April Dattler
Director of Clinical Operations

Chiropractic Asheville NC April DattlerApril entered the health care arena at age 16 when she became a CNA while attending North Buncombe High School. Later she decided to become an RN to help people even more. During her training, she was an honor student, Dean's List scholar and received scholarships. After completing the education while still working she decided to not take the RN test because she felt like a "pill pusher" rather than being a part of team that looks for and treats the cause of problems. She enjoys a fast pace, full-filling position and serving a purpose.

In her free time, April enjoys doing reupholstering old furniture, reading science fiction and cooking.
