Michelle C.

Co-Founder / Executive Director, Gladeo
Santa Monica, CA, USA


Michelle is the Co-Founder of Gladeo. Since 2005, Michelle has been a mentor and volunteered her time conducting college planning seminars for schools and community-based non-profits. While she was volunteering, she saw a huge gap between school and career especially for students who lived in low income neighborhoods or who were the first in their family to go to college. She started Gladeo in 2016 to bridge that gap and since then, Gladeo's online resources and workshops have helped thousands of students, teachers and counselors learn about the diverse array of careers and industries through their videos, interactive website, infographics and social media.

Michelle Cho is an award-winning film producer who co-produced the film "Au Revoir Taipei" which won the NetPac Award at the Berlin Film Festival. Since then she has also worked in film development and financing for LUKA Productions. She was also Director of Operations for a LA-based commercial real estate company. Michelle graduated from Stanford University in 2001 with a degree in Economics.
