Nancy Kopriva | Senior Manager, Human Resources

Nancy Headshot 2021 04 14

Joining the team at CCS feels like the culmination of all my previous experiences coming together in the perfect spot. After completing a degree in psychology, I started my career in the social services sector. I learned a great deal about the importance of providing high quality, person-centred support to some of society’s most vulnerable individuals.

As my career evolved and I began to assume more leadership responsibilities, I developed a keen interest in Human Resources. I realized that in order for social and community service workers to effectively assist their service recipients to achieve their personal goals, they needed the backing of a strong organization to provide them with guidance, policies, procedures and resources to support the achievement of clear and attainable performance expectations.

Since that realization, I have attained my designation as a Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL) and served in the HR departments at a number of social and community service agencies since 2001. When not working I enjoy activities that promote a balanced lifestyle, including exercise, cooking healthy food, reading, coffee dates with friends and eagerly anticipating the release of the next Star Wars movie!
