Somewhere by a body of water. It doesn’t matter what kind, as long as the waves or running water can be heard. 

What do you love about the job?

Being the point person in the office to help with any needs 

What is the last thing you binge-watched?

Amazing Race

What’s your favorite book?

Relationship Goals by Michael Todd. It goes through different types of relationships from romantic, to family, to friendships. 

If you could live in any sitcom, which would it be?

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air because I love the tight-knit family.

Are you a listener or a talker?


If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Chicken fried rice. I try to make it from home, but my version of trying is just picking up a bag from Trader Joe’s and adding a bit of my own seasonings. 

If there weren’t any more computers, what would be your new occupation?

Marine biologist. The ocean is just a fascinating place. Who knows how deep the ocean really is? Even the creatures are interesting, especially the one with a light dangling in front of it. 

What’s the scariest thing you’ve done for fun?

Cliff jumping. In Hawaii, we looked at a cliff and asked each other, “want to try it?” You have to really time it to hit the waves just right. After the third or fourth time, it became less scary. 

What’s your favorite children’s story?

The Snow Day. I just really liked the story as a child. When I was little, there wasn’t really a lot of snow in Texas either.

If you had an extra hour of free time every day, what would you spend it doing?

I would spend it outdoors, alone, talking to God.

Any words of advice?

Be fearful of mediocrity. 

Why Schaefer?

This company seems very personable and seems to actually care about their employees. The interview process alone proves it!
