She holds a Master’s of Science in Community Nutrition from Iowa State University and a Master’s in Organizational Development from Pepperdine University. Ama has worked as an internal evaluator, both at a state and local level. For the past 7 years, she has provided support to many non-profit and public-sector organizations as an evaluation and organizational development consultant.
Ama believes in taking a participatory and use-focused approach to evaluation. Those doing the work should be involved in telling the story. She also believes that the components of organizational development, research, and evaluation each play a pivotal role in the evaluation process. The role of evaluators vary widely, often dependent on factors such as the nature of the project, the evaluator’s own skillsets, etc.  Ama sees an important role of an evaluator as a “facilitator of organizational inquiry”, helping organizations to infuse evaluative thinking into their everyday operations and use data results to inform program improvement.
