Learning Logistics Coordinator

Sheila Ornelas is proud to be a learning logistics coordinator for the CWTS; her responsibilities include the coordination and training logistics for Kempe CWTS courses.

Early in her career, Sheila worked in the child welfare field in the Jefferson County Intake Unit. There she witnessed true superheroes in action and was inspired by their bravery and dedication to children. Later, Sheila served in an administrative role with Denver Adult Probation for nine years before joining the CWTS team, where she feels privileged to be a contributing team member.

Sheila, a proud Colorado native who enjoys spending time with her family, is the mother of a beautiful 14-year-old daughter. In the cooler months, Sheila and her daughter enjoy football, scary movies, and trying new recipes. In the summer months, life is an adventure of road trips, concerts, and time well spent in Steamboat Springs.
