Valmarie Turner is Loudoun’s newest assistant county administrator.
Starting Nov. 2, she will oversee the county’s departments of Community Corrections; Family Services; Health Services; Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Developmental Services; and the Juvenile Court Services Unit.
Turner was selected by County Administrator Tim Hemstreet after a nationwide search to fill the vacant position. She comes to Loudoun from Seminole County, FL, where she was most recently director of the Community Services Department. There, Turner oversaw the implementation of affordable housing and community development projects, human services and financial assistance programs, veterans’ services, juvenile diversion programs and mandated services. She also held local government posts in Hillsborough County, FL, the city of Daytona Beach, FL, and Fulton County, GA.
She has a bachelor’s degree in business economics from Florida A&M University and a master’s degree in public administration from Walden University.
Turner will be one of four assistant county administrators, serving under Hemstreet and Deputy County Administrator Charles Yudd.
