"When I was about 23, I took an Executive Success Programs/NXIVM "intensive, ' what I understood to be a self-help/personal growth course that helped me handle my previous shyness", she wrote".
Mack, who appears in several recruitment videos with Raniere on youTube, is believed to be his top recruiter and introduced corporeal punishment for the "slaves".
One thing is for certain, Keith Raniere is NXIVM's leader and the main creator behind the group's beliefs.
It has been stated by NXIVM's former publicist, Frank Parlato, that Mack is second in command in Raniere's sex cult. In 2012, she actually brought Mack into the organization, but left following concerns of Raniere being a sexual predator with underage girls. Sarah Edmondson, a Canadian actress who has spoken openly about her experience trying to leave the cult, supported Kreuk's statement.
The New York Post said that Kreuk had been apart of NXIVM's "Dominus Obsequious Sororium", which means "Master Over the Slave Woman".

Kreuk's role allegedly included luring women into the cult to be used as "sex slaves" for Raniere, who was referred to as "Vanguard". She joined NXIVM in 2006 along with fellow Smallville star Kristin Kreuk. From there, they were indoctrinated into the group's negative beliefs about women, sometimes put on extremely restrictive diets, and were forced to perform "acts of care" for their Masters.
The Albany Times Union said that Mack is identified in the NY complaint against Ranier as an "unnamed co-conspirator".
Authorities said that Ranier's group was financed by Clare Bronfman, an heiress to the liquor company Seagram.
