Paula Buick, RN, CLSS

Healthcare Planner, Clinician

Paula Buick is a registered nurse and healthcare planner with more than three decades of experience.

As part of NBBJ’s healthcare consultancy group, she works with the healthcare practice across the firm’s many offices. With her background as an ICU nurse at Massachusetts General Hospital, her empathy for the daily challenges of healthcare makes her a highly effective advocate for care, education and research. Her nursing experience trained her to observe, attend to details, understand potential outcomes, discriminate among vast amounts of data, and think carefully before jumping to a solution and identifying “the problem.”
