April Wilson Smith graduated from Yale with a degree in history, focusing on church history. She holds a Master of Public Health from Thomas Jefferson University, where the focus of her research is helping people deal with addiction, whether it’s to substances, behaviors, or devices. She is a Certified SMART (Self-Management and Recovery Training) Recovery Facilitator and founder of the first open SMART meeting in Philadelphia. She is also the Director of Organizational Development for Harm Reduction, Abstinence and Moderation Support, a worldwide organization that helps members change their drinking. She believes in the power of people to free themselves from addiction by finding their true purpose in life and connection with others, and is excited to join Madlin in helping families reconnect and save the next generation from becoming digital zombies!
April lives with a little black rescue cat who will never, ever, have a smartphone.
