Sharon Colomb -

Sherry Colomb is a Development and Facilitation Specialist working with the Caregiver Training Team. With a background in Elderly/Disabled Adult case management, Sherry’s interest in child welfare began with her decision to become foster parent in 2005. Training and support were essential in her personal journey as a foster and adoptive parent, and she now feels privileged to be able to support other caregivers in this way.

Sherry finds one of the most rewarding parts of her job to be the opportunity to share her passion for seeing families reunify, and watching caregivers catch the vision for the unique and powerful role they can play in this process.

With deep respect for the value of our caregiver’s time, Sherry strives to make the caregiver courses the Alliance develops and presents meaningful, engaging and easily utilized in the in- home environment.

In 2021 Sherry became a Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) ® Practitioner and is excited to be able to share TBRI Principles with the caregivers of Washington State.


Luanne Marshall -

Luanne Marshall is the Licensing Coordinator with the Alliance CaRES program. She assists prospective foster parents with the Licensing process as well as offering specialized trainings on various topics.

Luanne has always been drawn to helping others. She started her journey in Social Services right out of high school, working for the Tacoma Rescue Mission Women’s Mental Health facility followed by the YWCA Battered Women’s Shelter, all while pursuing an Early Childhood Degree, so she could pursue her life’s dream of working with children. She fulfilled that dream by opening her own daycare, becoming an unlicensed relative care provider and a Foster Parent for 25 years, mostly caring for drug impacted, medically fragile infants. She grew her family through adoption with the placement of her daughter.

Through the years Luanne has been involved in all aspects of Foster Care: training, serving on boards, doing start up projects such as the Transportation/Supervision program, Liaison program, Recruitment and Retention, the FIRST program, Licensing, working in the Adoption unit and training. To balance out her life Luanne had her own catering/event planning company, hosting many Foster parent and staff appreciation events over the years. She loves any opportunity to plan an event and cook!
