The Division of Nephrology welcomes April King as our new Manager of Financial Operations overseeing our dialysis centers. She joined the division on February 1, 2021.
April has an extensive background in billing and management. She has been with WashU since 2007, working in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Physicians Billing Services. She received her bachelor’s degree in healthcare management at WashU and is currently working on her master’s in nonprofit management here as well. April is currently working with Jamie Hager, who is retiring from the financial operations position on March 5.
During her free time, and when she’s not studying, April likes to travel (when possible), shopping (of course!), cooking, and binge-watching shows on Netflix.
Jamie Hager is retiring after successfully heading our billing office for 17 years. She has been with WashU for 24 years.
As her family gets ready to welcome their third grandchild, Jamie says, “I am so lucky to get this opportunity to stay home and take care of this little one. I joke that I get to be a ‘stay-at-home’ MiMi!”
Leaving is bittersweet, however. “I will definitely miss all the great people I work with and the friendships built over the years,” says Jamie. “I truly appreciate Jodean Baldauf’s leadership and support all these years.”
We thank Jamie for all she has done for the division and wish her a fantastic retirement. We will miss you!
