Beautz Named Top 30 Under 30 Leaders

Nicole Beautz (MABE ’22) has been named one of Nashville’s Top 30 Under 30 professional and philanthropic leaders for 2024 by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation TN Chapter.

A field clinical specialist at Boston Scientific in Nashville, Beautz graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in biomedical engineering.

Each year, the CFF selects 30 individuals to be part of the Nashville’s Top 30 Under 30 program. Individuals are nominated by their employers, co-workers, and peers. The selections are based on strong career trajectories, activity in the community, and desire to do more.

“As a biomedical engineering graduate, I couldn’t think of a better way to continue to educate myself and advocate for those fighting incurable diseases. UT provided me the resources to get involved early on campus making a difference and knowing the importance of volunteering,” Beautz said. “The volunteer spirit is truly still alive even after graduation and I see that in fellow Vol alumni.”

The Top 30 Under 30 was started in 2009 by the CFF’s Tennessee Chapter to honor young professionals growing in their careers, engage them in community service, and train them how to make the biggest impact possible in the community. Since 2009, Top 30 honorees have raised more than $1 million to support the mission of the CFF.

Beautz has been involved in community causes like Nashville Catholic Young Professionals and Nashville Medical Sales Young Professionals.

At UT, she was president of the Biomedical Engineering Society, president of Alpha Omega Epsilon, a mentor in the Society of Women Engineers, and a biomedical engineering ambassador for the Office of Engineering Professional Practice.

Beutz was an undergraduate researcher in the cardiovascular biomechanics lab for two years under Assistant Professor Bryan Good. Her projects focused on computational fluid dynamics and fluid structure interaction modeling.

Beautz and her fellow honorees are currently participating in a 16-week development program to grow their skill sets through a philanthropic competition raising funds for CSF. The class will be honored at a celebration gala at the Loveless Barn in Nashville on Saturday, August 10 at 6 p.m. CT. The event is open to the public.
