PCOM, specifically the San Diego campus, was ranked 2nd in the nation for top schools in the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2010 while they were attending. In addition to her current career as a physician, April is celebrating her 20th year as a professional entertainer. Upon completion of their degrees, she and her sister decided to return to their former home and open a clinic to serve their community. Carrying on her love for theater simultaneously while operating her practice full time, you may see April onstage in Legends in Concert as an entertainer, or touring with her husband, Magical Entertainer, Aaron Radatz.

April traveled monthly to Los Angeles, California for post-graduate school at Yo San University, to receive her doctoral degree. This specialty is in Reproductive Health and the program integrated advanced Western and Eastern diagnostics and treatment protocols for the effective management of men’s and women’s reproductive health dysfunctions and disorders. Her original capstone research was on the topic of “The Effectiveness of Traditional Chinese Medicine for Postpartum Depression”, and was inspired by a patient in her private practice as this disorder affects more than just mothers. Postpartum depression can affect the children as infants and adolescents, and TCM offers hope to these cases. We invite you to read her research:
