gloria chan,

owner

Gloria opened Recalibrate to fill the everyday mental wellness gap for go-getters. She is passionate about empowering people with a science-based understanding of mental wellness and a toolbox of realistic tools that provide real impact.

Gloria opened Recalibrate after an unexpected medical battle led her to realize how lacking but needed everyday mental wellness was for high achievers with fast-paced lives. Previously, Gloria led an established career spanning nearly a decade of experience primarily as a leader in Fortune 500 management consulting, including:

  • Owning a multi-million dollar P&L, directing program management and project delivery for engagements, managing and developing cross-functional talent, and driving growth as an executive manager at consulting firm Sense Corp

  • Owning direct consultative relationships with three Fortune 100 companies’ CXOs and executive managers in technical, strategic, and operational capacities

  • Leading a two-year, 75+ person program team to enable Spectrum’s $65bn acquisition of Time Warner Cable for the business intelligence organization
