Michael has been with the YMCA for seven years, where he originally started his Y career in San Diego before joining the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties. Michael has been Executive Director for the University Y Student Center for the past one and a half years and will now also oversee our Tacoma Center YMCA. Michael is passionate about ensuring our staff embody the Y’s core values to provide the best member experience. In his free time, Michael enjoys hiking, trail running, spending time with his dog, and anything else that involves being outdoors.

“I am very excited to be leading the Tacoma Center YMCA. I have had the opportunity over my time at the University Y to meet many of the Tacoma Center members and I know first-hand how passionate they are about Tacoma Center. It really has a special place in people’s hearts and is in many ways their second home. Tacoma Center has been closed for quite some time now, but the opportunity to open our doors back up to the community is not only exciting but I know making a difference for our community.”

Annie Doyle, Health and Well-being Director

"I have worked at the Y for several years and have had the opportunity to work at the Gordon, Mel Korum, and Tom Taylor Y’s serving as the Health and Well-being Director. I have a passion for fitness and specifically for teaching Group exercise classes. Some of my favorite formats to teach are Aim High, The Edge, and Muscle Up classes.  

"When I am not at the Y, I love spending my time outdoors with my family and my Labradors. We like to hike, camp, and relax by the water. I also enjoy outdoor riding, I completed the STP and Flying wheels in 2018, and I can't wait to do it again with a goal of completing it in one day.  

"I am so excited to work at Tacoma Center and bring this community back together!"
