MĀVVEN is founded on the belief that activity and engagement leads to personal clarity and fulfillment. We believe that quality of life comes from connection and self-discovery. We offer new experiences in an intimate space where you can be seen, heard, and celebrated for your uniqueness. We provide a monthly calendar of group activites including sound baths, meditation, support groups, speaker series', and DIY workshops. Come in and try something you've never tried before and be introduced to different modalities in a space that feels like home.

Who We Are

Lisa Waters


Michelle Villemaire


We are Lisa and Michelle, lifelong friends raising families in the Palisades. Lisa's career spans 25 years in the health and wellness space. Michelle is an Interior designer, DIY expert, television personality, and activist. We've combined our experience to create MĀVVEN and in doing so, we are showing our daughters the importance of pursuing your passion

and giving back to the community.


Our name, MĀVVEN, is a combination of our daughters' names, and speaks to the definition of "maven" - one who understands. Mavens are considered experts in a field. Yet one does not become a maven overnight- MĀVVENS are born from an accumulation of knowledge, experience and inspiration.
