Mike and Marcie Newell were both born and raised in the Greater Pittsburgh area and became good friends during their time at Allegheny College. Mike and Marcie are celebrating 15 years of marriage this year and live in the North Hills of Pittsburgh with their two pups, Gus and Freddie. They enjoy traveling and exploring new places – whether in a Marriott or in their motorhome, affectionately known as Connie.
Mike spent 20+ years working for the YMCA and most recently served as the CEO of the Valley Points Family YMCA in Western PA. His career with the Y evolved from running youth and teen programs to managing the operations of a 3 branch association that served over 10,000 people annually. Marcie has 20 years of sales and sales management experience in the software consulting industry.
They are excited about taking on another new adventure together as they open their first IMAGE Studios location in Cranberry Township, PA. They were attracted to opening an IMAGE Studios franchise based on the company culture and the ability to partner with a collective of small business entrepreneurs that embrace IMAGE STUDIOS core values of creativity, freedom and success.
