Becky Pauly, DC, In Transition
What is your current role?
Currently, I am seeking a new role in the next phase of my career. As an innate leader who naturally connects with people, I can intuitively see gaps, clarify through supportive conversation with a curious mind and analyze opportunities through a unique perspective.
I thrive in an environment where innovation and creativity are fully supported. Partnering to create effective, forward-thinking and sometimes unexpected solutions is where my skills shine best. I love building relationships, programs, products and paths that improve people’s lives, particularly in health care, where technology is leveraged for the best outcomes.
I was recently called an ‘innovative unicorn’ by a recruiter, and a former colleague called me “Becky-anna” due to my altruistic nature. I felt both were fantastic compliments!

Why did you join the TRUST?
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” You may recognize this quote from Maya Angelou. The concept of that quote has always been part of my innate being. I have been in many networking groups over the years and always found that being around others who operated in this manner was the best fit for me.
I have found many women are relational networkers, which made me seek out a women’s based health care networking group to become a part of. I found the TRUST online in 2019 and joined. With the pandemic, I began to be more involved in 2021 and have appreciated this group for the very reason I set out to find it–connection with other women in health care leadership.
What has been your favorite part of being a TRUST member?
This group is different from other networking groups I have been a part of. It is welcoming and supportive. I immediately feel I am ‘home.’ My favorite part of the TRUST has been the Mentorship Program. I was a mentee in 2022 and the experience was phenomenal.
What one word would you use to summarize what the TRUST means to you?
What is the best career advice you’ve received?
Much like a quilt, each piece of advice has been perfectly woven into the tapestry of my career to create the path I am on today. I can’t say one piece of advice was more important than another; however, different pieces of advice have helped me at different times for different reasons.
How do you support other women in their leadership journey?
Mentoring and coaching others have been part of my innate being for as far back as I can remember. Whether it has been patients, team members, colleagues or people looking to pivot in their career as I did, I love connecting with others and helping them on their journey.
I find joy in meeting other women—learning about their journey, their ‘why,’ what connections they are seeking and seeing how I can help with these connections. I also love asking questions to help others self-reflect and sharing stories of my journey when it can be helpful to others.
What do you love the most about the health care industry?
I love that it is such a diverse and expansive field with each part of it being important in its own way that will impact patients’ lives.
How do you maintain or improve your health and well-being?
Being in the health and well-being industry my entire career, this has always been something I have focused on, but I recognize it’s a journey. The journey is never perfect, but focusing on what I can control and letting go of what I can’t has been the ultimate key to my overall health and well-being.
