Nikki Rauscher

HR & Operations Coordinator

Nikki joined Canyon View Capital in 2015 when the Human Resources (HR) function for Canyon View Properties was moved from Springfield, Missouri to the Corporate Office in Santa Cruz.  What was intended as a part-time commitment quickly grew to full-time as Canyon View continued to grow.

Nikki earned her bachelor’s degree in Child Development from San Jose State University.  After spending time as a pre-school aide, she eventually decided to put her problem-solving and relationship skills to work in another field.  She began working as the manager for the thrift store at her children’s school.  It was this position that really taught her about the world of Human Resources.  Nikki was tasked with managing operations while juggling hiring, training, employee schedules, and resolving customer and employee conflicts for a staff of over 300 parent volunteers and 10 paid personnel.

At Canyon View, Nikki handles the Human Resources needs for both Canyon View Capital and Canyon View Properties.  Her duties include onboarding new employees, coaching managers, managing payroll and benefits, and everything in between.   A key member of the property onboarding team, she performs various functions that begin immediately after a property is purchased including setting up utilities, initializing websites, and facilitating the setup of numerous software modules.
