A talk with April Giles, Vice President of Business Development, Fitzsimons Innovation Community

By: Fitzsimons Innovation Community

The first time April Giles, Vice President of Business Development for Fitzsimons Innovation Community, spent real time on the University of Colorado School of Medicine campus she was in elementary school. At the time, her mom was one of three women in her medical school class and the only student in the program who had young children. Giles and her sister would often spend time in the halls of the university doing homework or exploring while their mom was in class or clinic. When we talked with Giles about Women’s History Month and how she is shaping leadership and strategy at Fitzsimons Innovation Community, she was quick to bring up that her mom had set an early example of what it looks like for women to push boundaries, break barriers, and pursue their dreams.
