Hi! I’m Dr. Angie Eilers, a first-generation college-goer, an activist for educational access, a former professor and mom of twins. I received a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Bachelors from Lawrence University. After 20+ in educational research, I launched UR Turn by winning a National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research award. Access to education has been my economic engine throughout life —as it has been been for individuals and whole nations around the world. Please join us in increasing educational access for all!
