April is the founder, owner, CEO, and Head Boss Babe of Occasions by Dress Gallery. She started in the bridal world over 2 decades ago with a dream, determination, and a WHOLE BUNCH of mother’s gowns. Over the years, she’s flourished her business into a thriving staple of the Wichita community. You can usually see her running all over the store to assist our team wherever needed. April is a graduate of Pittsburg State University, where she met the love of her life, Jason. They got married in 2001, and instead of children they opted to raise cows on the side. April is a fitness enthusiast and an avid traveler, constantly jet-setting around the globe to check off countries from her bucket list. As much as she can, she loves to visit her home in Taiwan and introduce her loved ones to her family back there.




From interning to managing, Avery has been working hand in hand with Dress Gallery for several years. She received her undergraduate in Fashion Merchandising from a university ranking in the top five for her degree, then moved to Los Angeles where she worked several years for a bridal designer handling PR, event coordination, and social media. She is excited to be back in her hometown and provide shoppers the best experience for their special occasions!
