Nicola De Paul, Ph.D.

Dr. Nicola De Paul provides organizational consulting, tailored leadership & employee well-being curriculum development, and transformational coaching to promote lasting organizational culture change.


Her early career years at the University of Washington's Packard-Gates Population Leadership Program taught her the fundamentals of transformational leadership development in our healthcare systems. Her doctorate work in clinical psychology (Seattle Pacific University, 2014), emphasized organizational strategies to promote employee well-being and her postdoctoral fellowship accelerated her experience coaching leadership teams (VA Puget Sound Health Care System, 2015).

She is a licensed clinical psychologist and has worked as a primary care psychologist, clinical trainer, supervisor/mentor, and leadership team consultant within the Veteran’s Health Administration (VHA, since 2015). She is the principal consultant and founder of Mending Health Systems (est. 2022) and host of the Menders podcast. She is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and the American Psychological Association (APA).

On a personal note, ​Nicola & her family relocated to Reno, Nevada in 2020 and they haven't looked back. When she's not working or podcasting, you can find her reading a book in her sun drenched backyard, playing with her four-year old daughter, walking her dog Sylvie, cooking with her husband, and exploring the food and coffee scenes in her town and around the world.
