I had the opportunity to work with Amy to develop a theory of change model for Turning Leaf in 2016. I was impressed when I met her, and I’ve continued to be impressed by her in the years since. Turning Leaf was facing some serious problems in its early years, but Amy and her team were able to implement the plan we created together and turn things around. Amy truly cares about working effectively to help prisoners reenter and succeed in the community. In order to do so she uses relevant research to look for opportunities to improve her program, and performance data to manage her program to help returning prisoners achieve essential outcomes. She is building a body of work that is based on the research she has accessed and her program’s performance, which she is disseminating so as to help elevate the quality of reentry services in this country.
