Lucas joins NRVCS as Human Resources Director

BLACKSBURG, VA – Angelia “Angie” Lucas, BHA, MHR, has recently joined New River Valley Community Services (NRVCS) as the agency’s Director of Human Resources.

Lucas, who has over twenty-six years of experience in the healthcare industry (including sixteen years of that experience in human resources management), began her new position in March 2020 – just as the initial impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic was being felt.

“We were excited to be able to bring on someone of Angie’s caliber to our team,” notes NRVCS Executive Director James Pritchett, “but we could not have anticipated just how valuable her experience in healthcare would be for us as we began to adjust our operations in response to the pandemic.”

Lucas earned a Bachelors in Healthcare Administration and a Masters in Human Resource Management from Ashford University. She has vast experience in employee relations and engagement, employee law compliance, strategic planning, data analysis, change management, recruitment and retention, and professional development.

“Being part of NRVCS is a wonderful opportunity,” says Lucas, who lives in Pulaski with her husband, Gary, and their two daughters. “I look forward to supporting our employees while they are taking care of the community.”

She adds, “I am excited and honored to have joined this team!”
