I'm Dr. Natalie Underdown

executive COACH
Organizational psychologist
wife & mom

I'm driven by the idea that organizations grow and thrive when their people grow and thrive.
The work we do together leads to better business outcomes and more fulfilled leaders.

I spent over 15 years in Corporate America...

... in Management Consulting and Organizational Development for start-ups and global organizations alike including Accenture, Live Nation Entertainment, and Buck Consultants, while simultaneously completing a masters and doctorate in Industrial/ Organizational Psychology (the psychology of people in the workplace).

In 2017 a massive health opportunity led me to study mindfulness, neuroscience, nutrition, and detoxification, while beginning a daily meditation and wellness practice. While nobody wants to experience illness and burnout, I now see how this experience and subsequent transformation (especially when coupled with my education, work experience, and training) perfectly positioned me to coach and quarterback holistic transformation for others. The result is a unique style of executive coaching that is modern, mindful, and helps clients thrive at work and home. 


I started The NU Company in February of 2018 and have coached hundreds of people, helping them bring mindfulness, inclusion, and elevated leadership skills to work. 

I sit on the Board of HerStory Mentorship, a non-profit focused on helping adolescent girls find purpose through entrepreneurship and digital wellness, and am a fellow at the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate. I live in San Diego with my husband, our daughter (born January 2022 after a 5-year fertility journey) and our golden retriever Bowie Girl. Outside of work, our little family enjoys the beach, live music, and travel.
