Recognized for her real-time research and program strategies that help organizations mobilize and respond to opportunities, Angela Turner brings together a team of Ph.D. researchers, evaluation consultants, and other associates to assist clients in successfully implementing and evaluating large-scale, government-funded programs.
For over 30 years, Turner has provided training programs and technical assistance for large-scale programs funded by the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Justice.

Turner and her team have provided evaluation services for over 158 programs in the areas of teen pregnancy prevention, healthy marriage and relationship, fatherhood, workforce development, offender reentry, substance abuse, and nonprofit capacity building. She and her associates have worked with community and faith-based nonprofit organizations to help them develop capacity to create and implement programs that total more than $410 million in federal, state, and local revenue.
Prior to starting AMTC & Associates, Turner gained experience planning large-scale workforce development, welfare reform, and one-stop career center service delivery systems in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In that role, she led a multi-year planning process to transition Milwaukee’s county-based welfare system to the community-based Wisconsin Works (W2) Program. Turner’s work in welfare reform has been showcased internationally, including in the Netherlands and Israel. She is a regular speaker at federal conferences and community events.
