Founder & CEO of reCalibrate
Cheryl launched reCalibrate because she is passionate about helping other organizations reach the top of their game. She gets very frustrated when she sees the unmet potential in companies and their people, and delights in helping leaders and organizations move to the next level. And likewise, she gets really jazzed when the people and organizations she works with, make great strides quickly…
She is a successful serial entrepreneur and is honored to have served as President for a highly successful hospital for close to 5 years. The results the hospital achieved and maintained under her leadership speak for themselves. All the metrics that capture the health and sustainability of the business were consistently achieved at the highest possible levels: employee engagement (99th percentile nationally year over year), patient satisfaction (again 99th percentile nationally year over year), quality outcomes (consistently among the best in the nation), and achieving net income and operating margins (rising in spite of operating in a tightly regulated industry undergoing tumultuous change) that are almost unheard of in her industry. YOY Bottom Line Growth led to a bottom line increase of 59% and Operating Margins far outpacing similar organizations (up to 87% higher) from the point that Cheryl began serving as President to her stepping down from her role. As a matter of fact, during a senior leadership meeting with almost 600 leaders in attendance, the COO of the healthcare system asked everyone present to give our hospital a standing ovation for our results that year…And the first thing we did was fire off an e-mail to our staff congratulating them on being recognized for all their fantastic work…
If you want to work with someone who has ‘been there, done that’ and done it well for long periods of time, whether in an entrepreneurial venture or serving as a senior executive in a large organization, Cheryl fits the bill.
Cheryl has worked in both the U.S. and abroad and a few of her clients include Allied Irish Bank, Reed McClure Law Firm, Transglobal Services, Active Spine & Sport, the Washington State Department of Transportation and Charles Schwab.
She has also presented to varying groups and organizations, or been featured in publications including The News Tribune, WAC, Washington Journal, Women on the Move, and The Greater Seattle Area Chamber of Commerce to name a few.
