Michael Heavey

Member at Large

Senior Business Consultant


Mike joined tSB in June of 2015. Mike has experience in both the private and public sector – having worked for two Seattle tech giants and for the State of Washington and King County. Like many native Seattleites, Mike’s love for the outdoors started at a young age with weekend trips with his family in the Cascades. With an education rooted in strong Jesuit traditions, Mike strongly believes that the most important ingredient to bring about greater social equality is empowering the disenfranchised. He is excited to play a small role in helping tSB achieve this over arching goal and to fight for social justice in our community — one youth at a time.

Prior to joining this amazing board he served as a mentor at the Service Board for 6 years. In 2012 Josefino started his own carpet cleaning business in 2012, Angel’s Carpet Care, which he named after his little brother Angel. Josefino truly treasures tSB and hopes to make a positive impact as a board member. He is excited to bring his knowledge and devotion to this great organization so that it can continue to make a positive impact in the life of so many teenagers.
