Transitioning from a successful career in retail to corporate America and eventually embarking on my own entrepreneurial path, I've certainly had a transformative journey.
I've become empowered to take control of my own professional destiny, unleash deeper creativity, pursue my passions, and make a tangible impact on small businesses worldwide. Through determination, resilience, and a relentless pursuit of excellence, I aspire to blaze my own trail while inspiring others with their entrepreneurial journey.
Where It Began
My career started in retail, where I honed my skills in managing a bustling clothing store. From merchandising to team leadership, I learned the ins and outs of providing exceptional customer service. Today, that focus on putting clients first is still at the heart of everything I do.
Welcome To Start-Ups
I entered the world of generalist roles, where I wore many hats and built my skills across diverse industries, from e-commerce and agtech management to non-profits. Though the responsibilities varied, they all had one thing in common: improving operational processes and driving efficiency across distributed teams.
After a period of soul-searching, I discovered my true calling in legal operations. For more than a decade, I worked tirelessly to streamline processes, manage complex projects, and deliver results that exceeded expectations. That experience shaped me into the professional I am today.
Operations In Tech
With a background in both executive support and corporate operations, I've developed a deep understanding of what it takes to drive success at the highest levels of the tech industry. Whether I'm working with a pre-IPO startup or a publicly traded corporation, I bring a keen eye for detail, a collaborative approach, and a commitment to delivering results. From managing complex projects to streamlining operational processes, I've helped organizations achieve their goals and reach new heights of success.
Focused Executive Support
After more than a decade of mastering a wide range of tasks and responsibilities, I decided to focus my talents on providing high-level executive support. That journey took me on a global adventure, working with leaders in diverse industries and cultures.
Force Multiplier & BizOps Meet
With a background in executive support and operational management, I've always been drawn to the intersection of these two critical functions. But it wasn't until I discovered project management that I truly found my niche. Over the course of my career, I've had the opportunity to build a PMO from scratch and scale operations for a fast-paced fintech company, delivering results that have helped these organizations grow and succeed.
April Eldridge Consulting is Born!
After experiencing an unfortunate layoff, I had an epiphany - with remote work becoming more commonplace, why not offer my specialized expertise to SMBs and entrepreneurs on a fractional basis? Recognizing that these businesses require executive-level support but may not be able to afford full-time staff, I integrated with their teams to manage their business needs and provide operational management as they scaled.
So, Who is April?
Eternal Optimist & Lover of Chocolate
Hello! I'm April. I'm blessed with two wonderful children who have shaped my life in countless ways. My spouse and I have been happily married for twenty years, and we currently reside in the outskirts of Raleigh, NC, with our beloved cat, Luna, and our newest family member, Bucky - a Mini Bernadoodle. Please note that raising a puppy requires a great deal of time and effort!
Most of the time, I'm an extrovert who thrives on social interaction and the excitement of new experiences. But every now and then, I need to recharge my batteries and retreat to my happy place: a cozy dinner at home with my family, followed by a low-key movie night. It's the perfect balance of connection and introspection, and it leaves me feeling refreshed and content.
I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we have two beautiful children. They are my everything.
