Volunteer Spotlight!

April Lehenbauer
Area Property Manager
Muskin Goralnik Properties

April has been in the business for over 34 years.  She started as an assistant manager in Durham, North Carolina.  She then returned home to St Louis where she worked in a variety of roles on-site as well as at the corporate level for two different local property management companies.  One of April’s supervisors was a past President of SLAA.  April learned a lot about volunteering at SLAA from her previous supervisor, and she continued her service by joining the local Apartment Association wherever she worked!

April later relocated to Florida.  In 2001, her property won the National HBA Property of the Year!  After moving to different cities in Florida and earning several industry designations, the hurricanes finally got to her. She decided to come back to St. Louis.  She has been overseeing apartment communities for two private owners for over ten years now, and she absolutely loves it! 

April has a passion for local and state government, fair housing, and the latest IT tech in property management software trends. April has been a part of SLAA’s Governmental Affairs Committee for several years.  Her expertise and knowledge of our industry and the mechanics of local governments go hand in hand.  Her experience is extremely valuable to our association.  She also joined the Program and Education Committee, sharing her ideas on educational seminars, and is always willing to help execute seminars.

On the home front, April spends a lot of time fitness training and doing fit conditioning with her poodle, Sir Walter Riley IV, and her doodle, Lilly.  

Being kind means responding to the needs of others!
