Yvonne Dorsey-Colomb (born August 19, 1952) is an American politician from the state of Louisiana. She represents the 14th district in the Louisiana State Senate as a member of the Democratic Party. She also served in the Louisiana House of Representatives, and was Speaker Pro Tempore.[1]

Dorsey-Colomb and her husband, Sterling Colomb, Jr., reside in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Sterling founded the Colomb Foundation to raise awareness of breast cancer. Though John Neely Kennedy, the state treasurer, listed the foundation as not adhering to state laws on disclosing their financial information,[2] a later investigation found the foundation to be in compliance with all state laws.[1]

Dorsey-Colomb is listed among the state and local officials who endorsed the unsuccessful re-election in 2014 of Democrat U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu.[3]
