meet the team.

Hello there. We are pleased to meet you! We may be a little quirky and weird, but we are here to make things easy for you.

A few quick things before you get into the deep stuff:

Megan has these weird, yellow, fuzzy shoes she likes to wear. Alyssa is our resident plant-care expert because she kills the least of them. And Garrett’s favorite weather is beanie weather.

Garrett Tichy


Garrett Tichy is the Founder and Owner of hygge coworking and hygge wellness, the co-founder of That’s Novel Books, and a co-founder of the @supportlocalorelse movement. A strong advocate for Charlotte, Tichy is well-known for his natural ability to build diverse and inclusive communities of professionals – both online and in-person – who appreciate and thrive on the power of connection to elevate an initiative, a workplace and a city.

When he’s not rocking his yellow shoes at a workout, eating bread at Lincoln’s Haberdashery or hanging at any of the numerous coffee shops he loves, he’s usually baking pie with his daughter, Olivia.

Megan Pastor

General Manager

Megan moved to Charlotte in 2009 and hasn’t looked back! While she enjoyed growing up in Delaware and misses being near the beach, she quickly realized Charlotte places her close to both the beach and the mountains! It may seem a bit sporadic that she’s gone from selling cupcakes to all things hospitality, finding people jobs to overseeing the intricacies of commercial development opportunities and planning events, but we like to think she’s gained the necessary skills to fit right in to the hygge fam! Megan appreciates a handwritten note, still uses a paper planner, enjoys meeting new people, laughing, and baking. One day she’ll fully embrace the digital world, but until then, we support her love of all things paper!

Alyssa Pressler

Marketing Director

Alyssa is proudly from Upstate NY, but she doesn’t miss the snow and has been basking in the sunshine in Charlotte since 2017. You can usually find her with a book or an easy mug filled with coffee in hand. Alyssa helped launch our hygge book club when she was still just a member, but she knew she had the drive to do more so she joined the team and later opened up That’s Novel Books, a used bookstore in hygge camp north end.

With her background in journalism, digital marketing and social media management, she’s here to help us connect with you and answer all your questions.  She makes being part of the hygge fam even more special.
