About this event

Presenting Sponsor CalViva Health is honored to partner with Marjaree Mason Center to host the 38th Annual Top Ten Professional Women and Leading Business Awards, a prestigious awards ceremony honoring local professionals, will recognize outstanding individuals in our community while also raising awareness about domestic violence in Fresno County and beyond. This event pays tribute to ten women who have served as role models and given back to their communities, all while making strides in their professions. One business is also honored as the Leading Business of the Year for its support of women and women's issues.

We're excited to announce this year's speaker, sponsored by Valley Children's Healthcare, will be April Hernandez-Castillo.

April Hernandez Castillo’s dream became a reality when she booked her first commercial as the “Yo girl” in the Visa Check Card spot starring Yao Ming and Yogi Berra. The commercial would air for the Super Bowl and become a sports classic. She then went on to star in television shows such as; Law & Order: SVU, The Following, Person of Interest, and Elementary. April garnered a recurring role on Showtime’s Dexter which she was nominated for a SAG nomination for Best Ensemble cast. April is most noted for her powerful portrayal as “Eva Benitez” in the hit movie Freedom Writers starring Oscar- winner Hilary Swank. She recently worked on NBC’s popular show, New Amsterdam and is now filming FOX’s hit show, The Prodigal Son.

April has also graced a different stage as a public speaker. Her message of resilience, overcoming adversity, and the ability to move beyond trauma has taken April on a journey across the United States and internationally. Reaching an array of audiences from high schools, universities and conferences, she has spoken on some of the most prestigious stages starting from Harvard University, Q Conference to her biggest stage to date, TEDx.
