Our Team

Nip Tuck Remodeling Owner April Bettinger knows how to build an expert team around her for maximum client satisfaction. We have an experienced team on the administrative side of the business to deliver legendary customer service, as well as a collaborative team of exceptional craftsman and trade partners.


April Bettinger

Owner and Founder

For the past 25 years, April Bettinger has carved out for herself a respected niche in the construction industry. Her father was a custom homebuilder in this area during the 70s and 80s, so she grew up watching and learning about excellent customer service and what it takes to build a high-quality project. 

Throughout her career in construction, April has held key roles in finance, budgeting, customer service, team building, and sales management preparing her to own & operate her own company.  Nip Tuck Remodeling was founded in 2010 on the heals of the recession with a vision and determination to create a construction company with extraordinary craftsmanship AND a focus on professionalism.  She is driven to make a difference in the construction industry and leads her company with vision & purpose.  She is known to tell you like it is and approaches each and every person she meets with authenticity.

When not in the office, you can find April enjoying the outdoors with her life partner, Baer and their two dogs, Yogi & Lucy.
