The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management prides itself on being made up of a diverse range of professionals from across the graduate business education and corporate landscapes. Our Board of Trustees is no exception, with representatives from each of our 20 member schools as well as alumni and leaders from some of our corporate partner companies.
Through this monthly series, we encourage you to go behind the scenes with us to get to know members of our Board of Trustees, beyond just their professional titles, as they respond to a series of fun, thought-provoking questions. This month, get to know Consortium Alumni Representative April L. Taylor.
April L. Taylor, Consortium Alumni Representative
Kelly School of Business ’08
If you didn’t have to work, how would you spend your time?
Teaching Russian history. I’m fascinated with czars and czarinas.
What is your most unusual or interesting skill or hobby?
I’m a certified yoga teacher. Corporate can be stressful, and yoga has been my outlet. I appreciate the calm, strength and mental balance it provides.
How do you start your day every morning?
I recently started a new habit — I start each day with exercise and my gratitude journal.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received?
You can’t do it all! (I remind myself of this often, especially when I feel overwhelmed.)
When it comes to food, what is your guilty pleasure?
French fries, YUM!!!
What is the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
Cliff diving at Rick’s Cafe in Jamaica. I can’t swim, but I do a really good job pretending. Everybody else did, so why not me, too!
