About April Robles
We moved to Wyoming in 2013 for the schools and fell in love with the community.
I'm originally from Michigan and have officially lived longer in the State of Ohio. I graduated from Grand Valley State University with my Bachelor's and Eastern Illinois University with my Master's degree in Education.
My husband, Dr. Richard Robles (Professor at the University of Cincinnati) and I have been married for 18 years and have 2 kids - RJ, a Freshman at Wyoming High School and Eva, a Junior at Wyoming High School. We also have a Dalmatian named Doc.
Professionally, I have been a higher education professional for over 20 years, working in areas of Career Development, Student Activities and Fraternity/Sorority Life. In these roles I've had experience with Budget, Contracts, Communication, Marketing, Event Planning, Community Building and Student Advising. I currently work at Miami University and have also worked at Xavier University and Georgia Southern University.
As part of a collaboration between Fraternity House Managers, Corporation Boards and the City of Oxford and Fire Chief, we educated residents on fire safety and reviewed city code and code enforcement. I also participated in the community Walkabouts to welcome off campus student residents for the school year and educate them on recycling, home safety, and community partnership.

I love when our community comes together to support each other
I'm the type of person that brings people together. Especially during the Pandemic, if there are ways to bring joy and a sense of togetherness despite being apart, I'm all in. I'm a "Doer" and find ways to do things that are impactful for others. I will be a good listener, ask questions and be open to different perspectives.
