Michelle Mack

Studio Manager

Bringing together community is one of my deepest passions and becoming studio manager allowed that light to shine bright.  

 

Being able to collaborate with a diverse group of people with the same mind set of inclusivity is unexplainable. 
 

At The Pharm I hope to create a space that allows everyone to express themselves; and plug into Self, in what ever outlet we offer.
 

My favorite part about our space is being able to walk in and become Phamily. My dream is to keep this going and flourish that same intention throughout our beautiful city.
