Program and Events Manager
Michelle was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA but spent many of her summer holidays as a youth with her mother's family in Mount Baker. Before moving to Seattle in 2013, Michelle helped run micro-businesses in real estate, the professional sports industry, and the fitness industry.
Having a desire and drive to support small businesses thrive, she immediately got involved at The Feed Store, initially working weekends only, but was soon offered a full time managerial position and the opportunity to relaunch her family ice cream business.
Having roots here, Mount Baker was the only neighborhood she considered living and to create her own community away from home.

Joe has worked for the Mount Baker Community Club for over 15 years. Aside from his work at the Clubhouse, he also drives for Metro, cleans a building on Capitol Hill and works for the City of Seattle's Bicycle Sunday program. He also volunteers at Beacon Hill Elementary School, United Way Tax Campaign, Capitol Hill Community Lunch Program, Seattle International Film Festival, Book-ItRepertory Theater, Town Hall, Freedom Socialist Party, Vegfest, National Parks Conservation Association and the KUOW pledge drives. When not working and volunteering, he enjoys biking, running, traveling and spending time with friends and family, including his delightful granddaughter.
Mary Joy Lopez
Mary Joy has worked at the clubhouse for 10 years. Her day job is at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center with the Cord Blood Transplant Program and she's lived in the Seward Park neighborhood for 20 years, having grown up in Issaquah. At the Clubhouse, she enjoys interacting with the community. Mary Joy's tip for a successful event: Have a good caterer who will be responsible for more than the food, especially clean up service. It is no fun for family and friends to have the clean up responsibility at the end of a long day!
