April Whitlock CEO & Majority Owner , Fundanoodle

April is a graduate of Duke University and began her career with Grey Advertising in Chicago. She caught the entrepreneurial bug and returned home to Charlotte as the 32nd employee and 7 year veteran of LendingTree.com. In 2006, she launched the Charlotte office of Mom Corps, a start-up focusing on career and professional development. Two years later, April was recruited by Carolina Pad to develop and launch the Studio C brand and the company’s first ever consumer marketing campaign. April took over the management of the Fundanoodle product line in 2011. In 2013, she successfully raised capital to establish Fundanoodle as an independent company.

April resides in the historic Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband, her three daughters and their sweet Dixie-dog. She is an active volunteer at her church, her children’s school and with local non-profits that support homeless and abused children.
