Belonging: Meet Srishti Mirchandani Gallagher

Srishti has spent her entire career in healthcare, moving from clinical operations to population health, including helping to launch Eleanor Health, which focuses on whole-person, evidence-based addiction treatment and recovery services. Born in South Carolina, she later moved and grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. She has spent time on both coasts (NYC, SF), and in the midwest (St. Louis, Chicago). She and her family are currently settled in San Francisco. As she hits her one-year anniversary as SVP of Product at Belong, she shares a little bit about her role, why healthcare, and what she does in her free time. Get to know a bit about Srishti:

Tell us a little about your role as SVP of Product at Belong

I work on the full product lifecycle, from ideating and vetting opportunities, to building new concepts, through launch and early operations. Each of these steps is highly collaborative, so I work closely with coworkers from across the organization every day to span the full scope of Belong's product and solution offerings.
Far and away the best part of my job is the potential for impact on health, the healthcare system, and each other as team members is the best part of my job. In my role, I have the opportunity to consider, design, and operate ways for Belong to have this impact. The most challenging part is also part of the fun: healthcare is complicated! When you love learning new things, this same challenge feels like an opportunity, but there can certainly be times where the complexity is exactly what we need to cut through to have positive impact on health.   

What led you to this career or to Belong?  

I am passionate about valuing health as our most fundamental asset and have pursued a career in healthcare because I believe we, as individuals and as a society, can do (much) better to truly pursue health. I have had fortunate experiences building businesses that share the same values. I found my way to Belong because of the incredible team that is dedicated to improving health for complex, underserved populations. 

How do you like to spend your time outside of work? 

Outside of work, you will typically find me with my family outdoors in the Bay Area. A great day involves at least one urban hike or nature hike. My favorite place for hiking is staying local in the stunning Presidio of San Francisco. These days, I get to experience the pure joy of playground-hopping on behalf of our toddler! 

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from? 

"Whatever you do, do it with all your heart" were actually the words on an inspirational door hanger I used as a kid... but I attribute the advice to my aunt! I strive to live by this and dedicate my energy and thinking to whatever challenge I have taken on.
