Small-County Learning Coordinator
Skyla Jeffryes, BS, joined the CWTS team in 2023 as a small-county learning coordinator. She facilitates learning for new caseworkers and supervisors, aiming to create a safe and comfortable environment for learners so that they leave with more knowledge and confidence to work with the families they serve. She loves getting to connect with other caseworkers across the state and sharing her substantial experience in the field.
Skyla graduated from University of Colorado at Colorado Springs with a bachelor’s in sociology and a minor in women’s and ethnic studies. She started her career in child welfare in 2013 as an ongoing caseworker in Fremont County. She then spent nearly nine years in Pueblo County, working her way up to becoming an ongoing supervisor. In that time working with children and families, she worked mostly with children six and under. Skyla helped develop the Safe Baby program in Pueblo County, the first Colorado county to adopt the program. Skyla finished her career in Pueblo County as a Supervisor in Ongoing. She brings experience working in treatment facilities, with domestic violence survivors and families within the child welfare system.
When Skyla is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and often volunteers at her church. She has a love for sports and coaching her children. During the summer months, Skyla can be found on a lake enjoying the beautiful outdoors of Colorado.
