April Adams Pertuis is the founder and creator of LIGHTbeamers — a highly engaged community of women who are on a journey to tell their story. April uses her skills as a writer and video producer to teach others how to tap into their own personal story to shine a positive light in the world. Her philosophy is “everyone has a story” and she’s fascinated with getting to the Core of what that story is. April’s career spans more than 30 years as an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared on CBS Television, HGTV, Food Network, Huff Post, Elephant Journal and numerous private industries where she has interviewed thousands of people and crafted their story as a result. One of her favorite components of storytelling is piecing the puzzle together to craft a compelling, emotional and meaningful message that touches others. No matter what the business is, what the product is, what the service is — the heart of people is always what matters! April leads retreats and workshops throughout the year to teach women how to tell their story in a more authentic way so they can reach more customers, attract new clients, grow their audience, and ultimately tap into their true, personal power.
Her motto is “when we share our stories, we shine our light” — and her goal is to have more women rise up and use their voice, and share more openly their journey so that it may inspire others to do the same. Stories are the woven fabric that build Community, and April is on a mission to grow a Community of LIGHTbeamers — sharing their stories and shining a light into the world.
