Michelle began her career in Child Welfare in the early 90’s initially working in juvenile court as a juvenile probation officer working with Truant, At-Risk Youth and CHINS (Child in Need of Services) cases and as a CASA program coordinator.  Michelle began working with Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS) in 2001.  During her time with DCFS, Michelle worked in a number of roles, including managing the Visitation Office and volunteers, CFWS social worker in Family Treatment Court, and  supporting caregivers as Foster Parent Trainer (with RFTI – Resource Family Training Institute).

Michelle began working on Regional Core Training curriculum, and then as a Region 1 coach training new employees, and supporting existing staff in 2012.  Michelle is passionate about supporting, encouraging and retaining child welfare staff in their work serving children and families.

Amanda White - amwhite2@uw.edu

While completing a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Human Development and a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Psychology at Washington State University in 2001, Amanda discovered the field of Child Welfare. There she was propelled into the MSW program at Eastern Washington University and participated in the CWTAP Program, graduating in 2004.

Amanda began with the Alliance in October 2015 after nearly 13 years with Children’s Administration. During her time with CA, Amanda held numerous positions which included social work and later supervision in Child Protection and Child & Family Welfare Services.  Those positions provided her the opportunity to support best practice in several offices, partner with local tribes and promote community involvement to improve the lives of children.

In 2013 Amanda also became a licensed foster parent, later adopting, to complete her family.

These experiences have all led to the excitement and passion behind coaching, training and supporting child welfare staff.
