Ann Wolter

Evaluation Associate

Ann Wolter is the owner of Ann Wolter Consulting, specializing in program design, evaluation implementation, and grant management services in the areas of adolescent pregnancy prevention (with a focus on sexual risk avoidance), healthy marriage and relationship education, and responsible fatherhood. In her work with AMTC, Wolter is responsible for writing and managing program performance evaluation plans for assigned AMTC clients, including development of evaluation questions, data collection and monitoring tools and assignments, policies, procedures and related forms; program training plans; staff monitoring and quality improvement protocols and tools; and focus group planning, implementation and reporting.

Wolter developed grant program management and oversight skills during her service as a federal project officer within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families, and as the director of a federally funded statewide teen pregnancy prevention and sexual risk avoidance program within the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services. At AMTC, her focus has been on evaluation of such programs. Her 27 years of experience working in these capacities, 22 years of which have related to state or federal grant programs, lends to the capacity building expertise she brings to AMTC clients. She assists AMTC clients in areas of collaborations and strategic partnerships with community and government organizations, incorporation of emerging best practices, and coordination of community providers, volunteer recruitment, training and maintenance.

As a former high school English teacher, Wolter is an integral member of the AMTC grant- and report-writing team and serves our clients in these capacities as well.

She received a bachelor of science degree in English and French Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
