Micah earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Washington & Jefferson College in 1998, and has since honed his expertise in business management and client services. With years of sales and project management in corporate America, he built his business acumen and extraordinary customer care skills. His background organizing large projects and matching a product to his client’s needs prepared him to found and run The Verve 360˚.

It requires bold, forward thinking to envision a new direction and, more importantly, to act on it. Micah saw Pittsburgh as a city poised for radical re-invention. Downtown had resisted change for decades, but the signs were all pointing toward transformation.

To encourage the new direction, Micah, prompted by his partner Aubre, decided that the city needed a place with a unique concept that would both lead and encourage the coming changes. Together they were, “certain that Verve is the place Pittsburgh was looking for.”

Micah wanted to evolve the traditional spa model to create a space with a distinct and unique vibe. Pilates and yoga, massage, make-up, skin and facial care are all performed in a space unlike any other. But beyond the services, there is a subtle, notable element clients feel upon entering Verve – a sense of welcome that goes beyond simple customer service.

Client service is the priority for all of Verve’s professionals, and Micah’s commitment is that people feel welcome and taken care of on their first visit and every time after. He is clear that once people experience the space, the services and the distinctive employee dynamic that is Verve, they will want to return.

Come and join the Verve family and experience what 360˚ of wellness is all about.

\\ Aubre J. Stacknick

Owner / Licensed Massage Therapist / Entrepreneur

Aubre began her entrepreneurial spirit far before she began her first endeavor at the young age of 18. This yearning came from a long ancestry of talented, creative and intelligent individuals. She spent many successful years as a business owner in both New Jersey and the Pocono’s building and designing custom homes.

Self-motivation and professional experience in financing, client relations, and project management prepared Aubre for her next entrepreneurial leap of faith. Being a visionary, Aubre decided that returning to her long time love of holistic medicine, Pilates and bodywork was what best suited her. After contemplating the where’s and when’s of opening a wellness facility such as Verve, Aubre returned to Pittsburgh where she frequented as a teenager and knew she’d eventually end up. “I knew the minute I got here that it was only a matter of time before Verve would be in motion. We are creating our own market here in Pittsburgh, nothing new to me. We are creating “the” center for health and wellness in downtown Pittsburgh.” Aubre says.

Much experience and many hours of education have proven to be the right formula for another successful undertaking. After 3 years of consideration and 1 year of planning with now partner Micah, Verve opened in December of 2007. Verve has had a tremendous beginning even thru the economic downturn in early to mid 2008 and looks forward to the incredible opportunities the future holds.

Thoughts from Aubre: “I believe in balance of body, mind and spirit. My work emphasizes this importance. Over the years, I have had the pleasure to work with Professional musicians, singers, actors, dancers, athletes of every sort, and business people. My goal is to create bodywork sessions that address your specific needs. My focus has always been to support fluidity, vitality and restore your body to its’ original integrity. Each personalized bodywork session facilitates the healing process on every level through the power of intelligent and intuitive touch. My unique experience with massage in various medical fields such as plastic surgery, pre & peri-natal, neuromuscular, sports therapy and rehabilitation creates a thorough understanding of movement and healing in the human body. I am a firm believer in centering one’s life! Knowledge is power! Bringing these facets of wellness and health together continues to be my goal. This concept prompted the inception of VERVE 360. I love the historical aspect of Pittsburgh so I decided downtown was the only place to be.”

\\ Etta Cramer


I was hired on as the manager for Verve 360 in early 2008. I grew up in the South Hills, and although I’ve moved out-of-state a few times, Pittsburgh has always been my home. In 2007 I married an amazing man, Jason, and gained a step-daughter, Isabella. We were living in Austin, Texas at the time where I was an Assistant Director at a Primrose School. I loved working with the children, and absolutely LOVED my job, but my husband and I felt too far away from our families in Pittsburgh. Luckily, my brother Micah and future sister-in-law Aubre were searching for administrative help for their new business, Verve 360.

When I started at Verve, we only occupied the third floor of the building and had two employees in addition to myself, a Pilates Instructor and an Esthetician. Through a lot of hard work and determination the business quickly began to flourish, and soon we were able to add more to our staff, including Yoga Instructors and additional Massage Therapists. In March of 2010, I went on maternity leave for my beautiful daughter, Evelyn, and when I returned 3 months later Verve had expanded even further! We now occupied the first floor with our new salon, adding Nail and Hair services to our menu.

My job has changed quite a bit since I began my career with Verve, but one thing has stayed the same; my passion for helping people and the enjoyment I get from working with family at a company I truly believe in. Our mission has always been to guide individuals on a path to health and wellness, and I have personally seen people transform their lives using the programs at Verve. I feel lucky to be a part of Verve 360 and plan to continue helping our clients achieve their goals in years to come.

Chiropractic Care

\\ Dr. Jeff Schoeller


I help people engage in life, fully, by working with the body to eliminate interference and maximize the human potential that we all have to THRIVE. Through Chiropractic and educating clients on elevated nutrition, positive thought, proper movement, and stress-proofing our lives.

Before becoming a Chiropractor, I was a massage therapist and as fate had it, I had worked in a Chiropractic office. I always thought Chiropractic was JUST about back pain. Yet when I saw intense emotional, spiritual and physical healing – my perspective changed dramatically. I saw peoples’ lives change. I realized that I wanted to provide that to countless individuals to make more of an impact on the world and humankind.

Having a degree and advanced training in Nutrition, I enjoy helping my clients discover how to properly lose weight, increase muscle tone and live with energy!I try to see all people for who they are, that is human, spirit, love. I’ve been described as kind of a dork in many ways. My faith in Chiropractic and our innate healing ability is limitless.
