"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

Benjamin Franklin

West Regional Learning Coordinator

Stacy Falsone, BA, is honored to serve as a CWTS regional learning coordinator. She assists with the delivery and coordination of training in the west region.

Stacy’s career is a patchwork quilt of roles in various fields, with the common threads of education and child welfare woven throughout. She completed her undergraduate degree in psychology with a minor in English at Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University), and she is currently working on a master of social work degree through the University of Denver (go Pioneers!), taking weekend classes in Glenwood Springs. Stacy’s first role post-grad was working as a behavior coach for children with autism, and soon after she began her career in child welfare as an intake case manager for Mesa County. She also worked as a foster care coordinator for Mesa, licensing, training and supporting foster and kinship homes. During her tenure at Mesa, Stacy served as a the IV-E kinship support specialist and helped develop this program in an effort to promote family connections and strengthen permanency outcomes for youth. Stacy is also licensed as a SAFE home study evaluator for the state of Colorado. Her most recent role was in the field of higher education, working as a program advisor for a federal, grant-funded program that provides professional mentoring, coaching, and advising for first-generation college students. Seeing her students overcome barriers and strive to meet their full potential as learners was part of what inspired Stacy to return for her master’s degree. She is in awe of the complexity, strength, and resiliency that humans demonstrate, and she is passionate about the pursuit of knowledge and new discoveries.

A champion for growth mindset, Stacy is never afraid to try something new (ask her about the time she worked as a trail guide teaching people about African mountain gorillas). She’s a proud western Colorado native, and when she is not at work or in class, you can find her running a trail race or camping somewhere in the Colorado mountains.
