How to get flow to reference a column in a Sharepoint list



I have an approval flow built out and working perfectly! The jist of it is that it is triggered when a new item appears in a sharepoint library and then is supposed to email the supervisor of whoever created the document and if the supervisor approves it the item is saved. 


I know that there is a "Get Supervisor" action which I am trying to stay clear of as there would be 600+ people that would need to have a supervisor added in to their MS account. 


However, I have a sharepoint list that holds the following:

John Doe1234john.doe@email.com1234Jane


This list is already build out and Im wondering if there is an action i can use maybe using the "created by" field and have that match up with the reference list and then look at the supervisor email column!


Let me know if anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated!
