Southeast Regional Learning Coordinator

Holly Laydon, BS, MA, joined the team at the Kempe Center in October 2015 as the regional training specialist for the Southeastern Regional Learning Center, located in Canon City, Colorado, where she facilitates the Fundamentals courses. Her focus is to provide the best possible training and education to new caseworkers to better serve the children and families of this great state.

Holly has a bachelor’s in psychology as well as a master’s in clinical counseling. She brings many years of direct child welfare practice to the team. She worked across all child welfare teams during her nearly eight years in Fremont County and has experience and expertise in intake, ongoing, and in-home services for families. While in Fremont County, Holly served as supervisor of the intake team, the adult protection team, and the resource/therapeutic team. She also coordinated, organized, and served as the agency representative for Fremont County’s Child Protection Team. In addition, Holly served on a variety of other joint committees with community partners, including the Combined Investigations Response Team and the ECHO Council for Early Childhood Programs in Fremont County.

When Holly isn’t working, you’ll likely find her playing dress up or going on treasure hunts with her two small daughters, hosting family game nights, or watching a Broncos game.
