April Tyrrell

As a graduate of the Event Management Post-Graduate Certificate program at Niagara College, April has an understanding of the needs of the students and strives to make their experience positive. April teaches in the Event Management program and Brewmaster and Brewery Operations program as a faculty advisor to students planning and executing live events.

She appreciates the importance of students learning the fundamentals of event management in a classroom, knowing they’ll then be applying these newly acquired skills in industry; often the very next day.

In addition to her experience within the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Sport, April has also worked on campus creating, planning and executing events in the Teaching Winery and Teaching Brewery.  She has also completed a contract with Bethlehem Housing and Support Services to plan their signature fundraiser, Empty Bowls.  In addition, April has volunteered on committees to plan the Brain Injury Association of Niagara’s, Food for Thought Gala, as well as, Alivia’s Rainbows’, Toonie Toss fundraising event.  In her free time, April enjoys supporting her kids in their extracurricular activities, spending time with family and friends around the table with good food and wine.
